RIVM Report 330214002
This report describes the results of the emerging zoonoses programme (EmZoo). The ultimate objective of EmZoo was to develop a blueprint for an effective early warning and signalling system in the Netherlands for threats of relevance to both human and veterinary health. To reach this aim, the collaborative effort of key institutes involved in veterinary and public health in the Netherlands was requested. A consortium consisting in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Utrecht (UU), the Central Veterinary Institute (CVI) of Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Animal Health Service (GD) and the Centre for Infectious Disease Control (CIb), RIVM, was established and collaborated in eight projects.
