The 39th GLOCOL Seminar -- Infectious Diseases and Preventing International Epidemics

2009-7-30 (Thu) 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

If people are to live in safety, they must be protected from various threats. Safe food and water are the most basic requirements for living in safety, but all people living on this earth are not given equal access to safe food and water. Access to safe food and water depends primarily on the economic power and sanitary conditions of a country. In other words, access to safe food and water in a country depends largely on whether that country is rich or poor.

In developing countries, the lives of many people, especially those of children, are claimed because they have poor or no access to safe water. Even in developed countries, cases of death from infectious diseases contracted from infected food or water have been reported.

Thus, it can be said that this basic requirement for human security, access to safe food and water, is a global issue.

In this seminar, the problem of infectious diseases being spread through water and food will be introduced along with problems facing current situations.
