What is veterinary public health?

Veterinary public health is defined by the World Health Organisation as

the sum of all contributions to the physical, mental and social well-being of humans through an understanding and application of veterinary science.

Veterinary public health consulting requires an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, research and communication, which is essential for the improvement of human health in a significant and sustainable manner.

Veterinary public health, as a relatively new discipline within veterinary medicine, substantially gained in importance in the context of the detection, control and prevention of animal diseases and animal welfare-related events. Diseases transmitted directly or through products of animal origin (food) to humans (zoonoses) are an additional area of VPH relevance – with almost 70 % of all newly emerging human diseases originating from animals.

The FAO recognises the food chain approach as an important step forward to ensure food safety from production up to consumption. This approach requires the commitment of all players in the food chain, involving producers, traders, processors, distributors, competent authorities as well as consumers.
