IFIAR Update on COVID-19

IFIAR would like to assure our Members and stakeholders that we remain operational despite the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the rapidly evolving Covid-19 situation globally and to ensure the health and safety of our Members, IFIAR staff and the general public the IFIAR Board made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all in-person IFIAR meetings in March and to cancel the 2020 Plenary Meeting scheduled to take place in Zurich in April (including all related meetings and events). The Board will continue to closely monitor the situation and adjust future scheduled events accordingly.

As a result of the cancellation of the 2020 Plenary and other meetings, IFIAR is adopting alternate procedures to allow necessary Member business to proceed.

A collection of public information from Member jurisdictions on relevant developments relating to the COVID-19 situation is available here. A separate resource for IFIAR Members containing further information is also available in the Members-only area of the website (Members must be logged in to view).

IFIAR will continue to adjust our operations as necessary to allow IFIAR business to proceed during this challenging time.

If you have any questions about IFIAR activity you may contact the IFIAR Secretariat at secretariat@ifiar.org.
