PG Certificate in One Health Surveillance

Health surveillance is the ongoing, systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of health-related data with the a prior purpose of preventing or controlling health hazards and identifying unusual events of health importance, followed by the dissemination and use of such information for health action. The OH surveillance system aims at data collection at multiple domains using inter-sectoral collaboration for best outcomes in health management. This is also possible through cross-sectoral collaborative efforts between the human and animal (wildlife and domestic) sectors. The collaboration that exists in different dimensions (across sectors, disciplines, decision making-scales and through public-private partnerships) can be implemented at various steps of the surveillance process with various degrees of integration (Bordier et. al., 2018).

The purpose of the PG certificate
course on One Health Surveillance is to build the capacity of various health professionals to involve in surveillance activity in order to improve health of our communities and animal health. Participants will gain the capacity and necessary expertise to contribute effectively to this rapidly growing multidisciplinary field and to enhance career opportunities. The flexible online learning environment enables the student to learn at the times and locations that suit him best, making this programme suitable for high calibre, busy professionals and graduate/ post graduate in any science subjects preferably from health sciences and Environmental Science
