1924: The creation of the Office International des Epizooties (OIE, known today as WOAH)

One hundred years ago, 28 founding nations came together to address a shared concern – the health and well-being of the animals upon which our societies depend at a time when the trade of animals and its products had been massively expanding. During the last century, the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, formerly known as OIE), has been constantly evolving into a global beacon of cooperation and trusted leadership in animal health.

"I deeply want animals and their habitats to be respected and preserved. May people respect themselves and other beings in nature. Congratulations WOAH for 100 years of existence and for maintaining animal health in the world." Ubirajara Maciel Costa

"I envision a future where everyone treats animals with compassion, upholding the principles of animal welfare. I aspire for the eradication of animal cruelty and the reduction of diseases. My wish is for a united world committed to safeguarding animals, the environment, and the entire ecosystems." Ardelene Ambasa

"A fair world is a no-hunger world. WOAH has been working for a world where animals and food are goods for livelihoods and fair trade. The ABPA wishes are of a WOAH 100 times stronger to support life, coexistence, and peace." Ricardo Santin

"Happy 100-year work anniversary! Thank you WOAH for your unwavering commitment to greatness – you continue to inspire us with your guidance to animal health and its related industries globally and positively impact everyone around you. Celebrate well – you deserve it!" Md Shahidullah Kausar
