Tiergesundheit und Tierschutz

The Panel on Animal Health and Welfare (AHAW) provides scientific advice on all aspects of animal diseases and animal welfare. Its work chiefly concerns food producing animals, including fish.

AHAW Panel Members are scientists from across Europe with expertise in:

  • Risk assessment, quantitative risk assessment, modelling
  • Microbiology and pathology (applied to infectious diseases of food-producing animals, including aquatic animals)
  • Epidemiology
  • Animal welfare
  • Animal production (husbandry, housing and management, animal transport and stunning and killing of animals)

Networks

Was sind die Netzwerke der EFSA?

Die Netzwerke der EFSA bestehen aus auf nationaler Ebene benannten Organisationen der EU-Mitgliedstaaten, die über Fachwissen in den vom Netzwerk abgedeckten Fachbereichen verfügen. Vertreter der Kommission und anderer Organisationen (auch von außerhalb der EU), die über besonderes Fachwissen verfügen, können ebenfalls zur Teilnahme an der Arbeit der EFSA-Netzwerke eingeladen werden.

Die Netzwerke werden von der EFSA geleitet und von den zuständigen EFSA-Referaten unterstützt. Ihr Ziel ist es, die wissenschaftliche Zusammenarbeit im Rahmen des Auftrags der EFSA durch Folgendes zu erleichtern:

Network on Veterinary Entomology

The Network on Veterinary Entomology (NVE) aims to strengthen collaboration and exchange of information among involved stakeholders to support the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases (VBDs) in the Member States (MS) of the EU and in neighbouring countries. Given that VBDs require a one-health approach in their prevention and control, the network will work closely together with the Operational Contact Points (OCPs), nominated by the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC), representing the entomologists working in the human public health sector. Together they will constitute the One-Health VectorNet Entomological Network (OHVEN).

Risk assessment in animal health and welfare

EFSA networks with Member States to build a mutual understanding of risk assessment principles in the area of animal health and welfare, to promote harmonisation of animal health and welfare risk assessment practices and methodologies and to reduce the duplication of activities by identifying and sharing current and upcoming priorities.
