Official launch of new programme creating world’s first global monitor of the effects of animal disease.

The World Health Organisation has joined The University of Liverpool in hosting the official launch of the Global Burden of Animal Diseases programme.

A webinar attended by more than 300 people saw the launch of the GBADs programme, which sets out to solve global challenges surrounding animal disease, caused by a lack of animal health data and an analysis system to provide systematic information on production losses, expenditure and wider economic impacts of animal disease and health problems.
