More than 400 professionals participate in the I Conference on emerging zoonoses organized by IREC

    The first edition of the virtual training sessions “Emerging zoonoses, environment and global health: latest advances in prevention and control” have brought together more than 400 professionals from the fields of health and the environment.


    More than 250 specialists have participated this morning in the second session of the I Virtual Conference on "Emerging zoonoses, environment and global health: latest advances in prevention and control”, organized by the Hunting Resources Research Institute (IREC) in collaboration with the Castilla-La Mancha Institute of Health Sciences.

    Aimed at professionals, researchers and students in the fields of health and the environment, this virtual activity has been structured into four blocks. They have addressed issues of international relevance based on the concept One Health (Global Health), such as the latest advances in emerging zoonoses, the management of wildlife to prevent zoonoses and advances in the prevention and control of vector zoonoses. In addition, during the last block, the sharing of studies and research has been carried out for the integration of the training of the participants.

    The second session of the conferenceEmerging zoonoses, environment and global health: latest advances in prevention and control” held today was attended by more than 250 specialists in the fields of health and the environment. As a whole, the sessions have had the participation of more than 400 professionals, researchers and students (Photo: Luis Flores, former student of the Master in Basic and Applied Research in Hunting Resources (MUIBARC).

    Also, within the framework of a debate table, there has been discussion about how to prepare for the next zoonoses based on the experience accumulated with the latest zoonoses that have emerged on the planet (SARS, Avian Flu, Ebola, Crimea-Congo...).

    The second session of the conferenceEmerging zoonoses, environment and global health: latest advances in prevention and control” held today, together with the first held on April 28, 2021, are part of the activities related to the Virtual International Congress on health and wildlife conservation, also organized by IREC and held between August 31 and September 2, 2021.

    The success of these conferences, which as a whole have been attended by more than 400 professionals, has motivated the organization of the “II Conference on emerging zoonoses, environment and global health”, which will be held in the context of Science Week 2021, specifically on November 11, 2021 in face-to-face and online format, and which will revolve around the role of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) in the pandemic of COVID-19.
