In the last few decades, the world has seen an increase in new infectious diseases, with the majority of these affecting both humans and animals. In this talk, Katendi speaks about using the One Health approach to fight infectious diseases and predict potential outbreaks. Dr. Katendi Changula is a veterinarian and an avid researcher, looking at diseases that affect both humans and animals. She studies bat populations in Zambia to detect the pathogens they carry, to determine the risk of spill-over of these infections into human populations and to develop new diagnostic tests for these diseases. She has worked with the Zambia Ministry of Health in the laboratory diagnosis of suspected cases of Ebola virus disease and COVID-19. She holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Diagnostic Veterinary Medicine, a Master of Science in Tropical Animal Health and a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine degree. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
