PVS Evaluation of Veterinary Services The diagnosis4 fundamental components Market Access Critical competencies (6 - 14) Human, Technical InteractionPhysical, Capability with MarketFinancial and Stake AccessResources Authority holders 5 levels of advancement
PVS Tool: Levels of advancement• 5 levels of advancement Level 1 (qualitative) for each no compliance critical competency• A higher level assumes compliance Level 5 with all preceding full compliance with levels OIE standards
Linking the OIE PVS and FMD PCP ToolsThe basic principle is that a country embarking onthe PCP-FMD should acquire the appropriatecapacity and capability of the VS to conductactivities aimed at the control or elimination ofFMD (and other TADs). This is referred to as the‘enabling environment’ in the PCP.Fundamental to progressively develop theVeterinary Service as the country moves upthrough the FMD-PCP stages and officialrecognition by the OIE of national controlprogrammes and free status
33 OIE PVS Critical Competencies (CCs)among 46 are of particular relevance to theprevention and control of FMD: Animal Health (4 / 5) Veterinary Public Health (1 / 4) Laboratory (2 / 2) Trade (4 / 8) General Management (17 / 31) Resources (5 / 6) 11
Linking the PCP-FMD stages to the OIE PVS levels of Critical CompetenciesTable I. Selection of FMD related PVS CCs
A correspondence table has been worked outbetween the PCP Stages and the compliance levelrequired for each of the PVS Critical competencies (CCs) relevant to FMD control FMD PCP Stage 1: PVS level 3 required for 7 CCs FMD PCP Stage 2: PVS level 3 required for 17 CCs FMD PCP Stage 3 (request for official OIE endorsed FMD national control programme): PVS Level 3 for all 33 CCs FMD PCP Stage 4 (transition towards OIE-free status with or without vaccination): PVS level 3 for all 33 CCs
