Hello and welcome to Rotorua, New Zealand

Hello a mai ki Rotorua, Aotearoa

Welcome to Rotorua, the location selected for the 3rd ICAHS. We will be joined this year by epidemiologists working in human health, with members of the Australasian Epidemiology Association assisting us.

The proposed theme is “Beyond Animal Health Surveillance”, strengthening the linkages between animal, human and environmental health to further integrate One Health approaches into health surveillance. This will encompass topical matters such as new diagnostic technologies in public health, animal health or the ecosystem domain; application of approaches informed by the social sciences; dealing with ‘Big Data’; or the growing concerns about antimicrobial resistance in human and animal populations.

A targeted but select group of workshops will be offered the weekend following the conference.
