Topic: Developing strategies of One Health Surveillance
Date: 1 & 2 December 2022
How can we better understand the interconnectedness of human-, animal- and environmental health? How can we efficiently prepare for future pandemics and mitigate them? Which practical obstacles need to be considered when aiming at sustainable longitudinal One Health surveillance? These questions were in the center of attention at the One Health Surveillance Workshop, held in December 2022 in Greifswald.
During two very instructive and productive days, 35 participants from 14 research institutions in Germany, Ivory Coast, Central African Republic, and Denmark met to brainstorm, forge new alliances, and develop joint concepts. In 14 short impulse presentations, the international experts on a broad range of disciplines – from infectious diseases in humans and animals, to ecology, physiology, epidemiology, climate and even psychology and law – introduced their respective experiences with individual aspects of One Health surveillance.
