About the Meeting

Objectives of the meeting

Diagnostics are an essential tool to ensure the health of domestic and wild animals for both endemic and emerging diseases. They allow animal health professionals to understand and manage the general health status of domestic animals. They are also important tools to support public health initiatives in the case of zoonotic disease control. The meeting will provide an overview of existing systems and approaches / strategies for the use of diagnostics and to discuss the currently available diagnostics. The advantages / benefits and disadvantages / gaps of the current methods and methodologies will be identified and discussed. Proposals on how to increase the quality, efficacy, and utility of the existing strategies and methods and those under development will be made.
