The Confluence of Science, Policy, Politics, and the Multisectoral Approach to Zoonotic Disease





Conversations and news on how science and scientists influence policy and decision-making has increased in the past few months, and the challenges faced between science, policy, and politics is not new. In the fields of science (epidemiology, medicine, public health, animal health, and food safety among others), decision-making and policy informed by science is imperative and yet we have all experienced how other factors may alter those decisions and policy development.


During the call, clinicians will learn how specific examples of zoonotic disease responses have highlighted the contribution of science, policy, and politics in successful and some not so successful outcomes.
