    Title: “Investigation of influenza through active surveillance at the human / animal / environment interface, and risk of emergence and transmission for humans”

    Speaker: Mamadou Malado JALLOW, PhD student

    Abstract: 

    Emerging influenza viruses pose a public health problem. Indeed, influenza A viruses circulate in many animal species with the possibility of crossing species barriers, particularly from animals to humans. Thus, the surveillance of influenza strains circulating in animals as well as the evaluation of their potential to cross the species’ barrier and to cause infections in humans are important for a good preparation for influenza pandemics. Senegal has a long history of influenza surveillance but exclusively focused on humans. Thus, the lack of surveillance at the human / animal interface is the real weakness of influenza surveillance in Senegal. This study aims to better understand the epidemiology, ecology and genetic characteristics of avian influenza viruses that potentially circulate in Senegal through active multi-site surveillance.
