COVID-19 Update

As of 1 February 2022, Denmark has removed all COVID-19 restrictions. Consequently, there are no longer restrictions on, e.g., the number of people that can gather for a meeting or conference, no mandatory masks, and no COVID-19 passport requirements. People are still encouraged to remember good habits, though.  COVID-19 has been declared a non-critical disease in Denmark. This is based on low hospitalisation numbers and high vaccination numbers.  

Consequently, there are no entry/travel restrictions into Denmark.

4th International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance - Bridging Science and Policy

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 4th International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance (ICAHS4), which will be held 3-5 May 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark. You will join approximately 300 other participants, mainly authority representatives, researchers, veterinarians and other stakeholders from all over the world.

The International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance is a truly unique event creating a forum for the interface between science, food production and policy. The key to effective surveillance that supports animal health, food safety and public health is to bring together scientists, food production representatives and policy makers to understand what is needed and how it can be done with benefits for everyone.

To enable this, ICAHS 4 in Copenhagen will be organised by a consortium of five local partners representing policy, food production and science. Combined with the efficiency and easy access to Copenhagen, we believe that the ICAHS conference placed in Copenhagen will attract a large number of delegates and become an inspiring event that will improve surveillance internationally.

  • Copenhagen is easily accessible as a main hub in Northern Europe. The result will be a large ICAHS4 - affordable and accessible for all.
  • Denmark is at the forefront of One Health Surveillance and ICAHS4 in Copenhagen is an ideal opportunity to share decades of experiences on One Health Surveillance.
  • Partnership surveillance between government, industry, academia, practitioners and multiple other stakeholders is a tradition in Denmark and a cornerstone in The Danish Way of working.
  • Danish ‘HYGGE’ is world famous and very hip ….and with good reason. Come to Denmark and find out what the fuss is all about.

We hope you will join us in Copenhagen!
