Congresso internacional – One Health

1 de Junho de 2021 @ 08:00 - 2 de Junho de 2021 @ 17:00

The One Health concept recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. One Health is not new, but it has become more important in recent years with more and more human pathogens found to be of animal origin. The importance of these diseases extends to human and animal health, but also to the social, environmental and economic impacts. Moreover, most emerging infectious diseases in humans are zoonoses such as Ebola virus disease, avian influenza, and Nipah virus. In this global health perspective, there is an urgent need to improve communication channels and increase joint efforts between different researchers and professionals from the environment-man-animal triad.

Taking into account that the health of humans, animals and the environment are interconnected and early response to emerging zoonotic pathogens requires a coordinated, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach, the International Conference “One Health: new insights and challenges of zoonotic diseases” will consider the factors that have changed interactions between people, animals and environment, and that will specifically affect the research and control of zoonotic diseases in the future, addressing five main topics, including a) Climatic changes: Emergent infections and Threats to Biodiversity; b) Sustainability in Animal Production – A challenge under the perspective of One Health; c) Impact of epidemic/pandemic zoonotic diseases: Keys issues and Lessons to learn; d) Wildlife emergent diseases: Threats to animal, human and environmental health; and e) Integrated surveillance systems of zoonotic diseases in Human and Veterinary Medicine.

The biggest challenge in the future is to respond to the emergence of zoonoses in the 21st century, which requires an increased recognition of the connection between Human and Veterinary Medicine, as well as the efficiency of limited and finite resources, both human and financial, but above all, the awareness that human and veterinary health is part of a global community and are inseparable.​
