Faculty:
David Nabarro - Senior United Nations System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza, United Nations, New York
Mark Woolhouse - Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology for the Center for Infectious Diseases, University of Edinburgh, Scotland

Abstract:
Twentieth century innovation created remarkable gains in public health, animal health and the global food supply chain. At the same time, continued advancement and globalization have led to increasingly higher risk environments in which diseases can spread with incredible speed around the globe - between animal populations, between humans, and, increasingly, between animal and human populations. It is estimated that 75% of the new emerging diseases are transmitted between animals or animal- related products and humans, yet there is little coordination between the animal and public health sectors, limited attention to comprehensive prevention strategies, and limited understanding and integration with private sector institutions that are often directly or indirectly impacted.

In cooperation with Michigan State University and the University of Minnesota, this session is intended to capture and catalyze innovative responses and begin the formation of a diverse network of leaders dedicated to addressing these critical issues. The core of these efforts will focus on creating effective linkages, strategies and actions at the intersection of animal and public health between government oversight agencies, higher education and private sector institutions that can respond to the challenges and dilemmas of addressing emerging diseases and health issues. This session is by invitation only.

*Funding for the project was provided to Michigan State University and the University of Minnesota from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
