Almost 500 participants visited the Expo One Health organized by ICBAS-UP, between the 2nd and 4th of November.
For the third consecutive year, the Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar (ICBAS) of the University of Porto celebrated the International One Health, now in the format of a three days exhibition dedicated to hands-on demonstration of the practical applicability of the concept, which assumes the interconnection between environmental, animal and human health. The Expo One Health brought together companies, foundations, associations and NGOs, in addition to U.Porto research units, as well as the five ICBAS teaching areas linked to environmental health, animal health, human health, biochemistry and bioengineering. The event included lectures on the topic, including that of the president of the Porto City Council, who defended the adoption of the “ One Health concept not only as a scientific approach, but also as a political approach to the climate emergency we are experiencing”.
