OHEJP Summer School 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic led the organising team to deliver the One Health EJP’s second Summer School as a virtual event on 17th-28th August 2020.

The organisers and speakers worked hard to deliver a high-quality interactive course to 34 delegates- almost twice as many as last year, and to our OHEJP stakeholders who were also invited to attend this course.

This year’s programme boasted leading EU and international experts in public health, animal health and environmental health who face today’s challenges to implement One Health strategies in the different health fields.

A wide variety of One Health topics were covered including: disease surveillance for One Health, wildlife and public health, zoonoses modelling, AMR and parasites in the food chain to name a few. The programme also included factors to consider during implementation of One Health strategies such as governance and politics of One Health, sustainable development, economics in global health, socioeconomic impact emerging zoonoses, and connecting with stakeholders.

Delegates represented various stages of their career including bachelors, masters students, PhD students, early career post-doctoral researchers and teaching lecturers and belonged to multiple disciplines across the One Health domains including veterinary medicine, human medicine, biological sciences, infectious diseases, disease surveillance, microbiology, mathematical modelling, economics, social sciences, sustainability sciences, public health, and virology.

This unique consortium of delegates allowed for collaborative discussions, for knowledge and experiences to be shared and for collaborative engagements and future relationships to be formed amongst participants from 22 countries across the globe.
