Controls are essential to ensure safe food. | © Veterinarians without Borders

In Austria, the quality standards for food are very high. Inspections along the whole supply chain are required by law. In developing countries, such as in Africa, controls are often inadequate, public awareness is low and the need for information is high.

Rabies is still one of the most dangerous viral infectious diseases in much of the world and is fatal without exception. Around 99 % of all known rabies cases are due to the bite of an infected dog. Therefore, vaccinating dogs is one of the most effective measures to protect animals and humans equally from rabies.

Melamine is a white, odourless powder used, among other things, for the production of plastic and adhesives.
