One Health is a concept that emerged in the 1990s and has traditionally had the veterinary medicine community as its main constituents and promoters. One Health is based on the interconnectedness of the health of humans, animals and the environment. While One Health has received increased attention, its traditional underpinning emphasizing infectious diseases have been challenged in the light of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, the epidemiological transition and globalization. Join the One Health panel at this years's World Health Summit Regional Meeting in Uganda.

We only have a decade left to achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). By investing to close gender gaps in the health workforce, LMIC governments can reap a “triple dividend” by accelerating achievement of at least three of the goals - health (SDG 3), gender equality (SDG 5), and economic growth (SDG 8). Join the Women in Global Health panel at this years's World Health Summit Regional Meeting in Uganda.
