- 09:00

From 3 to 6 June 2024 at the Tonnara Museum of Stintino the Trans-Mediterranean Zoonosis Prevention Surveillance Network Workshop will be held, developed by the collaboration of some teachers from the Department of Veterinary Medicine of Sassari and the Ecology and Epidemiology Group of the Lancaster Medical School of Lancaster University (UK). In Stintino, 20 international experts from 10 nations will work together and in particular from Algeria, Colombia, France, Italy, Pakistan, Northern Ireland, England, Egypt, Israel, South Africa, and Senegal.

The project's objectives include carrying out a review of the main emerging and re-emerging infectious and parasitic diseases, as well as creating an international observatory for the surveillance of vector-borne diseases.

The event aims to create an international collaboration that plays a crucial role in the prevention and surveillance of zoonoses not only in Sardinia, but in the entire Mediterranean basin. In fact, the network focuses on the prevention of large-scale zoonoses, identifying potential risks and monitoring their spread in order to provide essential and timely information for the adoption of preventive measures.

The plenaries of the various international experts will be open to the main stakeholders of the sector as well as to students of specialization schools (Doctors, Biologists and Veterinarians), PhD students and students.

There will also be a Youtube streaming service via the @Parasitology channel:

The workshop is sponsored by the Tonnara Museum of Stintino, the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), the Italian Society of Parasitology (SOIPA) and Sardegna Turismo of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia.
