James Cook University World One Health Day Event: 
Sustainable Development Goals and One Health in the Tropics

The theme “SDGs and One Health in the Tropics” will be a series of “3 minute thesis” presentations by academics at James Cook University followed by a plenary discussion.

One Health Day is an international campaign co-coordinated by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team and the One Health Platform Foundation. The aim of One Health Day is to bring international attention to the need for One Health approaches to global “grand challenges” and to showcase One Health initiatives in action around the world.

The One Health Day campaign is designed to engage as many individuals and disciplines as possible in One Health education and awareness events, as transdisciplinarity is a key element of One Health approaches. The Day also aims to inspire the further development of a wide range of One Health projects and partnerships. JCU dedicates this annual event to the late Professor Rick Speare.
