Training the Global Health Workforce

From the Fall 2018 Issue of Minnesota Alumni

Thanks to a collaborative program called One Health—funded by the United States Agency for International Development and led by the U of M and Tufts University—government workers and students from around the world are being trained to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats. One Health experts in a range of disciplines have taught students to judiciously dispense antibiotics, for example, in order to stem the spread of resistant pathogens. They also helped define infectious disease workforce needs in seven countries in Africa and Asia. Pictured here, students in Thailand attend a field training course and prepare for outbreak response needs using the One Health approach.
