Wrap up

During this week you became acquainted with different One Health case studies and learned how One Health works in practice.

You deepened your understanding about rabies and applied what you discovered about transmission diagnosis, control and prevention. You delved into pet assisted therapy and examined how it can improve health and well-being for humans. Furthermore, you learned how people, markets, institutions and laws shape food production for livelihoods and discussed with your fellow students processes to mitigate food risks.

In Week 4 you will learn more about qualitative methods of One Health and socio-cultural aspects in One Health, eg why it is important not only to engage with academics but also with non-academics (communities, local authorities, policy makers etc.).
