Carla Gomes

Pig HealthCheck Programme Manager, Animal Health Ireland

I am a veterinary epidemiologist working as manager in a programme co-funded by government and industry related with pig health and welfare, and public health in Ireland. I have worked in the past as a veterinary epidemiologist researcher in SRUC. My research interests are in data-driven decisions to improve animal health and welfare.

Carla will deliver two sessions:

  • Actual and future challenges and needs from the national perspective. Progress up to date on Salmonella controls in the EU
  • Farm interventions: Case study 4: Pre-harvest interventions in different European countries: Campylobacter and Salmonella case (role of Competent Authorities and science)

I hope I can motivate you to look at the different interventions applied at EU level for controlling Salmonella and Campylobacter.
