The Round table on "Existing and future strategy of brucellosis control in Bosnia and Herzegovina" was held on 11 November 2015 on Jahorina, organized by the EU funded IPA 2012 project that provides for Technical assistance in coordination of programmes of Animal Disease Control and eradication in the fields of brucellosis and rabies  in BiH.

The Round Table was attended by representatives of BiH institutions involved in the control and eradication of brucellosis in BiH, international experts for brucellosis, Dr. Jose Maria Blasco and Dr. Toni Kirandzinski and project representatives.

The aim of this meeting was to gather representatives of institutions involved in decision-making and experts for control of brucellosis to discuss the possibilities and requirements for the next multiannual control program in Bosnia and Herzegovina which should be based on good local and international practices and experiences as well as on EU and international standards in this area. The Control strategy or Operational program for control of brucellosis in small ruminants in BiH has been in force since 2009 and the 2015 year is the 7th one i.e. the final year of its implementation. This Operational programme has included mass vaccination of small ruminants in the first year, and regular vaccination of offspring and previously unvaccinated animals in the following years.

Participants were introduced with the activities taken in the field of brucellosis control in BiH and results of implemented measures. Based on discussions held, recommendations relating to the future activities of all actors in controlling the disease after 2016 were pointed out. The project team, in cooperation with the lead beneficiary institution, Veterinary Office of BiH as well as with other authority and relevant institutions at all appropriate levels in the country continues with the development of the document Brucellosis Control in BiH for the period 2017 - 2021.
