Prevention at the source is key in controlling (infectious) diseases that have a growing impact on humans, animals and their ecosystems. The 3rd International One Health Congress will therefore focus on how science can help in preventing emerging and re-emerging (infectious) diseases. Through a special Science – Policy interface policy makers and international organizations may translate the latest scientific advancements into preventive measures.
The scientific program will be organized in three sessions, each covering a specific range of topics in relation to Prevention at the source.
Pathogens and predisposing factors at the human-animal interface
Early response by clinician and veterinarian
Terrestrial, aquatic and aerial pathogens
Pathogens and predisposing factors in the food chain
Environmental pollution as a predisposing factor
Immuno-toxicology and infectious diseases
Antibiotic and antiviral resistance: medical vs veterinary drivers
Biodiversity and emerging pathogens
Novel technologies: from molecular to modelling
From zoonoses to pandemic
Ecological and evolutionary drivers of disease emergence
Climate and emerging pathogens
Ecosystems and wildlife in pathogen emergence
Comparing pathogenesis from natural to spill-over hosts
Human behavior and disease emergence in humans and animals
Demographics in humans and animals
Comparing drivers in different continents: from poverty reduction to global connectivity
Cost-benefits of intervention strategies
Rapid intervention strategies: from SARS to MERS
Intervention strategies and benefits of modelling
Ongoing international projects on the chain of emergence
