While rates of exposure in developed countries have fallen, at least one billion people suffer from a helminth infection. In many cases, these infections cause serious health problems and death. However, some helminth infections can be beneficial, helping to protect us from certain autoimmune diseases and allergies. http://ow.ly/XtF5c

WUN partners with a wide range of international agencies and organisations in order to help develop a global research agenda that makes an impact on scientific discovery, policy frameworks and communities around the world. We are looking forward to participating in the upcoming COP21 as an official observer, which will undoubtedly help shape our own research agenda. http://ow.ly/Virtd

Professor David Hogg, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation at the University of Leeds, discusses the value of international research collaborations.

"The Worldwide Universities Network is a global collaboration of excellent universities throughout the continents of the world. Because of that, it also provides access to all those different agricultural systems, all those different types of cities, all those different health systems. That provides a resource that truly makes our own research much more impactful."

In communities where livelihoods are linked to the land and sea, environmental security is of utmost importance. This is particularly true in the developing nations of the Asia-Pacific, where many localities have a high dependency on fisheries, tourism and agriculture. That's why WUN experts are investigating environmental livelihood security within the context of promoting sustainable development. http://ow.ly/QbEuP
