CIHEAM Zaragoza and Spain’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA) organize the online advanced course “One Health approach to early detection and rapid response in the face of emerging and re-emerging zoonoses” next 15-24 March 2021.

Recent epidemic events such as SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 are putting us under pressure, reminding us of the importance of this multidisciplinary approach at all levels. Application of the One Health concept is now more necessary than ever to tackle new and emerging epidemics. Providing a truly applied approach, the course offers an insight on the One Health concept in the context of emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases (EZD), through online live sessions, case studies and discussions. Participants learn about the implementation and evaluation of this approach, the design of surveillance programmes and contingency plans for emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases (EZD), as well as the importance of communication strategies. Besides, the course is a unique opportunity to meet and network with professionals from all over the world who are working in animal health or food safety and are involved or interested in the diverse strategies to prevent and cope with zoonosis.

Dates: 15-24 March 2021.

Organizers: CIHEAM Zaragoza and MAPA

Application deadline: 1 February 2021
