CALL FOR PAPER
The significance and recognition of fauna as a source of zoonoses are rising. On all continents, zoonoses with a wildlife reservoir are a significant public health concern. There are hundreds of pathogens and many ways of transmission, and numerous factors influence the epidemiology of the various zoonoses. Cost-effective prevention and control of these zoonoses require an interdisciplinary, integrative strategy and international cooperation.
Throughout history, wildlife has been a significant source of human-transmissible infectious diseases. Nowadays, zoonoses with a wildlife reservoir are an important public health concern on every continent. Increasingly, the significance of such zoonoses is being acknowledged, and the need for more attention in this area is being addressed.
The ecological changes that influence the epidemiology of zoonoses within a wildlife reservoir may have either a natural or an anthropogenic cause. Another factor influencing the epidemiology of zoonoses with a wildlife reservoir is the movement of pathogens, vectors, and animal hosts. Vector control should be an integral component of any intervention strategy for vector-borne zoonoses. Implementing restrictions on anthropogenic animal movement is an additional crucial preventative measure. The prompt identification and effective management of outbreaks of zoonoses, as well as interdisciplinary and international collaboration, are essential. Public education and behavior modification are also crucial factors for intervention success. The ‘One Health’ approach, which involves collaboration between veterinary and medical scientists, policymakers, and public health officials, is essential for fostering cooperation and zoonotic disease control.
Based on those problems, the Faculty of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, Universitas Nusa Cendana (FKKH-Undana) took the initiative to hold an international seminar with the theme “The Role of One Health Approach in Addressing Potential Zoonotic Diseases from Wildlife Animals “. The speakers presented are from several countries and are competent to share knowledge regarding this issue. We hope that with this seminar, participants can understand the importance of one health approach in addressing the potential zoonotic diseases from wildlife animals.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The purpose of this seminar is to serve as an intermediary media between various parties to be able to share information among academics, researchers, the government, and parties from various fields of science related to potential zoonotic disease in wildlife animals as well as those with pandemic potential, prevention, and control strategies, for the realization of health.
The aims of this conference are:
- Getting the latest information about the zoonotic disease in wildlife animals that are currently or potentially pandemic.
- Getting up-to-date information on effective diagnostic methods to detect zoonotic disease in wildlife animals, as well as surveillance measures.
- Obtaining information on how to predict and plan actions from various countries in the effort to prevent and control zoonotic diseases from wildlife that have the potential to cause pandemics.
- Developing future research collaborations between FKKH UNDANA, researchers from abroad, the government, and stakeholders, to support the government’s action plan in preventing and tackling zoonotic disease from wildlife animals.
Through the FKKH UNDANA International Conference, it is hoped that it can contribute ideas related to controlling zoonotic animal diseases, as well as encourage and strengthen collaboration between stakeholders in controlling zoonotic animal diseases in Indonesia based on One Health, for the realization of optimal human, animal, and environmental health.
The expected outputs of this seminar are scientific posters and scientific articles contained in the proceedings that have an ISBN, Journal SINTA Index 2.
The international conference theme is “The Role of a One Health Approach in Addressing Potential Zoonotic Diseases from Wildlife Animals.”
This conference is intended for participants from government, university, research center, private, and tertiary institutions, especially those in the fields of wildlife disease, microbiology (virology, bacteriology, parasitology, and mycology), antimicrobial resistance, immunology, zoonosis, veterinary public health, and one health.
