We are very proud to announce that Eduardo Berriatúa, Professor of Animal Health at the University of Murcia (UMU) in Spain since 2011 and a member of the European Veterinary Parasitology Group, is going to be talking about the Epidemiology of canine and human leishmaniosis in Europe

This important paper will build upon his recent work on Leishmaniases in the European Union and Neighboring Countries, where a questionnaire was sent to the animal and human authorities about Leishmaniases.

His paper links directly with the work on the One Health approach of expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment.

In the same research stream of the ALIVE event, Orin Courtney, Reader (Associate Professor), Zeeman Institute & School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick, UK, will be specifically addressing the One Health approach with his paper on the Advances in the One Health control of leishmaniosis.
