One Health in ACTION: Significant New One Health Oriented “Infection, Ecology and Epidemiology Network (IEE)” Established in Sweden Read More on Home page: www.infee.se “Combating and controlling zoonotic infections effectively, requires an approach where researchers use the “One World – One Health” perspective. The purpose of the IEE network is to stimulate interdisciplinary projects resulting in increased knowledge of emergence, spread and effects of infectious disease on human, domestic animals and wildlife. … .” Infection, Ecology and Epidemiology, IEE network is a Swedish national collaboration for researchers with interest in zoonotic infections. As a consequence, some of the information on this website can only be found in Swedish. We apologise for any inconvenience and kindly ask you to contact IEE if you have questions and comments. Purpose IEE is an integration concept including several universities and governmental organizations that wish to contribute to a sustainable intellectual platform where veterinarians, physicians, molecular biologists, ecologists and environmental chemists with an interest in zoonotic infections can interact and create synergies. The rationale is not to build up new laboratory facilities, but to use and collaborate within already established research structures.
