This study, commissioned by the Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs upon request of the Committee on Petitions, finds out that EU animal welfare policy and legislation has had much positive influence in the world, on the image of the EU as well as helping animals. However, most kinds of animals kept in the EU are not covered by legislation, including some of the worst animal welfare problems, so a general animal welfare law and specific laws on several species are needed. Animal sentience and welfare should be mentioned, using accurate scientific terminology, in many trade-related laws as well as in animal-specific laws.

Part 1 reviews the Turkish food and drink industry, the organisations and controls involved in food safety, food safety concerns, the risk management and risk communication of animal diseases and finally the status of the preparation of Turkey against the acquis in the area of food safety. Part 2 shows that the Health status in Turkey has improved over the last decade, and for many health indicators Turkey has come closer to average EU levels. Since 2003, the Turkish government has implemented a major reform programme to improve healthcare. These reforms appear to have played a role in the improvements in health status. Despite the reforms, the health care system faces ongoing challenges including: a lack of qualified healthcare staff and facilities, and regional disparities in access to and uptake of health services.
