Scientific Committee on Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases
 
Changes in social and ecological conditions including population growth and movement, food and eating habits, environmental and other factors play a part in the emergence of zoonotic or potentially zoonotic diseases. Diseases normally confined to animals may find a path to human beings and cause illness as a result. To tackle these problems from the scientific perspective, Scientific Committee on Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases is set up.
