The One Health concept recognises the interconnectedness of human, animal and ecosystem health. A One Health approach involves applying a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach to address potential or existing risks that originate at the animal-human-ecosystems interface. The overarching aim of One Health is to achieve optimal health for humans, animals and the ecosystem. This Masters in One Health aims to offer online, specialist teaching to students to acquire knowledge and skills required to work within a One Health framework.
The programme seeks to explore an integrative approach to human, veterinary and ecological health, recognising the importance of interdisciplinary collaborations and the interconnectedness of public health, environmental issues, veterinary and human medicine. The programme also raises awareness of cultural and societal factors that influence how One Health approaches are translated into practice.
