One Health Knowledge-Café - Webinar Series#1
The "One Health Knowledge Café" is one of the chosen projects of the One Health Funds 2020. It is a collaborative effort of more than 11 individuals representing the partners and alumni of the Center for International Health (CIHLMU) from Asia, Africa, Europe, South America and North America. The project aims to enhance the academic network of CIHLMU experts, partners, alumni and students by organizing monthly virtual webinars, sharing sessions and offering an online course.
The COVID-19 pandemic affected all countries worldwide, limiting people’s ability to travel and meet face to face. Hence, the importance of virtual learning and networking increased enormously.
On 31 July 2020, the One Health Knowledge Café Team organized the first webinar on “COVID-19 Situation, Responses and Lessons Learned”. This session brought together experts from Bolivia, Germany, Ghana and Nepal to share their country specific situation and responses to COVID-19 and contribute in the effort of combatting the problem of COVID-19 by establishing better linkages with researchers, professionals and experts from different countries and fields.
The webinar’s focus was to:
Share the current situation of COVID-19, country response and lessons learnedReview and discuss key lessons learned for the global health communityEstablish a better network to promote learning and collaboration among CIHLMU partners, alumni and beyond
More than 80 participants from 20 countries worldwide joined the webinar. It was a great success!
