COVID-19 has clearly shown why One Health, the core of which is the recognition of the existential interconnectedness of humans, animals and their shared environment, is key to ensuring the healthy and sustainable future of the planet. 
 
We all know that there has been, and continues to be, a significant increase in the emergence of infectious agents and in the potential risk of new pandemics, as exemplified by the emergence and spread of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2 has also clearly demonstrated that a previously unknown pathogen can emerge from a wildlife source at any time in any place and without warning, threatening the health, well-being and economies of all societies. There is therefore a clear need for countries to have the capability and capacity to maintain an effective alert and response system to detect and quickly react to outbreaks of international concern, and to share information about such outbreaks rapidly and transparently.
Responding to pandemic threats requires global cooperation and global participation. Combined with the growing globalization of health risks and the importance of the human-animal interface in the evolution and emergence of pathogens, the only solution is a One Health approach. 

What are the risks of the animal-human interface? And what is the potential for cross-species transmission?

How to prepare for the future pandemics?

What is the association of zoonotic viruses with illegal imported wildlife?

What are the global health security aspects of the novel coronavirus?

What are the risks of novel pandemic viruses as bio-weapons?

The One Health Platform will be organising 2 webinars to deal with these questions and discuss with the stakeholders of the One Health Community.

Participation at the event is FREE OF CHARGE.

REGISTER NOW FOR OUR FIRST WEBINAR ON 13 JULY REGISTER NOW FOR OUR SECOND WEBINAR ON 16 JULY
