The Animal Health Board (AHB) is an incorporated society, legally responsible for managing and implementing the National Pest Management Strategy (NPMS) for bovine tuberculosis (bovine TB) in New Zealand. Its powers derive from the Biosecurity Act 1993 and its mission is to eradicate bovine TB from New Zealand.
The AHB is made up of representatives from the farming sector and local government. It is accountable to its member organisations and it also has responsibilities to the Minister for Primary Industries.
Governance of the Board is managed by a Board of Directors who are appointed by the member organisations through the Animal Health Board Representatives’ Committee. The AHB supports 15 TBfree Committees around the country to maintain effective links with the farming community and stakeholders at a regional level.
