The WOAH Sub-Regional Representation for Eastern Africa was established in Nairobi (Kenya) following an agreement signed in 2009 between the (then) OIE and the Government of Kenya. The first WOAH Representative took office in 2010, Dr. Walter Masiga, and retired from the WOAH in December 2016. The current Representative is Dr. Samuel Wakhusama.

The WOAH Sub Regional Representation for Eastern Africa has been established to cover the member countries of the WOAH in the region, in close collaboration with the WOAH Regional Representation for Africa, based in Bamako (Mali) and, as far as the Comoros, the Seychelles and Tanzania are concerned, also with the WOAH Sub-Regional Representation for Southern Africa, based in Gaborone (Botswana) : Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
