Animal Health and Welfare Strategy for Great Britain
The Animal Health and Welfare Strategy for Great Britain was launched in June 2004. The 10-year Strategy:
- acknowledges the need to take a more strategic approach to the management of activities undertaken by Government and others; and
- highlights the importance of a partnership approach.
The Strategy aims to improve:
- the health and welfare of kept animals;
- protect the public from animal diseases; and
- protect the economic and social well being of people and the environment
It sets out a vision for animal health and welfare in Great Britain, showing where we want to be in 2014. This is a strong challenge for everyone involved and the Strategy contains important guiding principles showing what needs to be done.
