Abstract

The poster reports the result of an European survey concerning the role of Economics in Veterinary Faculty courses, veterinary profession and practice and the result of a the literature review currently available on Animal Health Economics. The survey and the literature review are activities of the ERASMUS LLP funded programme "Networking to enhance the use of economics in animal health education, research and policy-making in Europe and beyond" (NEAT, web site: www.neat-network.eu).The results suggest that: EAH tends to focus on basic economics, there seems to be some inconsistency in both training and literature highlighting the need for a more systematic approach; the existence of limited economic information on many diseases. Finally survey respondents were concerned about the limited education on decision making and assessing impacts of animal diseases. An increasing importance to the use of EAH in the future was anticipated. This would motivate the development of teaching methods and materials which strengthen the understanding of animal health problems as economic problems
