The International Society for Economics and Social Sciences of Animal Health (ISESSAH) was formed at the final NEAT-meeting with the intention to carry on the work of NEAT and to include the field of social science in veterinary related issues.

ISESSAH aims to improve animal health and welfare policies, programme and projects through more nuanced use of concepts and tools available in economics and social science disciplines. In the process it will provide opportunities for animal health professionals globally to achieve wider societal benefits from animals in society.

One of the main activity of ISESSAH will be the organization of scientific meetings. The Inaugural Meeting of ISESSAH was held in March 2017 in Aviemore, Scotland. The last conference was held in July 2019 in Atlanta. The next one will take place virtually on 11-13th November 2020.


Details on the society organisation will be communicated soon. Currently the following persons are involved in the Board of ISESSAH:
