The World Health Organization defines health as the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease. "One Health Uganda" is a unique program that will expose and educate students to "One Health" issues connected to human, livestock, and wildlife interaction in communities within and surrounding national wildlife conservation parks in Western Uganda. Students will learn about zoonotic and non-communicable environmental diseases, as well as the broader issues affecting the well-being of Uganda’s people, livestock, wildlife and ecosystem health, while being immersed in rich African cultural activities. The goal is to create a cohort of future One Health professionals that are globally aware and comfortable in multinational and interdisciplinary collaborations.
