The bird flu that is now raging in the Netherlands is not dangerous for humans. But scientists say they are waiting for a new variant that can be fatal. Netherlands Centre for One Health organises a webinar to gain more expert insight in this type of flu.
In the past months Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) has been hosting a series of scientific lectures on COVID-19. This time not the current pandemic, but a silent pandemic, the antimicrobial resistance, was put in the centre of attention. If you missed it, you can find access to the full webinar recording and the presentation slides here.
NCOH Student Travel Grant
The NCOH awards a number of travel grants to PhD students of NCOH Partners selected to present their abstract at an international One Health-related academic conference.
In the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week the Netherlands Centre of One Health organises a webinar about Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), the silent pandemic.
By joining forces we are building a better future. Pandemics will continue to emerge and spread rapidly due to globalization, pressure on our natural world, environmental degradation and dwindling biodiversity. Together we can address this global #onehealthchallenge!
