The main goal of the International Center will be to prevent the states from all kinds of epizootics. It will prepare programmes for prophylaxis, supervision and eradication of diseases on wild animals, will make analysis of the risk from emergence and dissemination of diseases on game, and of damages caused by them. The Center will develop projects for cooperation between the veterinary services and the hunting & fishing organizations on national, regional and international level.
The Agreement for the construction of the International Center for Disease Control on Wild Animals in Bulgaria was signed early last year between the Government of R. Bulgaria, represented by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and the International Hunting and Game Conservation Council.
At the meeting, attended also by Prof. Nikola Belev, OIE Regional Representative for Eastern Europe and Honorary President of the OIE Regional Commission for Europe, it was agreed to carry out the General Assembly of the World Hunting Association in 2015 in Bulgaria.
