Animal welfare: key to delivering human health
Animal health and human health are inextricably connected.
The risk of zoonotic and food-borne disease has grown as farming methods have become more globalized and industrial farming practices – which often have profound negative animal welfare consequences – bring new challenges for disease control. It is clear that real improvements to human health can be achieved through the systematic integration of animal welfare principles into
livestock production systems, disease control measures and disaster preparedness and resilience planning.
