Edinburgh to host World One Health Congress 2020

One Health Congress 2020

Scotland’s capital will host the esteemed “6th World One Health Congress” in 2020, following a successful competitive bid process against other European cities. The Congress will take place on 15-18 June 2020 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC).

The event, which will deliver £3.3m into the local economy, reinforces Edinburgh’s position as one of the world’s leading hubs for medical and health expertise.

One Health is an international movement that aims to attain optimal health and well-being for people, domestic animals, wildlife and the environment, by bringing together various disciplines to make a difference to society and the lives of people. One Health aims to enhance understanding of and preparedness for current and future outbreaks of infectious diseases in humans and animals, including the ecological and environmental factors which impact on these diseases.

Over 2,000 participants will attend the event, presenting the opportunity to showcase Scotland’s sector expertise and resource to a worldwide audience. Scotland’s strong Higher Education sector continues to deliver world class research, which is helping to deliver solutions to global challenges within livestock industries and both veterinary and human medicine.

Professor Anna Meredith and Dr Neil Anderson of the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and The Roslin Institute were key members of the bid team.

Living Safely with Bats

A primary goal of PREDICT’s behavioral risk surveillance work is to use scientific results to inform the development of intervention strategies that could reduce the spillover, amplification, and spread of novel viruses. Preliminary analyses identified an expressed need to provide behavior change strategies as they relate to living safely with bats. PREDICT developed the “Living Safely with Bats” risk mitigation picture book to address this need.

For more information on the booklet, including implementation and use, please contact predict@ucdavis.edu

Newly discovered virus in Myanmar Bats

The discovery of two new viruses related to those that cause SARS and MERS marks PREDICT’s first milestone in the region. To prevent the next pandemic, pinpoint it at the source. That’s the idea behind PREDICT, a global surveillance program that has spent almost 10 years hunting for new viruses that could spill over from vulnerable wildlife to humans. Now, PREDICT researchers in Myanmar have hit pay dirt with a never-before-seen virus that infects wrinkle-lipped bats—a virus in the same family as the ones that cause SARS and MERS. The Myanmar virus is the first of its kind to be detected on a global scale. The team additionally identified a second new virus that had previously been found in Thailand, also in bats. Such discoveries are critical, because what happens in Myanmar doesn’t always stay in Myanmar. “Myanmar is in a central location in Southeast Asia—an area of primary concern for viral diseases and emerging infectious disease,” says Marc Valitutto, a wildlife veterinarian heading the efforts in the region, which is lush with tropical rainforest and rich in biodiversity.
