In February 2012 the Global Risk Forum GRF Davos holds an international health conference in Davos, Switzerland. The first GRF One Health Summit 2012 will contribute to advancing the concept of “One Health”, striving for intensive collaboration among all stakeholders related to public health. Such an approach acknowledges the systemic interconnections of human, animal and environmental health in close relation with food safety and security and will ensure sustainable public health in an era of climate change, resource depletion, land degradation, hunger and socio-economic development challenges.

The call for contributions for the GRF One Health Summit 2012 is now open. You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation relating to the topics of the conference.
