One Health, as defined by the World Health Organization, is an approach to designing and implementing programmes, policies, legislation and research in which multiple sectors communicate and work together to achieve better public health outcomes.
The areas of work in which a One Health approach is particularly relevant include food safety, the control of zoonoses (diseases that can spread between animals and humans, such as flu, rabies and Rift Valley Fever), and combatting antibiotic resistance (when bacteria change after being exposed to antibiotics and become more difficult to treat).
The University of the Philippines and the University of California, Davis, with generous support from the Philippine-California Advanced Research Institutes (PCARI) invites those focused on solving One Health Problems including scholars, researchers, and trainees to attend the 2019 third annual PAN ASIAN One Health International Conference. The conference, entitled: “One Health at the Community Level” will be held on March 26-28 2019 at the University of the Philippines, Diliman Campus, Manila, Philippines.
The conference will be unique in that it will focus on active participant engagement and One Health problem-based solutions in communities. Abstracts and key note presentations at the conference will be followed by smaller group interactions around real problems with further discussion and reflection by experts on the problem.
The conference will have the following themes: Climate and Water, and One Health; Agriculture, Food Security and One Health; Emerging and Re-Emerging Diseases, Natural Resource Degradation, and One Health; Technology, Community Engagement, and One Health.
The program can be accessed here. Each of the themes will begin with a keynote speaker and will be followed by breakout sessions, and than an expert panel discussion.
