You are cordially invited to the Belgian One Health Network launch event on Tuesday 5 November at the Sciensano site in Tervuren.

This event with ‘One Health’ as its theme, is a new initiative to promote One Health and to bring together everyone who works in a One Health context in Belgium. Sciensano employees form the basis of this initiative. We discuss the One Health concept in the presence of organisations that are active in this domain in Belgium. We also highlight the cooperation and interactions between the various actors.
