Due to tropical geography, the Asia and Pacific regions are hotspots for infectious disease outbreaks. It is only a matter of time until the next epidemic erupts from one of the region’s rainforests or animal farms.

To prevent the next pandemic, a planetary health approach is necessary to address the various drivers of infectious disease emergence and spread such as biodiversity loss, food production and consumption, population mobility, and climate change.
