Opportunity: Free Online Health Course
Course Starts: September 25, 2017
In today’s globalised world, old diseases persist and new illnesses spread faster than ever. This is due to interconnected ecosystems and the close ties between humans and animals. Stressing this interrelatedness, One Health calls for closer cooperation between human and animal health. This course explores how One Health works in practice, bringing together different scientific perspectives. You will, for instance, study vaccination coverage data and discuss food safety enhancement. You will learn how to calculate the added value resulting from the One Health approach using case studies.
Participants will learn how doctors and veterinarians could work together more closely to save more human and animal lives and even saving money. You will also learn theoretical foundations and hands-on practical methods for planning and implementing integrated approaches to health care. Enroll here for the open online course, produced by the University of Basel and Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute. The duration is 6 weeks, 5 hours per week.
