Program Description:
Avian flu is the most prominent zoonotic infection that threatens the public's health today. Recent decades have seen the emergence of many new infectious diseases in humans, and the continued expansion of the worldwide human population into the surrounding environment, combined with ever increasing globalization, ensures that we will see many other infections emerge in the coming years.

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how emerging infectious diseases may originate from zoonotic or ecological sources.
  2. List systems in place for global surveillance of infectious diseases.
  3. List at least three major zoonoses of recent public health concern.
