Introduction

More than 60% of human infectious diseases and more than 70% of emerging infectious diseases (Zika, Chikungunya, Hanta, West Nile Fever, among others), have an animal origin (zoonoses), including known large pandemics, such such as Avian / Swine Influenza, SARS, HIV / AIDS, and now COVID-19. These pathogens spill over from animal to human populations through human contact with wild animals, productive domestic animals, and their ecosystem.

The Magister One Health - One Health, is based on this interdisciplinary approach that originates in the link and interconnection that exists between the human population, animal populations and the environment where they live. This concept was conceived to design and implement programs, policies, laws and research in which multiple sectors communicate effectively and collaborate, across cultures and educational backgrounds, to achieve better public health outcomes. This program addresses a wide range of topics under the One Health approach and provides a foundation in disease principles in the context of ecological, sociological systems, global health (human and animal), and food safety and security.
