The purpose of this panel discussion is to bring together key stakeholders that influence policy-making to discuss the importance of One Health from the perspectives of medicine, veterinary medicine, environmental science perspectives or from the international NGO,  academia, and international organizations' perspectives. Questions will be taken via the Q&A during the webinar. 

The "One Health" concept is an established idea that human health, animal health, and environmental health are intrinsically intertwined and interdependent. The Health of one affects the health of all. One Health is a collaborative global approach to understanding and managing planetary health risks and encouraging a more sustainable ecosystem balance.

For this event, we invited critical stakeholders to achieve one Health in the public health field, including executive board members taking a leadership position at WHO and OIE, a researcher having a strong influence on Academica, and an activist advocating for reducing the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth at WWF.

You will learn a lot from the resourceful discussion made by experienced professionals.
