About this event

This event will take place in person on Wednesday 6th July 2022 from 1-9 pm. It will also be live-streamed online (The link will be provided closer to the time), but please save the date and register your interest via Eventbrite.

As the vast majority of emerging infectious diseases (EID) are zoonotic, it’s very likely the next human epidemics will again come from animals. While the world is still recovering from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to invest in capacity building and preparedness for the next emergency through One Health - digital surveillance using mobile and IoT sensing technology, vector populations modelling and a better understanding of the underlying human behaviour and anthropogenic and social factors enabling animal-human pathogen spillover. Further, the recent climate instability and global warming contributed to the increased potential of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases that, due to the changing habitat, are becoming endemic in new parts of the world. We need to better understand the changing abundance of vector populations across different ecosystems due to evolving weather changes having a profound impact on human health decades down the line.

Building on the dPHE recent successes in the mosquito surveillance initiatives in Brazil and Madeira, this interdisciplinary workshop brings together speakers from the MEWAR project from Brazil, Turkey and Madeira, UCL experts, as well as external international stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Digital One Health.

While it seems the COVID-19 pandemic is over, we are not out of the woods yet. New variants are emerging, vaccination programmes are still underway in parts of the world, and the long term impact on citizens health and wellbeing is not fully assessed. The last session will be dedicated to successful COVID-19 digital interventions in the UK and Portugal, and bring unique insights into citizens lifestyle changes throughout the pandemic from our Zoom or not to Zoom study.

Finally, a strategic international workshop with leading experts from UCL and overseas will highlight the major challenges and opportunities for One Health in the context of environmental and societal changes, and risks from global warming.
