It provides a liaison with USAHA to livestock producers and handlers, private and public veterinarians and their organizations and agencies. It will encourage increased coordination among agriculture, wildlife and public health agencies in the detection, identification, prevention, control, and eradication of infectious and non-infectious diseases and conditions affecting animals and the common environment of animals and humans. With emphasis on facilitating communication and data sharing between the animal and human health communities to recognize emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases.

Objectives:

  1. Establish a forum for all zoonotic diseases, both existing and emerging problems. Create Zoonotic Subcommittees as needed.
  2. Objectives related to Rabies are:
    • to maintain an awareness of the animal rabies situation, primarily in North America but other portions of the world as well
    • to assess its impact on all animals including livestock, wildlife, pets, and humans
    • to monitor regulatory programs of various public and animal health agencies in North America
    • to develop program recommendations
    • to share information on new technologies pertaining to rabies
  3. Assist in maintaining and developing healthy animal populations by improving the environmental quality through information for handling of hazardous wastes, recycling, disinfection in management and production.
  4. Review and recommend programs as a committee or in conjunction with other committees in reducing and preventing disease agent transmission through foods or feeds of animal or poultry origin intended for consumption.
  5. Promote education and training initiatives for livestock producers and handlers, and private and public practitioners in defining their role in maintaining and enhancing the public's health and environmental quality.
