Presentation by Dr Mike Nunn
Breaking down the barriers: 'STEEEP' learnings in One Health
One Health is an approach that recognises the links between animal health, human health and environmental health, aiming to improve all health through multidisciplinary collaborations. Veterinarians play an important role in breaking down the barriers between health disciplines and catalysing the multidisciplinary approach needed to address complex One Health issues.
Dr Mike Nunn is Research Program Manager for Animal Health at the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, in Canberra. His group’s research focuses on issues that enable smallholder farmers to refine their livestock management toward production and income-generation, in contrast to ‘keeping’ livestock solely as an asset. The group concentrates on diseases of regional significance, including transboundary diseases, zoonotic diseases, diseases affecting production and diseases affecting trade and market access.
Join Dr Nunn as he illustrates how we can implement more holistic solutions to animal, human and environmental health, sharing examples from both developing and developed countries, particularly in public practice. He will explore how this can be achieved by adopting strategic foresight
