The Ohio State University Health Science Colleges established the One Health Ethiopia Task Force in August 2012. Our goal is to develop a sustainable and mutually beneficial partnership with Ethiopian academic and affiliate partners, especially the University of Gondar and Addis Ababa University.
Because Ohio State has seven health science colleges on one campus, unlike any other American university, we are able to offer our Ethiopian partners unprecedented interdisciplinary collaboration that results in healthier, happier, more productive lives for Ethiopia’s citizens. The work we do is also intended to be replicated elsewhere, amplifying the impact of our collaboration.
This blog features the activities of our faculty and students involved in:
- One Health Summer Institute courses taught by faculty from Ohio State’s Colleges of Veterinary Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Optometry, and Medicine;
- Ongoing research initiatives on rabies, cervical cancer and food security, including the Ohio State health sciences colleges above and the School of Environment and Natural Resources; and
- Workshops on rabies eradication, One Health partnerships, molecular epidemiology, and neurosurgery.
Our faculty and students are in Ethiopia to collaborate, educate, and inspire.
We hope you enjoy our offerings!
