The basic principle of One Health is the recognition that health problems affecting our world are rooted in the imbalance of the ecosystem, and this is caused by human activity. As a result, infectious diseases emerging nowadays cannot be managed without the appreciation of those environmental changes that led to the current situation. Notwithstanding, this appreciation is not possible without the interdependent collaboration of different professionals in multidisciplinary working groups. The main goal of One Health Day is to make as many individuals as possible understand that protection of our health is out of the question in the absence of both environmental protection and paradigm shift.
Kaposvár University is to join the campaign in this March for the first time. Within the framework of the programme, the students of the university illustrate, through analysis of complex health problems, the advantages of the holistic approach of One Health. Our event is arranged especially for secondary school students but all other inquiring minds are warmly welcomed.
