The vision of EUP AH&W is to provide society with a sustainable livestock production sector where infectious animal diseases are prevented and controlled with appropriate means,
antimicrobials are used prudently, and animal welfare is respected in every phase of the production process, until death.’
Due to the close link between animal health, animal welfare and human well-being, the
One Health-One Welfare perspective will take a prominent place in the EUP AH&W.

AU is responsible for Work Package 3: Joint Initiatives & Integration, which includes coordinating 17 Set of Activities (SOA's):
