Pandemic! A one health view of emerging infectious diseases - What veterinary sciences can contribute

 

New diseases are continually emerging. A conservative estimate is that there is one new human disease every eight months, with even more emerging in animals. Emerging diseases are a threats for mankind and new ways are needed for their prevention and control. Moreover, is it becoming clear with the COVID-19 human pandemic, such emergencies also impact negatively on the control of animal diseases generally. The proposed discussion will focus on the following topics:

• COVID-19 as a multidisciplinary research accelerator for animal health;

• Overview on the epidemiological background of Coronaviruses and other pandemic agents and the progress of technology in delivering improved surveillance and control of the associated diseases;

• How to give direction to the future Strategic Research Agendas (SRAs) for veterinary science to improve preparedness and cope with novel and re-emerging diseases.
