The Need for a Unified, Holistic Approach to Environmental, Animal and Human Health

Discussion with Professor Dr. Christine Kreuder Johnson on anthropogenic ecosystem drivers of disease emergence in wildlife and spillover into the human population. We discuss how habitat destruction, including from changing land use patterns and industrial and agricultural intensification and effects of climate change have contributed to epidemics of zoonotic infections. We also discuss how biodiversity loss leads to disease emergence and transmission of zoonotic viruses. Additionally, we discuss the importance of providing access to better living conditions and healthcare for people at the frontlines of zoonotic infection for proper disease detection and prevention of pandemics. Finally, we discuss the imperative for a unified approach to environmental, animal and human health policies in order to avoid future pandemics.
