UK Zoonoses, Animal Diseases and Infections Group

UKZADI advises on important trends and observations which impact on animal and public health, including where necessary preventative and remedial action.

Role of the group

The UK Zoonoses, Animal Diseases and Infections (UKZADI) Group is an independent committee made up of experts from across the agricultural and public health departments.

We advise, as appropriate, the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Veterinary Officer, Department of Health (DH) in England, Welsh government, Scottish government (SG), Department for Agricultural and Rural Development Northern Ireland (DARDNI) and Food Standards Agency (FSA) on important trends and observations which impact on animal and public health, including where necessary preventative and remedial action.

Our role is also to provide a strategic overview to ensure overall co-ordination of public health action at the UK, national and local level with regard to existing and emerging zoonotic infections and trends in antimicrobial resistance.
