The Netherlands Center for One Health (NCOH) with the KNAW presents a colloquium on 'One Health Approach to Infectious Diseases'. This colloquium brings experts in the field of One Health together to provide an interdisciplinary perspective required to develop and implement durable intervention strategies for infectious diseases.

Many global challenges pose a risk to humans, animals, and the environment. An integrated perspective, a One Health approach, to tackle these challenges is required to generate successful solutions.
