The International Air Transport Association (IATA) – the trade body for over 290 airlines – and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) have been working together for more than ten years, and reap mutual benefits from this partnership.

Within the framework of this collaboration, IATA has supported the OIE’s efforts to raise awareness of the risk of dissemination of African swine fever by air passengers. Through IATA’s regional offices in North Asia and Asia–Pacific, a joint communication campaign was launched to coincide with the Chinese New Year holiday period (from 20 January to 20 February 2020).
