Crossing borders: Moving Towards One Health
Bridging the gaps between human, animal, and environmental health sciences is a prerequisite for achieving the concept of “One Health”, a worldwide strategy to expand and implement interdisciplinary knowledge resulting in a healthier society. The goals of One Health are to increase the worldwide knowledgebase on prevention and surveillance of disease transmission and spread, merge medical and environmental research, facilitate and promote educational initiatives, develop cross-species diagnostic and treatment methods, and liaise with governments and policy makers to implement sustainable changes to our healthcare and ecosystem management.
In this session, we will cover emerging topics in the field of One Health, with a focus on the underlying collaborative efforts to be made in the years to come. We invite all stakeholders in this field to join the debate on barriers and opportunities for successful collaborations between academia, pharma, and governmental bodies, in order to tackle this worldwide effort jointly.
