Animal disease detectives
APCOVE helps to train animal disease detectives to protect both animal and human health.
Animal disease detectives conduct animal disease surveillance so that diseases are detected early on before they get a chance to spread.
Animal disease detectives investigate outbreaks to identify the source of each outbreak and to contain its spread.
We believe that the health of animals, humans and the environment is interlinked. Therefore, we aim to eliminate siloed approaches to dealing with health issues at the human-animal-environment interface.
One Health recognises interconnections between humans, animals and the shared environment, and focusses on dealing with health issues holistically through collaboration.
We work with animal and public health organisations in the Asia Pacific region to develop the knowledge and skills of veterinarians in One Health. This will better enable them to work with diverse teams involving people from public health and wildlife health, to improve communication and policy for disease investigation and surveillance.
