One Health Conference Purpose
Environmental Health provides a critical link to protecting human health from human-to-human, vector-borne, and zoonotic diseases. Our gathering of academics and practitioners is organized around our theme, to be "a Multidisciplinary Collaboration for a Healthier World" and in our meeting, we will use discussions and presentations about new surveillance techniques, diagnostics, disease prevention strategies, policies, academic curriculum design, and much more to foster networking and One Health capacity building within the global environmental health community.
One Health Initiative Purpose
The One Health Initiative describes the One Health concept as "a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations."
