The African Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) is a specialized technical office of the African Union. It was established in 1951 and was initially known as the Inter-African Bureau of Epizootic Diseases. Initially it was mainly concerned with rinderpest control, but its mandate was expanded to other major animal diseases in 1956 and finally to all aspects of animal resource development in 1970.


The 2005-2007 AU/IBAR programme is focused on Animal Health and production as well as trade and markets. In this context trypanosomiasis which is considered a major obstacle to African agricultural development is of particular concern to AU/IBAR.
