Diseases and health threats

In an increasingly interconnected world, both human and animals are increasingly threatened by communicable diseases and health threats, including zoonoses, as evidenced by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Key challenges such as increasing antibiotic resistance, climate change, and emerging and re-emerging diseases, call for global and European systems to support surveillance and early warning. They also call for multidisciplinary research and multi-sectorial cooperation.

FEAM has supported a One Health approach to address these challenges by connecting research and supporting cooperation between human and animal health, and environmental research. One Health calls for the integration of data and research coming from different disciplines (including the biomedical and social sciences). It also calls for strengthening cooperation between different sectors (e.g. animal and human health, agriculture, environment).
