Covid 19 has had a devastating effect on the world - and is a stark reminder of the impact of zoonoses in transferring from animal to human populations.
About 60 percent of all human diseases are zoonotic in nature, the majority of these stemming from wildlife. Can combat of viruses in the veterinary world serve as a step forward in tackling them in human populations? What can human healthcare learn from veterinary virology?
The European Network of Agricultural Journalists is organising a journalistic webinar about this topic on Friday June 4th at 13.00 h (Central European Time), when three excellent speakers will present their vision.
Roxane Feller, secretary general of AnimalhealthEurope: 'How One Health collaboration can help prevent the next pandemic'
Hans Nauwynck, professor at Ghent University, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Laboratory of Virology: ‘Successful control of viral diseases in animals, excellent examples for human’
Rens van Dobbenburgh, president of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe
The webinar will be moderated by Damien O’Reilly, radio journalist with Ireland's RTE.
The webinar is exclusive for members of the guilds and associations of ENAJ and - on this occasion - the global organisation IFAJ. It will last about 75 minutes. Questions are invited. The webinar language is English. There is no translation.
