Welcome and Introduction

The equine industries of racing, sports horses and endurance require a consistent investment in the health of horses to stabilise the industry and address the environmental exposure to infectious diseases in particular. Africa has always been a difficult environment for horses with ongoing major diseases such as biliary, African horse sickness and the threat of an outbreak of Equine Influenza.

Throughout the world investment in Equine Health is considered an imperative for industry survival.

With globalisation the transport of infections across borders has become a risk to the continued health of our industry. With this in mind we are calling on all horse industries to contribute significantly to the establishment and maintenance of the existing expertise at the University of Pretoria, Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute, and in the private sector to secure our future. We are equally committed to leverage your support with Government funding and support to enable growth of the industry. >> Read More

    wrong question, or asked the question wrong
