CELEBRATE ONE HEALTH DAY 2018!
Get involved and set up your own activity to bring attention to the need for One Health interactions and collaborations.
The third global One Health Day will be officially celebrated on 3 November 2018 and promises to be a memorable day for the worldwide One Health community. Groups from Australia to Brazil and from Canada to South Africa are organizing exciting events that will help raise awareness about the One Health approach, as shown on the One Health Day Events map.
Anyone can initiate a One Health Day event and they can focus on any One Health-related topic that addresses the inter-connectivity of human, animal and environmental health. If you are planning an event to celebrate One Health Day 2018, it isn’t too late to register it at this link to get on the map. The Event Guidelines will help you plan and implement it. If you need more information or assistance, your regional Point of Contact spokesperson will be glad to help out.
An additional benefit of registering a One Health Day event is the chance for a surprise visit by a renowned One Health leader. These surprise visitors will bring energy and excitement to the selected events by adding the weight of their One Health personality and scientific renown.
One Health Day especially encourages students to set up One Health events that facilitate student delegates working together from different academic disciplines and backgrounds. In fact, student teams may enter their One Health Day events to compete for a $2,000 cash prize. Four award winning student-led events from different regions in the world will be selected by a jury of renowned international One Health experts. Check the Student Competition webpage to see if your Student Team is eligible to apply for a One Health Day Award.
