One Health Seminar Series

The One-Health International Seminar is a collaborative initiative of Hokkaido University and Rakuno-Gakuen University, Japan with Thammasat University’s Eco-Health Research Center. The seminar is aimed to raise awareness among health sciences academia and professionals on the importance of the One-Health concept as a collaborative effort of multiple disciplines - working locally, nationally, and globally - to attain optimal health for people, animals and the environment.

The Faculty of Public Health at Thammasat in collaboration with our Japanese university partners organized the first One Health seminar on November 25, 2016 at our Rangsit campus.

WHO One Health Training

Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is a new tool to characterize foodborne bacteria and their antimicrobial resistance determinants. WGS enables global, regional and national level surveillance and other studies on antimicrobial resistance. For example, PulseNet International, the international network for subtyping of foodborne disease pathogens, is increasingly using WGS to characterize foodborne pathogens and thereby enhancing the knowledge of the foodborne pathogens globally. This Global Workshop aims to:

(1) Create a valuable learning opportunity by providing an introduction to the application of WGS in foodborne disease surveillance and exploring examples of how countries from around the world have utilized the technology; and

(2) Exchange of experience for, and increase networking among, professionals, from different WHO Regions and from multidisciplinary backgrounds, who play a substantial role in national surveillance systems for foodborne diseases and antimicrobial resistance.
