Course Summary

The One Health approach is increasingly important as appreciation grows that the interactions between people, animals and environment are major determinants of health and well-being, and in particular to pathogen transmission and the diseases caused.

Overview

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. It also complements other strengths in Liverpool, including the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the Wolfson Centre for Personalised Medicine, the Medicines for Children Research Network, and the Wellcome Trust Tropical Centre with its associated PhD programme.

A One Health approach to infectious disease research is increasingly important as it is becoming156 clear that the interactions between people, animals and environment are major determinants of pathogen transmission. Greater understanding of these interactions will increase our knowledge of the impact of infectious diseases on the health and well-being of both humans and animals. Within the Institute of Infection & Global Health we are studying the effect of urbanisation, globalisation, climate change, agricultural intensification and encroachment on wildlife habitat on the (re-)emergence of pathogens threatening biodiversity, water and food, and human/animal health.
