... Online Seminar: "Can One Health Policy prevent future pandemics?" - Tuesday 26. October 2021 (16h-17.30h CEST)

Invitation to an online workshop

Can "One Health" Policy prevent future pandemics?

Tuesday 26th of October 2021, 4 pm. to 5.30 pm. CEST

Habitat and biodiversity losses increase globally. A number of researchers today think that it is actually humanity’s destruction of biodiversity that creates the conditions for new viruses and diseases. A relatively new discipline, Planetary or One Health, is emerging. It focuses on the increasingly visible connections between the wellbeing of humans, other living things and entire ecosystems. Diseases that have crossed into humans include Lassa fever, which was first identified in Nigeria; Nipah from Malaysia; and Sars from China. Some, like Zika and West Nile virus, which emerged in Africa, have mutated and become established on other continents. These so-called zoonotic diseases are linked to environmental change and human behaviour.

What are the impacts of One Health on the global social economy?

Which role can One Health play in preventing and controlling future pandemics?

How can a comprehensive One Health Approach contribute to achieving the SDGs?

Our panelists will discuss these issues during our digital workshop
“Can One Health Policy prevent future pandemics?”
