The One Health approach is a collaborative and all-encompassing way to address plant, animal and  public  health  globally .  Recent  efforts  in  controlling  viral  diseases  of  animal  origin  (for  example, H5N1  avian  influenza  and  swine  flu),  human  beings  (  Ebola  and Zika),  plants  (geminivirus, tospovirus  and  cucumovirus  and  potyvirus)    and  contributions  towards  pandemic  preparedness have  re-emphasized  the  need  for  enhanced  collaboration  on  reducing  risks  of  zoonotic  potential including food-borne  viral  diseases  all  over  the  world.  The  animal-human-plant-ecosystem continuum  entails  collaboration  and  cooperation  amongst  various  sectors  which critical  to  effective and efficient management and control of viral diseases. The Indian Virological Society provides a platform  for  interaction  between  virology  researchers  from  plant,  veterinary ,  medical, aqua,  and microbial virology  field,  technical  experts,  policy  makers, and  policy  implementing  agencies  to develop  coordinated  strategies  for  prevention  of  viral  diseases  at  the  human-animal-aqua-plant microbial  interface.

 

In  the  International    Conference on “Virus Diseases: One Health - One World”, the  virologists  will assess the impact of viral diseases on the food security , food safety , nutrition, and income of rural communities  in  developed  and  developing  countries.  Deliberations during  the  conference  will help develop  the  roadmap  for  a  One  Health-  One  World  strategy  for  effective  detection  and  control  of  the viral  diseases.
