The 32 nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in Ýstanbul 13th to 17th of September, 2015 - Tuesday, March 10, 2015

WORLD VETERINARY CONGRESS, ÝSTANBUL - 2015

 

“…The 32nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in Istanbul 13th to 17th of September, 2015 organized by Turkish Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) …

As we all know that, veterinarians play a leading role for performing disease surveillance of specific zoonoses and therefore, they are central to the human–animal relationship in terms of one health concept. So that, the risks regardless of whether they are threaten animals, humans or both, can be prevented at their source in animals.

Within the scope of one health concept, all necessary measures are needed to be taken for control and eradication of animal diseases, also here in Turkey. While speaking about the measures, the measures like; programmed and strategic vaccination, quarantine, test applications, cleaning and disinfection, slaughtering of animals, control of animal movements, and closure of the inappropriate livestock markets can be given as examples. At this point, I should add that, Turkey has already succeeded to eradicate some animal diseases and the efforts continue to achieve the same success for widely distributed animal diseases.

Congress Chairman

International Conference on the Politics and Ethics of Infection

“The Politics and Ethics of Infection conference will showcase cutting edge and multidisciplinary research in how we think about and respond to the threat of infectious disease. From information surveillance to quarantine, from the of security to communities of resistance, researchers will explore how economic, ecological, political, community-based and institutional contexts generate and structure the spread and the control of infectious diseases, and the ethical concerns and consequences thereof. Research will be presented in streams around surveillance, intensification and resistance, One Health, communication, research, migration and movement, settings, communities and histories. ...

One Health for the Real World: zoonoses, ecosystems and wellbeing

 

 

 

 

 

 

A high-level symposium for policymakers, practitioners and researchers

 

 17-18 March 2016 at the Zoological Society of London

Ecosystems provide services that maintain and improve human wellbeing, such as food provisioning and disease regulation. However, they can also generate ‘disservices’, such as reservoirs for new, ‘emerging’ infectious disease from wildlife. Healthy ecosystems and healthy people go together.Yet the precise relationships between these remain poorly understood. Understanding the interactions between ecosystem change, disease regulation and human wellbeing is an interdisciplinary challenge which the scientific community is only beginning to address.

The Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa Consortium, in partnership with the Zoological Society of London and the Royal Society, are bringing together leading experts from different fields to: 

  • Present new interdisciplinary frameworks for a real-world One Health approach.
  • Highlight research evidence from field-based settings in Africa and beyond.
  • Debate implications for policy and practice.

Members of the organising committee include Professor Andrew Cunningham (Institute of Zoology), Professor James Wood (University of Cambridge), Professor Melissa Leach (Institute of Development Studies) and Professor Ian Scoones (Institute of Development Studies).
