NCOH brings you its first COVID-19 webinar on 6 July World Zoonoses Day!

In the upcoming months NCOH will be hosting a series of scientific lectures on COVID-19, with a special focus on the One Health approach to current challenges. The first webinar “COVID-19 in minks” will be held on 6 July, World Zoonoses Day!

Prevention and control of infectious diseases outbreaks are important societal challenges that require an integrated and balanced perspective in which human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental elements and considerations are integrated.
