The Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY) has joined the Preventing Zoonotic Disease Emergence (Prezode) network with the aim of collaborating in the international strategy to prevent, detect, and respond rapidly to potential emerging diseases of animal origin, announced the rector of UADY, Carlos Alberto Estrada Pinto.

What does this agreement mean for UADY?

We are very proud to join and contribute to this global initiative. This is a relevant effort to address all possible situations that may arise in the future and, as much as possible, prevent a recurrence of what happened with the Covid-19 pandemic a few years ago.

What will this alliance enable?

The importance of being able to work jointly with the Institute of Development Research, UADY, and UNAM is that we can now generate scenarios that allow us to answer important questions, always considering the socio-environmental aspect.

How will your research change?

This will strengthen the work that was already being carried out between the institutions involved, as it will enhance education programs and help train future professionals, researchers, and decision-makers in key concepts for prevention.

Will there be benefits for the community?

The possibility of integrating health approaches through this collaboration is important because it will seek to investigate neglected tropical diseases, which amount to a total of 20 and impact over one billion people worldwide.

What is the Prezode network about?

The members of this network work together with two objectives: to strengthen defense networks worldwide to detect the transmission of diseases from animals to humans and disseminate information as quickly as possible, and to design strategies for sustainable ecosystem management.

Who are its members?

This initiative includes 216 members with scientific, academic, and association backgrounds, including governments from 23 countries such as Mexico, Belgium, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Chile, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Morocco, the United Kingdom, among others.
