Get (It) Together is the first national student event in the field of One Health, which was held on Friday, June 10th. Instant success. More than 100 students from all over the Netherlands visited the event.
Antibiotic resistance and infectious diseases such as zika and Q fever are having an increasingly large impact on humans and animals, particularly in a densely populated country like the Netherlands. Experts in the areas of human and animal health are therefore joining forces. Edith Schippers, Dutch Minister of Health, Welfare and Sports, has opened this Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) on 4 February.
“The NCOH will make it possible for us to realise far faster breakthroughs in the area of emerging infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance,” said Anton Pijpers on BNR news radio.
Together with his Royal Highness the King of the Netherlands, the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Edith Schippers, and the State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Sharon Dijksma, visited UMC Utrecht on 6 October 2015. The visit focused on the approach to antibiotic resistance.
