Massey University is implementing a two-phase regional training program to strengthen epidemiology and biosecurity capacity within a One Health framework in seven countries in South Asia. The program is funded by the European Commission through the Avian and Human Influenza Trust Fund administered by the World Bank (Grant No. TF098536). The beneficiary countries are: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
A South Asia Regional One Health Symposium will be held in December 2013 for key participants in the One Health Hubs, including technical specialists and senior decision makers and policy directors in the government sector in each country, regional and international experts, and representatives of the donor and international agencies, serving as a regional knowledge-sharing event focussed on One Health epidemiology and biosecurity.
Some important regional events are taking place in the One Health Network, culminating in the South Asia Regional One Health Symposium in Bhutan at the end of this year. Click on the links below to find out more.
