One Health Program

About One Health Program

The One Health approach is looking at the interaction and linkages between human, animal and environmental health in order to address diseases particularly the one that are spread from animals to humans.

One of the major focus in this area is Anti-Microbial Resistance commonly referred to as AMR. In this area, KEMRI is working together with the government and the animal sector to understand the impact of microbial resistance in animals and its risk factors in humans. The goal of One Health approach is to ensure that the country is responding to these concerns.
