This unique project brings together 22 partners from the public, industrial and private research from 11 different countries .

ProHealth : minimize losses in livestock
According to forecasts by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization ( FAO) , the need for animal protein should increase by 50 % over the next 40 years. Sustainable development will be an essential principle to deal with this global demand of safe and quality food at an affordable price , while optimizing the use of natural resources. According to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE ), 30 % of the production of animal products is currently lost due to disease, infectious or not , at the farm , and this both at European level or worldwide. ProHealth aims to minimize these losses , that if they remained unresolved , would lessen our ability to meet the demand for animal protein , while compromising the health and welfare of animals .
This project focuses on exploring new ways to improve animal health , quality of production and limit its impact on the environment while maintaining the profitability of farms and industries.
