Scientific Program

PRELIMINARY VERSION

OVERALL THEME: “New challenges of applying one health approach in a changing environment’’

This ICOPHAI will allow scientists and professionals from Universities, the private sectors and governments to meet and discuss about science covering the 3 components of risk analysis (risk assessment, risk management and risk communication). As always, North and South countries exchanges will be promoted. The thematic areas for three special sessions will be: “Are animal production and sustainable environment compatible from a risk analysis perspective?”, “Emergence of antimicrobial resistance in the era of drug use and misuse”, and “Capacity Building of One Health taskforce”.

A total of seven other sessions on various thematic areas, including food safety, climate change, social and behavioral sciences in biosecurity approach, vaccines, environmental risk management, zoonotic diseases management, risk perception and communication. Chairs and Keynote Speakers for all sessions and the plenary one will be:
