Safeguard the informal food market. Part two: meat

Safeguarding the informal food market helps to safeguard health and society. Watch Bassirou Bonfoh demonstrate this with the example of meat.

The last step addressed the example of milk to show that cultural and economic aspects have to be considered, when applying the One Health approach. In this video you discover that the same problems occur when dealing with meat.

Meat is the main product in festivals and ceremonies. Meat inspectors try to protect consumers, but often clandestine slaughter happens when inspectors are absent. Hazards are transmitted to people and this maintains the cycle of parasites.

Watch Bassirou Bonfoh talk about the involvement of stakeholders and the communication between sectors to indicate problems and to find solutions in a genuine One Health approach.
