ILRI's Hung Nguyen discusses the importance of science communication in achieving One Health goals at the FAO science and innovation forum
- Impact Area
On 18 October 2022, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Wageningen University and Research (WUR) held an event titled FAO and WUR transformative partnership–communication and harnessing science effectively as part of the FAO science and innovation forum.
The event brought together a variety of experts to discuss how science communication can be improved to help individuals, groups and initiatives from different disciplines across the animal, human and environmental health sectors effectively collaborate to address One Health issues.
One of the experts invited to speak at the event was Hung Nguyen, co-leader of the Animal and Human Health program at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).
As an institution focused on both livestock and human health, ILRI is dedicated to improving One Health approaches across the developing world. For the last decade, Nguyen has been upscaling ILRI’s One Health efforts by enhancing collaboration between scientists, policymakers and communities.
