Biosecurity SA (under Primary Industries and Regions SA)
There are a number of environmental factors which protect or promote population health and wellbeing, including water quality, food safety, waste disposal, immunisation, and the control of communicable diseases. Biosecurity SA's core business is to manage the risks and potential harm to the South Australian community, environment, and economy from pests and diseases.
This agreement enhances collaboration through the Zoonoses Working Group, supporting joint action in relation to the interface between human, animal and environmental health (‘One Health’). In doing so, this partnership provides a mechanism for the protection of the community against biosecurity related threats.
