General presentation

General presentation of the conference

Organising this One Health Inter-Regional European Conference comes as a natural consequence of the momentum that the One Health concept has gathered for the last couple of years. Romania is truly honoured to be part of the One Health movement and firmly believes that due to its half of century experience in comparative medicine and not only, will have a positive impact on the One Health trajectory.

We invite all professions linked to One Health to attend this Conference, because One Health is best defined with the phrase “It’s all connected!”

The conference will be organised under the auspices of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) by close collaboration of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences and the One Health New Medical Concept Association in Romania.
