Animals + humans = one health

Under the slogan ‘animals + humans = one health’, the European Commission brings together information on the EU Animal Health Strategy for 2007–13 and the third edition of the EU Veterinary Week which runs from 14 to 20 June 2010.

The 2007–13 strategy is based on the principle that “prevention is better than cure”. The aim is to put greater focus on precautionary measures, disease surveillance, controls and research, in order to reduce the incidence of animal diseases and minimise the impact of outbreaks when they do occur.

The theme for the EU Veterinary Week 2010 will be identification and traceability along the food chain.
