Special Issue: Wildlife Tuberculosis

This supplement to Transboundary and Emerging Diseases is a compilation of selected papers presented at the International Wildlife Tuberculosis Conference, held from 9 to 12 September 2012 in Skukuza, South Africa.

This conference was the first scientific meeting dedicated to wildlife tuberculosis. In the heart of the world famous Kruger National Park, it brought together researchers, conservationists and policy makers interested in and concerned with wildlife tuberculosis throughout the world. The meeting offered an exciting midterm event supported by the initiators of the series of International Mycobacterium bovis conferences.

We hope that this conference does not remain an isolated event but may be seen as the beginning of a series of inspiring tuberculosis specialist conferences fostering exchange of knowledge, ideas and international collaboration.

Special Issue: Emerging and Re-emerging Epidemics Affecting Global Health

Promoting the ‘One Health’ concept, the ‘Joint Conference on Emerging and Re-emerging Epidemics Affecting Global Health 2012’, held in September 2012 in Palazzo del Popolo (Centro Congressi), Orvieto, Italy, quested for expanding inter-disciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care. The goal of the congress was to review current disease knowledge and provide information needed for the improvement of an effective management of emerging infectious diseases.

The conference was attended by over 200 participants from 44 countries, and it successfully combined the activities of the Society for Tropical Veterinary Medicine (STVM), the Societa Italian Virologia (SIV) and the EU-funded consortia ArboZoonet, PiroVac, CCHfever and Postick. Scientists, practitioners and decision-makers from various scientific fields presented and discussed their work and findings in the field of disease risks and challenges brought by viral, bacterial and parasitic pathogens to humans and animals.

This supplement to Transboundary and Emerging Diseases presents the major topics discussed during the conference. It features original articles on diagnostics, surveillance on zoonotic and non-zoonotic diseases, vector-borne diseases, co-infection and other relevant topics.
