One Health: Promoting Animal, Human and Ecosystem Health and Preventing the Global Spread of Zoonotic Diseases
This 30 minute presentation will describe how the One Health approach has improved animal, human and ecosystem health. It will also explain the root causes of the global spread of animal origin (zoonotic) diseases, such as COVID-19.
