ILRI@40: Video note on One Health research priorities in Southeast Asia

This year, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is marking 40 years of its international research by facilitating a series of events that highlight the ways in which livestock research advances the global development agenda, specifically for sustainable food and nutritional security, economic well-being and healthy lives.

In this short film (1:17 mins), Hung Nguyen, a food safety scientist with ILRI in Vietnam, reflects on a recent discussion at a regional workshop on livestock and One Health that identified research priorities in Southeast Asia for the next 40 years.

‘The main thing we heard from participants is the need to prioritise emerging infectious diseases, particularly zoonotic diseases, and anti micro-bio resistance in agriculture and among humans,’ says Nguyen.
