Organised by the Belgian Biodiversity Platform in collaboration with other partners

The Biodiversity and Health Community of Practice organised the European OneHealth / EcoHealth Workshop on 6-7 October 2016 in Brussels. The workhop gathered 129 participants, who had the opportunity to discuss the generic OneHealth perspective as well as topical issues such as vectors and vector borne diseases; zoonotic diseases; cross-pollinating agro-eco-human health perspectives; environmental and internal microbiome; and nature health benefits.

The webstreaming videos will be online shortly and a comprehensive report of the workshop will be distributed in due time.

Potentially, a European OneHealth/EcoHealth Community of Practice could be created in the future based on the workshop collaboration and a special issue in the One Health journal might also be organized.

Read the abstracts book of the workshop presentations and posters.
