To improve the efficiency and rapidity of animal disease information exchange among OIE Members, especially for early warning purposes, the OIE has an electronic mailing list for OIE Delegates and international and regional organisations dealing with animal and public health. This list has been open to any institution or person interested in receiving near real-time information on animal disease exceptional events. Subscribers to the OIE-Info distribution list may also receive other relevant information released by the OIE on various topics in relation to the others missions of the Organisation.
