Ensuring Health & Sustainability in Europe: Doctors and Veterinarians emphasize “prevention is better than cure”

Submitted by ohsadmin

European doctors and veterinarians, supported by the Greek Presidency of the Council to the EU and the EU Commission, organise this event on the occasion of the World Health Day. We aim at bringing together stakeholders, active in the medical and veterinary sector, to discuss on how we can work collaboratively in a One-Health approach.

More precisely the event will focus on the benefit coming from the implementation of good health management in practice, both in terms of health and welfare, as well as, of financial sustainability. The purpose is to highlight the importance of coordinating actions in both sectors via a One-Health approach, with a particular focus on zoonotic diseases. Further to this it will also look into the role of the medical and veterinary profession in assuring these matters and educating the society.

An open dialogue between the medical and the veterinary profession will complete the works of the conference and a cocktail reception will follow immediately after the official closing by the Greek Presidency.

You are kindly informed that the participation cost is 155 € pp and covers reception, coffee breaks and attached material.

Venue: International Auditorium, Boulevard Roi Albert II 5, Brussels, Belgium
