The new Animal Health Strategy (2007-2013): “prevention is better than cure” - Action plan
The European Commission adopted a Communication laying down the Action Plan for the implementation of the EU's animal health strategy on 10 September 2008 (COM(2008) 545 final). The Action Plan contains an overview and summary of the key actions.
A programming document for the Strategy was also agreed. That contains all the actions and their relevant details such as milestones marking important steps within the actions, organisations involved and orientative date for the completion of each action.
The information based on the programming document and presented under the different pillars below is updated regularly to enable any interested person, organisation or other parties to follow the progress of the different activities.
