It was with great enthusiasm that NCOH took up the guest editorship of the September 2021 edition of the Dutch Journal of Medical Microbiology (NTMM).
On 7 October ‘To end human deaths by rabies in 2030’ was the topic of the NCOH webinar. Rabies kills one person every 9 minutes, with over half of them children. It is a zoonotic and viral disease which occurs in more than 150 countries.
NCOH bundles One Health top research
The Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) aims for an integrated One Health approach to tackle the global risk of infectious diseases. NCOH commits to create durable solutions for this major challenge by bundling world-leading academic top research in the Netherlands in the area of One Health.
Young NCOH is the network for PhD students and post-docs from the NCOH research groups. Aim of the network is sharing knowledge and expertise in One Health related disciplines, which can lead to new collaborations in research.
Complementary research themes
The 4 NCOH strategic research themes are complementary and interactive. They focus on studying the interactions and connections between human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental health. The focus of NCOH is on (re-)emerging infectious diseases, epidemics, and antimicrobial resistance, including veterinary and environmental challenges. Its objective is to find sustainable solutions for global One Health challenges. How NCOH and its researchers accomplish this, you can read in our NCOH interactive brochure.
NCOH is partner in the Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP).
