The Community for Emerging and Zoonotic Diseases (CEZD) is a virtual multidisciplinary network that includes partners from provincial, federal and municipal governments, industry, and academia in areas of public, animal and environmental health.
CEZD was developed to support Canada’s animal early warning, preparedness and response capabilities needs regarding emerging and zoonotic diseases. Through the gathering of information, analysis and the generation and distribution of timely intelligence reports, Canada is now better able to anticipate, manage, and mitigate pending disease threats on its society, economy, environment, and animal resources.

Transdisciplinary Living Document
The living paper on the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) provides a structured compilation of scientific data about the virus, the disease and its control. Its objective is to help scientists identify the most relevant publications on COVID-19 in the mass of information that appears every day. It is also expected to foster a global understanding of disease control and stimulate transdisciplinary initiatives.
This living paper is updated on a weekly basis.
