Event Details:

Is Food really Safe in the EU, and do consumers perceive it to be Safe?

The outbreaks of SARS and avian influenza, antimicrobial resistance and Bovine Spon-giform Encephalopathy (BSE) highlighted the need to mitigate emerging health risks using a One Health approach, as these are multifactorial diseases involving different disciplines and thus different perspectives.

During the 21st century, challenging global health threats have emerged, linked to zoonotic and (re)emerging infectious diseases (e.g. COVID-19, Ebola, MERS), climate change and environmental sustainability. These health threats are complex and cannot be solved by one sector alone. A comprehensive strategy and transdisciplinary collaboration on all aspects of health for people, animals and the environment is required, also referred to as the One Health approach.





Remarks:
Free admission, all are welcome.
