HISTORY

1998:

The Human Health Project Team (HHPT) was formed.

1999:

The Animal Health Project Team (AHPT) was formed.

2003:

The AHPT presented their final report and recommendations to the CASA Board at the March Board meeting. The AHPT recommendations were accepted by the board, including a recommendation for the establishment of the Human and Animal Health Team (HAHT).

2004:

At the March CASA Board meeting, HAHT Terms of Reference were approved.

2007:

At the September CASA Board meeting, HAHT presented the Human and Animal Health Team Final Report to the CASA Board. The report recommended that the team be disbanded, although not all outstanding recommendations were complete. The government caucus asked for more time to determine if there were other options to address the outstanding recommendations, and the Board chose not to disband the team.

2012-13:

HAHT met to review the original goals and intent of the team, ongoing work that may address the outstanding recommendations, and what, if any, would be the appropriate role for CASA in ongoing work. The team agreed by consensus that the 2007 recommendation to disband HAHT should be forwarded to the CASA Board for a final decision.

2013:

At the December CASA Board meeting, HAHT presented the Human and Animal Health Team Final Report, which recommended that the team be disbanded, and provided some additional advice to the Board on next steps. The Board agreed by consensus to disband HAHT, and made amendments to the advice from the team prior to approving it.
