One Health – World One Health Congress

One Health – World One Health Congress

SEFARI delivers the Scottish Government funded Strategic Research Programme 2016-2021 on agriculture, environment, food and land, providing direct and tangible benefits across diverse issues. We are delighted to be supporting the World One Health Congress (#WOHC2020) and recognise how interconnected humans, plants, animals and our environment are and the importance of a One Health approach.

SEFARI research spans a number of areas relevant for One Health, including the evaluation of livestock health; animal disease epidemiology; food safety; disease threats in the environment and integrated pest management and more.
