Why One Health in the Caribbean
One Health ListenMi News - BayC
In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 sustainable development goals to transform our world. These goals are aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring prosperity for all. They recognise that ending poverty and addressing a range of social needs cannot be achieved without tackling climate change and protecting life on land and in the seas.
One of the key One Health actions, is the University of the West Indies' One Health One Caribbean One Love project. We are working with Caribbean collaborators & other stakeholders to change the way people respond to complex health issues in the region.
The project has three (3) major components:
1. Developing One Health leaders across the Caribbean
2. Improving disease detection in the Caribbean
3. Building regional cooperation and policy in the Caribbean
