National and International Cooperation

As a leading expert organisation, the Division of Animal Health sees itself as an institution providing advice and services for veterinary-diagnostic and epidemiological issues.

The Division consults the relevant Ministry (BMG), assists in the conducting of surveillance programmes for health surveillance in livestock and in the development of norms and standards. We work on an interdisciplinary basis and cooperate with international and national partner institutes to fulfil this mission.
