The Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health was created with the express purpose of impacting human health by developing innovative solutions that combat, prevent, and mitigate the impact of global infectious diseases that occur at the animal-human interface. This animal-human interface is the place wherein 75% of emerging infectious diseases first occur. The Allen School has developed an integrated approach to improve human health and food/economic security: i) rapid and accurate detection of existing and emerging pathogens; ii) reduction of zoonotic pathogen levels below those required for animal to human transmission; and iii) discovery, development, and delivery of novel vaccines to prevent diseases in tropical livestock.
The intent of this LibGuide is to provide information and links to electronic and print resources useful to global animal health, particularly as it relates to the goals and mission of WSU's . Links to freely accessible, open access resources are emphasized, but in some cases, access via a library system, such as WSU's, is required. For questions about the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, please the Allen School directly.
