Über den Kurs

Welcome to "Bats, Ducks, and Pandemics: An Introduction to One Health Policy". One Health is the concept that human, animal, and environmental/ecosystem health are linked. The concept provides a useful framework for examining complex health issues such as food safety and security, emerging and vector-borne diseases, and antimicrobial resistance. It can be used to analyze government policies to determine if they are effective in improving health and well-being. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization. Surplus food enabled the growth of cities; cities led to nations, and nations discovered the science and technology that allowed populations to grow. But agriculture comes with costs including environmental and ecosystem destruction and the emergence of zoonotic diseases. Antibiotics are the foundation of modern medicine. But antibiotics have come with costs too, including antimicrobial resistance and potentially harmful changes to human and animal microbiomes. This interdisciplinary course will cover diverse subjects such as basic epidemiology, public health, public policy, basic microbiology, food safety, and security, zoonotic diseases, sanitation and hygiene, antimicrobial resistance, environmental and ecosystem health, and the national and international organizations that oversee health, agriculture, and the environment. Disease outbreaks including Influenza, Q fever, and Ebola will be discussed. While the course was developed and recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic, the concepts learned very much apply to it. This course emphasizes holistic, not siloed, approaches to health, and disease....

An impressive course with vast content and references of the highest quality, explained with tremendous clarity by Prof Laura Kahn. My only critique is to the discussion prompts - too extensive.

The pedagogy for the course was great with well thought learning activities etc, as well as the discussion forums. I was unable to do much of the discussions as they were lengthy, although I would have liked to.

Learned a lot...especially the role of One Health and the OH approach towards life in general. The interdependence between humans, animals, and the environment is pivotal in making relevant adjustments aimed at improving the quality of life for each of these. Besides, I got to utilize my time constructively during the pandemic. I am currently a member of The University of Nairobi One Health Club. We have organized and participated in several events, including tree-planting, vaccination of domestic animals, mangrove conservation advocacy and so much more yet to be done. Thank you to our tutor, the Princeton University, the team that saw to it that this program is a success, and all learners who are working towards the world a better place.

Very informative for a variety of audiences. s a veterinarian this was a great recap of a number of zoonotic diseases, but I also picked up information on the history of disease discoveries and disease outbreaks. Thanks very much! A worthwhile course to bette runderstand one health and epidemiology.

T​his is a good One Health Foundation Course but its topic is misleading. There is no emphasis on bats and not a single time I hear word Duck durning the course.
