The Global One Health initiative (GOHi) is pioneered through efforts of The Ohio State University community and global consortium partners from Brazil, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, Tanzania, Thailand and Uganda. GOHi brings together two concepts: One Health and Global Health. Their mission is to “Expand capacity for a One Health approach via applied education, training, research and outreach to more efficiently and effectively address causes and effects of diseases at the interface of humans, animals, plants and the environment.” Find out more about the initiative here and on the GOHi website.
