Inhalt Environmental effects on the risk of infectious diseases are not new. Micro- and macro parasites share many fundamental properties with humans and animals. Hence, an ecological perspective is appropriate for understanding and controlling infectious diseases. Ecological thinking recognises the importance of fundamental physical, chemical and biological processes that affect the survival and reproduction of all living organisms. These include evolutionary, social, economic and political processes. Theoretical concepts move from “One Health”, which emphasises close cooperation of human and animal health interventions, to broader considerations of health in social-ecological systems.
Theoretical lectures and group work are combined with presentations from ongoing research projects on avian influenza, rabies, bovine tuberculosis, brucellosis and anthrax of the human and animal health research group at Swiss TPH. In this year, individual students are invited to contribute to a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on One Health.
Lernziele To provide insight into the ecology of infectious diseases in Africa to students of African Studies; to provide insight into the impact of disease on sustainable development to students of Sustainable Development; to provide background on environmental determinants of disease to students in Epidemiology.
Bemerkungen Methods: Lectures, peer group work
