More than 60% of human infectious diseases have an animal origin. Join us to explore, learn and share with international zoonoses research experts on the causes and responses to animal-human transmission.


Take part in a rich and intellectually stimulating program of lectures, discussions and debates ranging from the molecular to the global level, from deadly pathogens to health systems, from patients to populations and their socio-economic environments.

 

  • Disease elimination strategies
  • Syndromic surveillance and response
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Molecular epidemiology
  • Clinical research
  • Patient management
  • Control and intervention financing
