INGSA and the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) in collaboration with partner organisations in key countries, will organise a series of workshops to explore ways to help prevent and mitigate the consequences of the zoonotic spillover originating in the live animal supply chain that involve the overlap between wildlife, other animal species, and humans.
The workshops will be designed to understand the spillover of High Consequence Pathogens (HCPs) originating in the supply chain of animals, increase the understanding of the essential elements and barriers to reducing the risks from HCPs, identify best practice measures to prevent HCP outbreaks, and engage experts and responsible parties who regulate or otherwise influence the management and operation of the animal supply chain. Following the workshops, INGSA and NASEM will generate a guidebook and supporting material on countering zoonotic spillover of HCPs and post the material on the INGSA website.
INGSA and NASEM will also assist partner organisations to tailor aspects of the guidance to prevent and mitigate zoonotic spillover to meet specific country needs and circumstances.
Do you work in the field of Zoonotic Transmission / Food Supply Chains / Food & Health Regulation or in high risk ares of zoonotic transmission?
Then we want to hear from you! We are looking to involve and partner with a range of organisations across Southeast Asia to help support the development and implementation
of guidelines to manage the risk of zoonotic transmission of pathogens. See the 'Get in Touch' page for more information.
