CENTRE For ONE HEALTH
- Training Capacity Building
In an attempt to bridge the gap between human, animal and environmental health, COHEART & Department of VPH, organised a one day educational programme on Health Hygiene and Diseases for School students on 28th June 2017. The participants were VI, VII, VIII and IX students of Government High School Achoor. The title “Health, Hygiene and Diseases” alludes to incorporate elements of one health concept among students. A questionnaire survey was conducted and the questions were generated in order to study the basic/background knowledge on the topic at hand. Facilitators of the awareness programme were Megha P.U, Dr Abdulla Sheik and Ayesha Jumana; Research Assistants of VPH department. The programme was inaugurated and the welcome address was delivered by Mrs. Stella, Head Mistress of the School. The participants were also subjected to a short quiz programme after the session. The participants, who were the members of health club had a good insight on various topics, and by the end were even excited about how they could take it further. The programme was concluded after interaction with students, and the vote of thanks by Mrs Shiji; faculty in charge of school health club.
