A healthier future for everyone relies on greater recognition of animal health expertise, urges AnimalhealthEurope secretary general, Roxane Feller:

  • The Covid-19 response has increased recognition of the importance of the One Health concept. Feller argues that we need to take advantage of this mindset and drive momentum for greater interdisciplinary co-operation
     
  • We are already recording environmental and human health benefits as a result of the animal health sector’s work in preserving antibiotics, cutting foodborne illness and enhancing environmental sustainability
     
  • Feller calls for increased veterinary oversight in infectious disease hotspots and greater dialogue on animal diseases at a global level as we emerge from the pandemic

“It is critical to use this pandemic to keep our governments aware of the critical role and capacity of veterinarians in tackling global and public in general in One Health and One Welfare efforts. Veterinary professionals around the world should feel proud of their ability to adapt and move forward to protect and care for animals and people despite these challenging times”
