IOHC2015 brings science and policy together aiming at the early recognition and control of emerging (infectious) diseases, now and in the years to come. Prevention at the source is the overall congress theme, as this is key in controlling (infectious) diseases that have a growing impact on humans, animals and their ecosystems.

The 3rd International One Health Congress focuses on multidisciplinary collaboration involving human, veterinary and eco-health disciplines, other life sciences, social sciences, and informatics. The One Health approach is needed to ensure an improved and sustainable human and animal health and is key to improve monitoring, analysis and prevention of novel global threats posed by re-emerging(infectious) diseases and food safety hazards.

The scientific focus of the 3rd International One Health Congress will be on how science can help in preventing emerging and re-emerging (infectious) diseases. Simultaneously, a Science Policy Interface (SPI) track will be organized to bring established key scientists working in the respective One Health areas together with policymakers, businessmen, funders, governors and International One Health organizations. The aim of this track is to discuss and integrate One Health advancements into the decision making process.
