15-18 March 2015, Third International One Health Conference 2015 "Prevention at the Source," Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The 3rd International One Health Congress brings science and policy together aiming at the early recognition and control of emerging (infectious) diseases, now and in the years to come. Prevention at the source is key in controlling (infectious) diseases that have a growing impact on humans, animals and their ecosystems.
This conference brings together the lead scientists in the field of ''ONE HEALTH" research, to act as chair persons and keynote speakers. They range from veterinary Nobel laureate to fundamental and translational/clinical scientists, working in all the relevant medical, veterinary, ecological, and evolutionary fields of 'ONE HEALTH'. The program is the result of in depth discussions by a broad scientific advisory board (SAB) virtually covering the whole field of 'ONE HEALTH'. Round-tables on ongoing crises, including the current Ebola virus and MERS-coronavirus epidemics, will be among the highlights of this uniquely interactive and cutting edge program.
