To support One Health approaches to complex and emerging issues, the COMOS work group is organizing a series of Webinars to support detection, preparedness, and response to the global spread of African Swine Fever (ASF). ASF is an important animal pathogen with broad implications on global trade. This session will focus on the public health implications including appropriate disposal of animals, health of responders to an ASF event, and mental health concerns for owners, workers, and responders. This session is meant for producers, owners, veterinarians, and government officials involved in the response effort.
Attend this webinar and learn:
· Review the mental health impacts of responding to emergency animal disease event.
· Consider environmental impacts and appropriate disposal methods during a response event.
· Be aware of the occupational risks to emergency event responders.
