Animal Health

The Animal Health Division with its 18 research units, its 3 experimental units and its 1,000 staff, including more than 300 scientists,  is a scientific community dedicated to animal health and veterinary public health.

Preventing and controlling farm animal diseases, limiting zoonoses and infectious risks, informing public decision-making in the field of veterinary public health... these are some of the challenges that the Animal Health Division must meet in close collaboration with its scientific or professional partners.

Reducing antibiotic use in the livestock industry

Reducing the use of antibiotics in agriculture is essential to limit the occurrence and risks of propagation of multiresistant bacteria. To do so, public awareness and an evolution of practices in a One Health approach are necessary. INRA is multiplying initiatives aimed at associating all scientific disciplines around joint research projects, while involving all the players of the agricultural world.
