Intertwined - diseases of man and beast and their impact on lives and livelihoods

August 13, 2021
Did you know most infectious diseases in people are of animal origin? We call these zoonotic diseases. Seven out of ten new disease discovered the last decade – including the virus that is responsible for the COVID19 pandemic, are caused by pathogens which jumped from animals to humans. The truth is that our lives and health are closely intertwined with animals and the environment in which we all live. On World Zoonosis Day 2021, join our global panel of experts and practitioners to discuss the impact zoonotic diseases have on our lives, health, and livelihoods and discuss how we can build the capacity and systems to address the impact of zoonotic diseases.
