Ebola, MERS, SARS and other new diseases from wild and domestic animals are emerging as a result of agriculture intensification, habitat loss, and climate change.

“One Health” is a transdisciplinary systems concept connecting human, animal, and environmental health to address emerging disease challenges. Wildlife and domestic animals, like the “canary in the coal mine,” can provide early warning of environmental hazards. Through a case-based approach, this course explores integrated approaches to assessment and control of a number of a health issues at the human-animal-environment interface.
