Fighting animal and plant diseases: 154 million earmarked for 2018

The Commission decided to allocate about 154 million to the fight against animal diseases andinfectious diseases of animals that can be transmitted to humans as well as to support survey programmes for plant pests in 2018.

"Sums awarded today show that we are taking animal and plant health very seriously. They will help Member States' authorities to identify and act in a timely manner against outbreaks that could have a serious impact on animal and human health, economy and trade", said Vytenis Andriukaitis, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety.

In the animal health area, €141 million was awarded to support the implementation of the 134 approved programmes for eradication, control and surveillance of diseases such as bovine tuberculosis, rabies, bovine brucellosis, African swine fever and lumpy skin disease. In the plant health area, the EU has committed close to €13 million for 46 plant pest survey programmes in 24 Member States in 2018, with the greatest portion of the funds going towards the fight against Xylella fastidiosa, one of themost dangerous plant pests in the world.
