'The pressure cooker environment - preventing the next pandemic'
The One Health SIG within PHAA has brought together global leaders in One Health to discuss the emergence of SARS coronavirus and association with changing climates and biodiversity. Six out of every ten known emerging infectious diseases originate in animals. Increasing trade and travel due to globalisation enable rapid worldwide spread of these diseases as we are experiencing with COVID-19. Climate change acts as both a facilitator and driver of disease emergence by disruption of wild ecosystems, evidenced by changes in distribution of pathogens and their vectors. Disease spill-over events from animals are happening with greater frequency making effective One Health frameworks urgently required to prevent the next pandemic.
This webinar is being held as a satellite event to the 2020 Australian Public Health Conference, however all PHAA members and non-members are invited to attend.
