One Health


As the human health and animal health are getting more and more interdependent, CityU adopts and promotes the “One Health” approach to design measures to safeguard public health and to respond to this global challenge. Under the overarching theme of One Health, CityU aims to develop and integrate interdisciplinary, problem-based research collaborations and communications in all aspects of health-related issues.
