The world that we live in today is acutely recognisable as affected by infectious diseases. Despite decades of work on predicting and preventing the next pandemic, the third major betacoronavirus outbreak within 20 years was still able to lead to the second SARS pandemic of the 21st century.

At the same time, old scourges are reappearing both in poverty- and emergency-affected regions of the world and also in our backyards. This is an intolerable and unsustainable place to find ourselves in, as pandemics, health emergencies and weak health systems not only cost lives but also pose some of the most significant risks to the global economy and security faced today.

Drawing on her research and career at the intersection of academia and public health emergency response, Dr Charlotte Hammer will outline the basics of applied infectious disease epidemiology and the importance of One Health approaches for pandemic preparedness. She will draw broad interdisciplinary lessons to guide our inevitable interactions with, and response to, pathogens as a global society, reflecting on insights from her experiences working in humanitarian emergencies, pandemic response and academic research.
