The health of people, animals, plants and their environments are closely connected. This has implications for our effort to produce and consume food whilst safeguarding our planet, with a world population that will reach 9 billion in 2050. How do we deal with (re)emergence of infectious diseases driven by urbanisation and globalisation? The Global One Health course addresses these concerns and highlights approaches towards human, animal and plant health using a transdisciplinary lens. You will gain insights, tools and practices to better advise on and manage policies on Global One Health in your own country.
Upon completion of the course you will:
- Have gained insight in the principles behind a Global One Health (GOH) approach and be able to apply these principles to health challenges for humans, animals and plants in their day-to-day work.
- Understand the scope of GOH and learn about the interrelatedness of animal, human, plant and environmental health;
- Get familiar with applying different tools and feel equipped to perform GOH analysis;
- Have learned about the ecological and economic relevance of GOH management;
- Have got exposed to GOH practices in the Netherlands and are able to identify entry points for GOH policy, planning and management in their own country.
