On 14 April, the State Food ad Veterinary Service has signed a cooperation agreement with the Centre for Communicable Diseases and AIDS under the Ministry of Health. This is the first time that such an agreement has been signed although the two institutions have been successfully cooperating on the issues of foodborne and waterborne zoonoses and infectious diseases since the beginning of the independence of Lithuania.

The objective of the agreement is the consolidation and promotion of cooperation between specialists, organisation and implementation of prophylactic and preventive measures, planning specific actions in the event of outbreaks of diseases or food poisoning.

Although the number of cases of foodborne infectious diseases has been annually decreasing in Lithuania it still remains an acute problem of public health. In 2010–2011, more than 20 outbreaks of this kind were recorded annually with the total number of 375 persons infected, while in 2012 – 14 outbreaks, in 2013 – 11 outbreaks were recorded with the number of 137 and 109 persons infected accordingly. The statistics of several years shows that nearly 80 % of all the outbreaks of food poisoning in our country are caused by bacteria of the genus Salmonella.
