One Health EJP Summer School 2019 – The University of Surrey, UK and Chatham House, London, UK
The One Health concept recognises that human health is tightly connected to animals and the environment. Multiple reports have highlighted the need for ‘One Health’ interventions towards the delivery of better health outcomes across each of the health domains. In other words, One Health actions must contribute value over and above the status-quo traditionally characterised by isolated or domain-specific approaches. However, One Health operationalization, or the identification of concrete actions to implement the One Health concept, remains a challenge. The mechanisms to support a value-driven and efficient One Health operationalization are at the centre of the summer school.
This summer school aims to provide:
- an understanding of the complexity of health challenges and how to use a One Health approach to address these.
- ways to identify, characterise, and quantify the drivers of value from One Health approaches across programmatic areas (e.g. prediction, detection) and stakeholders.
- an ability to recognise the methods and operational approaches for effective preparedness and response to One Health threats.
- an understanding of the application of robust monitoring and evaluation tools to implement One Health interventions.
Students will learn a number of technical and organisational skills that they will be able to practice on a number of case studies. The programme will deliver an introduction to One Health basics, prediction approaches, analyses of integrated disease surveillance, outcomes research, risk management, and decision quality
Am I Eligible?
