Ohio State’s Global One Health initiative (GOHi) is an interdisciplinary project that coordinates approaches to improve health, build capacity and provide learning opportunities for students, faculty and staff across the globe. 

The Global One Health initiative began in 2009 and has successfully expanded to help those in need nationally, in eastern Africa, Central and South America, Thailand and China. Already well established in eastern Africa, Ohio State opened a regional office in Addis Ababa in November 2016 to manage activities throughout the region. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on November 11 to celebrate GOHi’s registration as a non-governmental organization by the Ethiopian Charities and Societies Agency.

The office will serve as a central foundational location to coordinate efforts between Ohio State and the eastern Africa region, with a focus primarily on One Health activities.
