Fundamental to One Health thinking is that inter-disciplinary research and development should be promoted and implemented and veterinary university should pool their insights, knowledge and expertise and develop liaison with the health and allied health sectors including environmental sector. Considering all these and realizing the significance of One Health concept for complete health care, Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (KVASU) has decided to launch a course on One Health in the state after discussion with experts from medical and veterinary fields, disaster management, social scientists, biostatisticians and wild life.
