SCHOOL'S HEALTH PREVENTION
Bio-Crime project organised a series of health prevention activities for more than 700 children in 6 countries. Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Germany, Mauritius and Japan school's have been involved.
Zoonoses: diseases that are transmitted from animals to humans are defined as zoonoses. The spread of these diseases in the human population is often linked to human activity, and the illegal trade of pet animals is an important route of transmission of zoonoses. In fact, animals bought on the black market may come from infected areas, and not be checked from the health point of view. Families with children are often the final buyers of pets coming from the illegal market. Concern about pathogen transmission between animals and humans is an important public health consideration. The risk of zoonotic transmission is real, but prevention strategies will reduce the potential for transmission.
