MOOC: One Health: Connecting Humans, Animals and the Environment
In our globalised world, new approaches to preventing, treating and controlling diseases are urgently needed. New illnesses seem to spread faster than ever thanks to interconnected ecosystems and the close connections between humans and animals. Stressing this interconnectedness, One Health seeks an integrative approach to human and animal health. This course will explore this approach and examine the value of it - as well as explain how One Health strategies work in practice.
In this free online course, we will attempt to answer some key questions, including:
What are the many advantages of a closer cooperation between human and animal health?
What transdisciplinary processes can be set up to solve a particular One Health problem efficiently?
