The report 'Emerging zoonoses' of the Health Council of the Netherlands was written on request from the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport. It gives an expert view on how to anticipate zoonoses that could emerge in the near future by addressing questions regarding risk assessment, prevention, early detection, control and communication. Further emphasis in the report is given to developments within the European Union (EU). The report had to serve as the basis for a European policy conference on 16 and 17 September 2004 during the Dutch presidency of the EU. Some important developments announced by the Minister are: establishment of a National Centre for Infectious Diseases to advise the Minister and coordinate crisis control during outbreaks, measures to strengthen the regional structure of public health in the Netherlands, and a budget for the strengthening of public health research.
