A One Health Partnership

The Ohio State Health Sciences Ethiopia-One Health partnership is running its summer institute. Fifteen Ohio State faculty members and five students are participating in this activity. The institute is mainly supported by funding from the Ethiopian partners. Currently, faculty members from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Baye Molla, and from the College of Nursing, Usha Menon, Jodi Ford, Jennifer Kue and Tim Landers, are teaching students in several courses. These doctors are also conducting pilot studies on rabies. Please follow the summer institute activities via the blog: Ohio State Ethiopia - A One Health Partnership.

The Ohio State University Health Science Colleges established the One Health Ethiopia Task Force in August 2012. The goal is to develop a sustainable and mutually beneficial partnership with Ethiopian academic and affiliate partners, especially the University of Gondar and Addis Ababa University.

Because Ohio State has seven health science colleges on one campus, unlike any other American university, the university is able to offer Ethiopian partners unprecedented interdisciplinary collaboration that results in healthier, happier, more productive lives for Ethiopia’s citizens. The work is also intended to be replicated elsewhere, amplifying the impact of the collaboration.
