Titleimage: Veterinary Public Health Institute

Veterinary Public Health (VPH), a relatively new discipline within veterinary medicine, in recent years substantially gained in importance in the context of the detection, control and prevention of animal diseases and animal welfare-related events. Diseases transmitted directly or through products of animal origin (food) to humans (zoonoses) are an additional area of VPH relevance - with almost 70 % of all newly emerging human diseases originating from animals. Within the VPH Institute selected topics will be addressed within own research projects, research support (consulting) and teaching.

Since 2011, the division of Animal Welfare is a separate part of the VPHI.
