Multiple dimensions of disease epidemics on our ability to achieve One Health – a case study for African swine fever

The purpose of this iCOMOS series of three webinars is to explore the unknowns and less obvious negative consequences of global disease pandemics using African Swine Fever as a model and begin a conversation about the need for preparedness and development of contingency plans when or if it occurs in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Webinar #2: Public health aspects related to African swine fever and global animal health

To support One Health approaches to complex and emerging issues, the COMOS work group is organizing a series of Webinars to support detection, preparedness, and response to the global spread of African Swine Fever (ASF). ASF is an important animal pathogen with broad implications on global trade. This session will focus on the public health implications including appropriate disposal of animals, health of responders to an ASF event, and mental health concerns for owners, workers, and responders. This session is meant for producers, owners, veterinarians, and government officials involved in the response effort.
