FAO Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases Operations (ECTAD) regional unit for Eastern Africa was established July 2007 as a decentralised ECTAD unit. Part of the Regional Animal Health Centre (RAHC) and located at the UN Complex in Nairobi, Kenya, the unit facilitates the sharing of information and provision of technical assistance to FAO member countries during animal disease outbreaks.

This website serves as an avenue for sharing information on transboundary animal diseases (TADs) within and without the Eastern Africa region and in effect strengthens the collaborative regional networks.
