The need for an integrative thinking to fight against emerging infectious diseases

Abstract : We present here the proceedings of the 5th seminar on emerging infectious diseases (EIDs), held in Paris on March 22nd, 2016, with seven priority proposals that can be outlined as follows: •Encourage research on the prediction, screening and early detection of new risks of infection •Develop research and surveillance concerning transmission of pathogens between animals and humans, with their reinforcement in particular in intertropical areas (« hot-spots ») thanks to public support •Pursue aid development and support in these areas of prevention and training for local health personnel, and to foster risk awareness in the population •Ensure adapted patient care in order to promote adherence to treatment and to epidemic propagation reduction measures •Develop greater sensitization and training among politicians and healthcare providers, in order to better prepare them to respond to new types of crises •Modify the logic of governance, drawing from all available modes of communication and incorporating new information-sharing tools •Develop economic research on the fight against EIDs, taking into account specific driving factors in order to create a balance between preventive and treatment approaches.
