EU Veterinary Week 2009
28. 9. - 4. 10. 2009, Brusel
The Health and Consumers Directorate-General of the European Commission will organise the second edition of the EU Veterinary Week from 28 September to 4 October 2009 in partnership with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE).
The week intends to promote the concepts of partnership and communication, the two key underlying principles of the new Animal Health Strategy for the European Union (2007-2013) where „Prevention is better than cure“.
The week will open with a high level conference in Brussels on 28 September, entitled „Animals+Humans=One health“. The key message of the conference will be that animal diseases are having an increasing impact on public health and that therefore high standards of animal health have a positive impact on human health and consumer wellbeing.
