This seminar on epidemiology of rabies and brucellosis in BiH, organized in cooperation with the Veterinary Office of BiH as the lead project beneficiary institution, brought together veterinarians and epidemiologists in the field of public health, inspectors, laboratory specialists and other technical experts involved in the control and monitoring of rabies and brucellosis in BiH. Participants also discussed about other zoonoses - infectious diseases, common for humans  and some animal species which can be transmitted from animals to humans and vice versa, as an important field in which the close cooperation between doctors and veterinarians is  necessary.

"One Health" approach is a joint effort of multiple disciplines that work together at the local, national and global levels to achieve optimal health of humans, animals and the environment. A guest lecturer, prof. dr Dejan Krnjaić from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Belgrade, spoke about this approach and about pets as a possible source of infection a humans.
