ISAZ 2020 is taking place on 29th June to 2nd July and the theme is ‘One Health, One Welfare: Wellbeing for all in human-animal interactions’. It is well recognised that the health and welfare of humans and animals are inextricably linked: from welfare-friendly farming and safe food production to positive interactions with our companion animals and sustainability of our natural world. In this conference we will explore the links between human and animal wellbeing across a wide variety of human-animal interactions. The 2020 theme will be of course complemented with topics representing the wider field of anthrozoology was well.

Nicola Williams (University of Liverpool) on The link between antimicrobial resistance in humans and animals
Abigail Woods (King’s College London) on Intersections in histories of human and animal health
