Description: The Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (GCEID) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary research partnership between Deakin University, Barwon Health/University Hospital Geelong and CSIRO’s Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) based on a “One Health” approach to understanding and mitigating the risks posed by emerging infectious diseases. We aim to use One Health Day to inform Geelong and surrounds on what this partnership right here in the City of Greater Geelong is doing to protect people, animals and the environment from diseases that can spread between animals and humans; so-called zoonoses. The Day will be used to introduce joint research projects that focus on local topics such as the bat colony in the Geelong Botanic Garden, the Bairnsdale ulcer as well as influenza virus and other pathogens that may infect animals and humans.
