The WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Veterinary Public Health had invited speakers from Germany but also from the Netherlands to discuss about the situation in human and veterinary medicine, and more specific in companion animals, livestock and food. Ways of transmission, vectors, detection methods, preventative measures and risk assessments were discussed as well as some recent scientific data.
