One health is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to the practice of health.
This approach recognizes that the health of people is linked to the health of animals, plants and our shared environment. It is a wholesome approach to health.
It promotes knowledge and interventions on health matters from all stakeholders including social scientists, engineers, journalists among others. It does not confine health to health care professionals.
The One Health Concept is key in tackling pandemics. In this regard, it plays an important role in the fight against COVID-19.
This week, we have 2 speakers who will share with us their wealth of wisdom pertaining to this important topic:
1. Dr. Richard Ayah from the School of Public Health, University of Nairobi
2. Dr. Gilbert Kirui from the College of Agricultural and Veterinary Science, University of Nairobi
We welcome you to join us!
