United on behalf of a better, sustainable World

As STOR’s Scientific Director, I’m pleased to highlight our role within REMESA, facilitating collaboration among 15 Mediterranean countries to enhance animal disease surveillance and control. Our mission is to harmonize strategies against health threats and maintain a proactive stance in the Mediterranean region.

We are driven to create a seamless network for disease surveillance and control, aiming for proactive crisis response in the Mediterranean. We convene twice a year at the Joint Permanent Committee (JPC) to discuss the health of varied animal species, tackling infectious diseases, climate impacts, and productivity. Our collective efforts prioritize disease prevalence and project implementation, fostering regional animal health and ecosystem well-being.

Importance of Animal Health

Animal health is integral to our ecosystem and human society. Healthy animals contribute to the balance of natural ecosystems and to human livelihoods through agriculture, companionship, and more.

Preventing and controlling animal diseases is not just about animal welfare—it’s about sustaining biodiversity, supporting food security, and preventing zoonotic diseases that can impact human health. By investing in animal health, we invest in our planet’s future.

One Health Concept

The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals, and the environment.

It recognizes the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and interdependent. This approach is essential for preventing and fighting diseases at the human-animal-environment interface, including emerging health threats, like zoonotic diseases.
