Bats, bat viruses and One Health in Africa

61 users have voted.

This topic will focus on bats and their viruses, particularly in Africa. It will take a closer look at how researchers can hunt bat viruses – where are they, what are they? It will then explore what makes bats special – what are the characteristics that make them good at harbouring so many viruses? Finally, it will look at a way to integrate this knowledge gained in wildlife into human medicine and veterinary sciences, the ‘One Health’ approach.
