What we do

Animal Health Australia coordinates and manages more than 60 national projects relating to animal biosecurity, health and welfare on behalf of its Members, the Australian Government, state and territory governments and the peak national councils of Australia’s livestock industries and service providers.

Facilitating effective partnerships

We work to:

  • improve Australia’s animal health policy and practice by building capacity for emergency animal disease (EAD) preparedness
  • ensure that Australia’s livestock health systems support productivity, competitive advantages and preferred market access
  • ensure that animal health programs help to protect human health, the environment and recreational activities
  • manage nationally agreed animal health programs.

Working together in strong partnerships leverages Members’ investments and maximises the return for all by achieving a shared commitment; to enhance the resilience and integrity of the national animal health system.
