One Health Workforce

The One Health Workforce (OHW) project is working towards developing a collaborative workforce that is prepared to prevent, detect, control, and respond to the threat of infectious diseases and zoonoses around the world, in part, by employing the strengths of universities in One Health core competencies and skills. It is part of USAID’s Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT2) program. The focus of EPT2 is cross-sectoral disease surveillance, training, and outbreak response.
