A direct access to scientific research and debates on zoonoses transmitted by companion animals

CALLISTO - Companion Animals multisectoriaL interprofessionaL Interdisciplinary Strategic Think tank On zoonoses presents the www.callistoproject.eu website. CALLISTO is an international research project financed by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission and implemented by an international consortium of research institutes, universities and veterinary associations. This project aims at providing an overview of the current situation, with regard to the role of companion animals as a source of infectious diseases for people and livestock. During a three years cycle, CALLISTO will identify knowledge and technology gaps for the most important zoonoses associated with keeping companion animals, and it will propose targeted actions to prevent and reduce the health risks for both humans and livestock.
