The symposium was supported by Fondation Mérieux, AFD-CNRS, CIRAD and IRD, and aimed to provide a platform for the sharing of scientific and technical expertise linking biodiversity and health concerns, allowing stakeholders to prioritise research on issues that link biodiversity and human health: emerging diseases and biodiversity loss, antimicrobial drug resistance, insecticide resistance, ethnobotanic and plant biodiversity, contaminants in the food web, ecosystem services and health, and the ‘One Health’ concept.
Topics of the symposium:
1. Biodiversity and infectious diseases
2. Antimicrobial drug resistance and other emerging types of resistance
3. Pollutants, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals and trophic web
4. Ecosystem services, conservation and health

11-13 July 2016 International symposium at Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Bangkok 11-13th July 2016
2nd symposium on Biodiversity and Health in Southeast Asia is dedicated to scolars, students, NGOs and stakeholders.
Two days plenary lectures are given by invited speakers.
In practice, two objectives articulate the organization of the symposium:
1) Refining our understanding of the interdependencies of Biodiversity and Health based on a broader disciplinary range of knowledge and perspectives across levels of biological organization and scales.
2) Operationalizing the translation of this integrated knowledge into appropriate policies and interventions.
Participation is free but as the vacancies are limited, participation will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.
The 2nd Symposium ‘Biodiversity & Health in Southeast Asia is supported by the French ANR BiodivHealthSEA, CNRS, IRD, GREASE/ComAcross CIRAD and LACANET One Health
