How does contribute/interact/impact to Global One Health
This course is essential to learn how to combine efforts of multiple disciplines to improve health of humans, animals and plants within sustainable agricultural production.
Aim of the course
The health of people, animals, plants and their environments are closely connected. This short course on Global One Health (GOH) aims to foster interdisciplinary thinking on the cutting edge of agricultural production, the food supply chain and nutritional and public health outcomes (human, plant and animal) in the framework of a food systems approach. Using an academically rooted food systems approach, synergies and trade-offs between scientific disciplines, such as social, environmental, microbiological, animal, plant, epidemiological disciplines, will be explored. Also the role of public and private stakeholders in the food system (farm to fork) will be discussed.
This one-week summer course consists of lectures, data practicals, group discussions and networking. The course will build on insights form social, biomedical, plant, animal, health and environmental sciences.
