As transborder mobility of humans, animals, food, and feed products increases, the threat of spreading dangerous pathogens and infectious diseases increases as well. Today, whether carried by an unknowing traveler or an opportunistic vector, human pathogens can rapidly arrive anywhere in the world. However, these outbreaks and its consequences for countries such as Germany and France should be put into perspective: Although outbreaks of infectious diseases are very often associated with Ebola or Zika, viruses causing measles or influenza, acute gastroenteritis or tick borne encephalitits have a much greater Public Health impact for our living environment in France and Germany.

This conference, co-organized by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), unites experts, political decision makers, journalists, students and interested publics to better understand the consequences of globalization on Public Health through a transdisciplinary Franco-German approach. It is the sixth conference in a series of workshops and conferences on Global Health issues organized by the Centre Virchow-Villermé for Public Health Paris-Berlin since 2014.
