From Silos to Synergy: The Potential for “One Health” to Address Inequalities – Lessons from Uganda and the Global Level
November 1 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health (IIGH) invites you to join us for “From Silos to Synergy: The Potential for ‘One Health’ to Address Inequalities – Lessons from Uganda and the Global Level” on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 9:00 am PT/12:00 pm ET/7:00 pm EAT.
Described as “an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems”, One Health recognizes that our health as humans is inextricably intertwined with that of our planet and its other inhabitants. One Health provides an approach for understanding and addressing existential threats such as climate change, pandemics and food insecurity.
This panel will explore the nature of inequalities at the human-animal interface, unpacking not only which populations are most affected in different places but also the drivers of these disproportionate risks. Panelists will draw on lessons from their work at the global level as well as national and community level work in Uganda, bringing an inequalities lens to help understand how One Health can help mitigate against these injustices.
Panelists for the discussion include:
- Douglas Webb, Global Health and Environment Advisor, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
- Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, Founder and CEO, Conservation Through Public Health
- Julius Lutwama, Senior Principal Research Officer with the Ministry of Health, Uganda Virus Research Institute
This conversation will be moderated by IIGH Research Director Laura Ferguson with opening remarks by IIGH Director Sofia Gruskin.
