One Health at USask
In 2011One Healthwas identified as one of six Signature Research Areas at the University of Saskatchewan. Each Area is an 'outstanding achievement enabled by our research capacity, investments, history and sense of place.'
One Health has been defined as "strategy to better understand and address the contemporary health issues created by the convergence of human, animal, and environmental domains ..." (American Veterinary Medical Association, Exe. Summary).
Although not a new concept (in the past it was also known as One Medicine), One Health is a relatively new worldwide strategy that draws upon collaboration from veterinary medicine, human medicine, public health, environmental health, wildlife health, and agriculture) to better understand the human-animal-environment interface
One Health Opportunities at the University of Saskatchewan
Funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, ITraP is an interdisciplinary, international training initiative in infectious diseases, food safety and public policy based at the University of Saskatchewan. This program is based on the 'One Health' ideas and goals.
The Certificate in One Health will help future professionals to:
1) understand the connectedness of, and enhance the well-being of, animal and human health and the health of the environment;
2) obtain the interdisciplinary knowledge and skill sets needed to assess and respond to issues from these complex interactions; and
3) think across the continuum from scientific discovery to policy development.
