The Kennel Club has a comprehensive resource to help guide kennel clubs in creating a health improvement strategy for their breed. It is available online: The-Kennel-Club-Breed-Health-Improvement-Strategy: -A-Step-by-Step-Guide.
From the Guide: "AIMS
This guide explains the benefits, purpose, and principles of developing a
Breed Health Improvement Strategy. It is designed to provide a practical
guide for Breed Health Coordinators and Clubs/Councils to help them assess
and enhance their current approaches for improving their breed’s health."
"A BREED HEALTH IMPROVEMENT STRATEGY IS HOW A BREED MAKES CONTINUOUS HEALTH IMPROVEMENT A REALITY.
TIP: A Breed Health Improvement Strategy is much broader than a plan for addressing a particular health issue (e.g. a single disease or condition) in a breed."
