The 2nd OHCEA International One Health Conference brings science and policy together aiming at the early recognition and control of emerging (infectious) diseases, now and in the years to come. It focuses on multidisciplinary collaboration involving human, veterinary and eco-health disciplines, other life sciences, social sciences, and informatics. The One Health approach is needed to ensure an improved and sustainable human and animal health and is key to improve monitoring, analysis and prevention of novel global threats posed by re-emerging (infectious) diseases and food safety hazards.

The scientific focus of this Conference will be on how science can help in preventing emerging and re-emerging (infectious) diseases; with a specific side meeting dedicated to the Ebola crisis and Biorisk Management in Africa. Simultaneously, side meetings will be organized to bring established key scientists working in the respective One Health areas together with policymakers, businessmen, funders, governors and International One Health organizations.
