Prevention saves lives, livelihoods and money

Billions of dollars could be saved by stepping up prevention and control of high impact animal diseases, plant pests and diseases and food safety incidents, some of which pose a direct or indirect threat to human health and the environment.

These threats invariably impact negatively people’s livelihoods, food security and economic development:

  • Animal health
  • Plant protection
  • Food safety.
