About Conference Detail

MESSAGE FROM PATRON-IN-CHIEF

vc bzuZoonosis is one of the most important and emerging issues of public health concern. During last two decades, world has badly struck with zoonotic infections like Avian Influenza, SARS and Swine flu etc. with considerably high rates of morbidities and mortalities among the human population. Further, zoonotic pathogens are also a big hurdle in international trade of animals and their products and have negative impact on the economy of country. This may also be a major cause of social isolation of a country from rest of the world. Realizing the importance of this important issue, the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences has arranged this event to bring together the professionals under one roof to cope with the problem which is highly appreciable. This conference will provide a forum to the veterinary and medical professionals to interact with each to address this important issue for the betterment of humanity. I heartily welcome all the distinguished foreign/national delegates/guests at this conference being held at Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan and hope it will serve as a catalyst to interact and develop the strategies to safeguard the public from zoonotic insults.

Vice Chancellor

MESSAGE FROM CHIEF ORGANIZER

dr. masood akhtarZoonotic pathogens represent serious threat to human health and generate a great covenant of public health concern and scientific interest in both veterinary and medical sectors. According to a recent report, 75% of the emerging diseases originate from domestic or wild animals. Concern is grown towards zoonotic diseases because of multiple factors like their unpredictable nature, their ability to emerge anywhere and spread rapidly around the globe and their major economic impact on industries. Unfortunately, most of the zoonotic diseases are neglected, having received a lack of attention from researchers, policy makers and funders for many years. In order to highlight the importance of zoonotic disease and to promote greater multi-disciplinary input; the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences, Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Pakistan has arranged this 2nd International Conference on Zoonoses-2016. The researchers and experts in this conference are expected to explore the reasons and factors driving the emergence of zoonotic diseases to prominence and to identify more efficient strategies and research programs that need to be developed for better understanding and control of emerging zoonotic infections and their public health impact. I do hope that participants will find this event a valuable addition in their existing scientific knowledge and wish them a great success in their future endeavors.
