to maintain our world free from Rinderpest
Rinderpest, that caused the deaths of millions of animals all over the world, is the only animal disease officially declared eradicated from the planet by the OIE and FAO in 2011. However, the world remains vulnerable to a reoccurrence of the disease, threatening animal health security globally.
We, veterinary students, veterinary practitioners and laboratory technicians, key players in animal health, must prepare to face it.
To raise awareness, the OIE has created the Rinderpest “Never Turn Back” communication campaign and, for the second time, invite you to play a role in the post eradication era. The serious game aims at ensuring that we know how to detect and react to this disease.
