Event Info

One Health Central and Eastern Africa (OHCEA) and the One Health Workforce Project is pleased to announce that a student team at Makerere University is receiving a Special Recognition Award for their rabies awareness event hosted during One Health Day 2016. 

In celebration of the impact the One Health approach has had in Uganda, the student team visited St. Noa Girls' Secondary School in Zanna to host a rabies awareness workshop on November 2, 2016. Discussions between the university and secondary students centered on rabies transmission routes and how to handle cases when someone has been bitten by a dog or a cat. The One Health team—made up of environmental health, animal production and technology, and medical students in their third year at Makerere University—has been trained on the One Health approach to managing infectious diseases by the One Health Central and Eastern Africa (OHCEA) university network in Uganda that is based both in the College of Health Sciences, School of Public Health and College of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Biosecurity.

The One Health Commission event organizers are recognizing the winning student teams and other One Health students around the globe by hosting an international webinar on 20th May 2017.
