Vector Borne Diseases IS a One Health Matter

With Anthony Chadwick and Alasdair King

About this episode

Joining Anthony for today’s episode of our sustainability series on VetChat by The Webinar Vet, is Alasdair King, Executive Director of International Veterinary Health for MSD Animal Health.

 

Ahead of the MSD Animal Health one health approach to vector born diseases symposium in March 2022, Anthony and Alasdair have an insightful chat on the topic. In this episode, Anthony and Alasdair talk about Alasdair’s career so far, such as his work on stopping the spread of bluetongue in the UK. Alasdair then moved into work tackling much larger diseases such as rabies and foot and mouth disease. The two of them discuss the importance of the one health perspective to disease control and how the medical professions can collaborate to share knowledge.

 

Alasdair also shares information on what to expect from the MSD Animal Health one health approach to vector born diseases symposium. Including the structure of the event, the speakers involved, and what to expect from the sessions.
