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!
The annual award for best thesis in Public Health, awarded by the Dutch Congress for Public Health, was awarded to our own Young NCOH alumna: Dr. Myrna de Rooij.
Prof. Annemarie Rebel leads the Animal Health and Welfare Department within Wageningen University & Research. She is also Scientific Director Smart & Healthy Farming at NCOH. During a digital coffee she talked about her work and her interests.
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.
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.
