All about Porcine Health Management

Our goal is to promote competitive and sustainable pig production in Europe by creating and further developing common guidelines and legislation for porcine health management. With the aim to optimise professional standards leading to the highest possible animal health status. This will have a positive impact on food safety, public health and animal welfare in pork production.

Knowledge exchange

The EAPHM website provides a platform where important technical information gathered over many years and coming from different sources and countries, is stored.
