On November 3, 2019 SACIDS Foundation for One Health celebrated International One Health Day 2019 by sharing knowledge and ideas about One Health in a Radio interview at the Sokoine University Radio (SUA FM).
The Foundation invited its PhD students for the interview to speak about their research activities in relations to One Health. Students attended the Radio interview are Ms. Janet George, Mr. Levi Omache and Mr. Edson Kinimi.
Speaking during the interview, Ms. George stressed on One Health approach as the way addressing health challenges regionally and globally.
“I am happy for this opportunity to educate the public about One Health approach and how it can be applied in addressing many current issues such as antimicrobial resistance, food and water safety and security and many other complex challenges.” said Ms. George.
In 2018, The Government of Tanzania established a One Health Coordination Desk under Prime Minister’s Office formalizing adoption of ‘One Health’ approach to the prevention, detection and response to outbreaks and embracing coordinated action and information sharing to prevent, minimize and respond to outbreaks in saving lives.
One Health Day, held annually Nov. 3, is a global campaign that celebrates and brings attention to the need for a One Health Approach to address shared threats at the human-animal-environment interface
