One Health & Food Safety Congress
18–19 September 2018 in Bonn

Individual, regional, and global health of humans and animals is interconnected, pointing to the need for a "One Health" perspective. Antimicrobial resistances as well as foodborne diseases are prominent examples of those close interlinkages. Inappropriate use of antibiotics in human medicine and agricultural production has exerted an enormous selection pressure on the earth microbiome and has increased antimicrobial resistance globally. Many zoonoses relate in some respect to animals in the food production chain and induce foodborne diseases. With a growing rate of antimicrobial resistance among zoonotic pathogens, the consequences of these infections for human health become even more problematic.

There is a need for stronger collaboration between various disciplines to inspire solutions that may help to protect human and animal health as well as food and environmental safety. Against this background the objective of the One Health & Food Safety Congress 2018 is to bring together researchers from different disciplines including: human and veterinary medicine, animal, plant and environmental science, public health politics, management and economics.
