Welcome to AnimalhealthEurope News

Welcome to the very first edition of AnimalhealthEurope News!

As you may have heard, this year we celebrated 30 years of representing the animal health industry in Europe and at our gala dinner to celebrate this milestone we launched our new name: AnimalhealthEurope

As we toasted Europe’s great progress in managing and preventing animal disease, and ensuring a safe and sustainable food supply, we launched our new strategy promoting more intergrated One Health approaches to today's health challenges. You can hear more about what this involves and what we discussed at our conference on 'One Health: More than a buzzword?' in the video report below.

One Health - What do we mean?

In the ongoing quest to improve human health, the role of animal medicines in delivering healthy animals is recognised as an equal part of the One Health triad comprising human, animal and environmental health.


‘One Health’ policies and strategies, strongly encouraged by the animal health sector, mean that different disciplines work collaboratively on local, national and global levels to ensure that humans, animals and the environment can benefit from optimal health.

When it comes to the many challenges facing us today - disease outbreaks affecting production in Europe, illnesses that can jump from animal to man, foodborne sickness, and antibiotic resistance - One Health is our way of addressing this challenge by playing a positive and active role. Encouraging collaboration between sectors can help shape health policies to better respond to these challenges, an approach that the European Commission is actively promoting within the EU.
