RISKSUR at the GRF One Health Summit 2013

5 August 2013

The RISKSUR Consortium will present the project at the upcoming 2nd GRF One Health Summit.

The event will take place 17 - 20 November 2013 in Davos, Switzerland. This year's motto:
One Health and the Integrative Risk Management Approach
Towards Integrative Health Risk Management – Collaboration among Sectors and Disciplines for Cost-Effective Overall Risk Reduction.

The 2nd GRF One Health Summit 2013 promotes and fosters an integrative approach in managing health risks at the interface of human-, animal- and environmental health with a strong link to food safety and security and to agriculture. Striving for intensified collaboration among experts and practitioners from the different sectors and disciplines tangent to such a comprehensive health perspective, in particular the pharmaceutical and food industry as well as health insurers’ engagement will provide significant added value to identify cost-effective measures.

GRF Davos aims to pool the concepts of One Health and Integrative Risk Management (Integrative Health Risk Management) to save lives and livelihoods, improve public health and reduce costs. This integrative management strategy will be a key tool to ensure sustainable public health in an era of climate change, resource depletion, land degradation, urbanisation, food insecurity and development challenges.
