Breaking the Chain of Health Risks from the Wildlife Sources in China

As China’s wildlife trade governance has undergone drastic changes due to the policy evolution as the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been growing concerns over the implications of the new policy moves on reducing the likelihood of zoonotic pathogens spillover from the human-wildlife interface along the wildlife trade supply chain.   

We will employ an evidence-based One Health approach to systematically embed public health risks related to the wildlife trade into governance and policy reform along the wildlife trade chain in China, empowering the government’s regulatory and monitoring agencies to help reduce the likelihood of the next pandemic originating from wildlife-related pathogens.
