Strengthening Global Resilience Through One Health: A 2020 Vision for a Sustainable Future
Ohio State established its innovative and high impact Global One Health paradigm in 2014. As we enter a new decade, the world continues to face increases in emerging and re-emerging communicable diseases as well as a surge of non-communicable hazards at the interface of humans, animals, plants and the environment.
The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus illustrates the need for continued and expanded intersectoral collaboration and knowledge to meet emerging threats. With our 2020 biennial conference, we aim to bring global stakeholders (campus, local, state, national and international) together to discuss priority global health capacity needs, current challenges, and progress towards a more resilient global community.
The objectives of this conference are to:
- Highlight the need for strengthened training, research and outreach capacity to address complex issues pertinent to human, animals, plants and the environment
- Foster collaboration for effective and sustained capacity building/strengthening
- Showcase the diverse projects GOHi and global partners are working on to make an impact around the world
- Bring together key local, state, national and international stakeholders to facilitate knowledge-sharing
As we actively work to curb COVID-19 transmission, the 2020 Global One Health Conference has been restructured to be meet completely online. This conference will meet virtually November 5-7, 2020 from 7 a.m.-12:30 p.m. EST.
