2018 CUGH Conference – One Health Session  


Outside the Box: Addressing the Sustainable Development Goals Through a One Health Approach

The Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) hosted a series of satellite sessions on March 15, 2018, as a pre-conference added value. Presented by the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University Global HealthUC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, and VetAgroSup, this half-day session explored how true interdisciplinary thinking and action addresses the challenges of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals extend beyond traditional health metrics to incorporate educational opportunity, gender equity, and environmental sustainability.  Meeting these goals requires integrated approaches with a clear focus on outcome metrics—“we measure what we value”.
