“... Training future scientists and policy makers to design a ‘One Health’ strategy against pathogens
Many domestic animal and human infections caused by food-borne, water-borne, vector-borne, and zoonotic pathogens are on the rise in Canada because of globalization, climate change, and changes in land use, such as deforestation. The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the devastating impact of pathogens on all sectors of society, which were disproportionately experienced among vulnerable, racialized, and marginalized communities due to underlying inequities.
The One Health Against Pathogens (OHAP) program will conduct research on how the microbiome of healthy agricultural animals can be optimized to prevent the transmission of infectious disease. Additional training in science communications and policy development will prepare OHAP graduates to contribute various skills to the Canadian workforce.
“The NSERC CREATE in One Health Against Pathogens (OHAP) will train graduate students to think holistically about the profound connections between environmental, animal, and human health, and take these connections into account when devising strategies to control the spread of infectious disease,” says Professor Jen Ronholm. “Especially for pathogens with complex transmission pathways, a “One Health” approach is needed for effective, equitable, and sustainable control that maximizes public good and minimizes harmful social, economic, health and environmental outcomes.” ...”
