Module: One Health
“One Health” is an integrated, unifying approach to balance and optimize the health of people, animals and the environment. It is particularly important to prevent, predict, detect, and respond to global health threats such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The approach mobilizes multiple sectors, disciplines and communities at varying levels of society to work together. This way, new and better ideas are developed that address root causes and create long-term, sustainable solutions.
One Health involves the public health, veterinary and environmental sectors. One focus area of the One Health approach is the control of zoonoses (diseases that can spread between animals and humans), such as those caused by coronaviruses, influenza, pox viruses, or bacteria of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.

Webinar: Implementation of NGS for TB- WHO documents and other considerations
This webinar will summarize the recommendations and considerations available from the WHO documents on the use of NGS for TB

Variation in the genome of M. tuberculosis (Mtb) is associated with changes in phenotype, for example drug resistance and virulence. It is also useful for outbreak investigation as the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a sample can be used to build a phylogeny.
