Course content

One Health is an emerging discipline that studies the complex relationships and interactions between animal health, human health and ecosystem health. The new, re-emerging and recurring global health threats that we are facing require a long-term, more strategic approach to global health preparedness. Underlying the problem is the growing interaction between human and animal populations driven by growth in the human population, new trends in animal production practices, changing patterns of wildlife populations, human intrusion on new ecosystems, and trans-border mobility of humans, animals, food and feed products.
