It’s with great pleasure that we welcome you to the first Congress to bring together the global One Health and EcoHealth communities for One Health EcoHealth 2016.
The Congress is a ‘meeting of the minds’ for researchers, policy makers and practitioners who are working towards more integrated approaches and effective responses to complex global health challenges.
You are warmly invited to participate in what will be a rich global forum for learning, networking and collaboration. You will be able to interact with colleagues from diverse backgrounds with a common interest in protecting and promoting public, animal and ecosystem health.
There are ongoing and urgent demands to understand the major global health risks that arise from how people, animals and ecosystems interact as part of ‘social-ecological systems,’ and the pathways that are being used and are proving to be useful for managing these risks.
Many of us are challenged by the pressing and growing need to work in more integrated ways across sectors, disciplines and scales – from local, provincial, national and regional to global scales.
The One Health and EcoHealth communities have emerged in recent times in response to these demands and challenges.
How One Health and EcoHealth are contributing to more effective responses to global health challenges will be presented along with the latest research on associated approaches and tools.
You will also have the opportunity to experience Melbourne and Australia. Selected recently as the most liveable city in the world, Melbourne is renowned as a global science and cultural capital. Melbourne and the surrounding area offer everyone something in which to delight.
