The Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (hereafter referred to as FVE) and the Standing Committee of  European Doctors (hereafter referring as CPME) have come together to collaborate and to jointly act in  recognition of the concept of ‘One Health’. FVE and CPME (hereafter referred as “partners”) recognise the benefits of a ‘One Health’ concept and commit themselves to future cooperation.

A first  memorandum between CPME and FVE focused on fighting antimicrobial resistance and was agreed in January 2013 and updated in November 2015. Over these years, the partners have run and implemented several joint activities that included joint advocacy, scientific debates, raising awareness of  all kind of the healthcare professionals and the general public on the topics stated in the joint  declaration.
