Zoonotic diseases can have far-reaching impacts on the health of people, animals, environments, economies and health systems globally. A multidisciplinary and multisectoral collaboration, through a One Health approach is required to effectively prepare for, detect, assess, and respond to emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases. However, during outbreaks of zoonosis, countries usually have limited time to organize the response.

Today, a new online course is available for free to help explore concepts of coordinated response to manage zoonotic disease outbreaks.

What you will learn:

  • Be reminded of One Health principles
  • Apply One Health principles to zoonotic disease outbreak response
  • Better understand the diverse perspectives and mandates of different sectors involved in zoonotic disease outbreak response
  • Discover examples of how to coordinate a response between stakeholders in different phases of an outbreak
