A "One Health" approach to animal and human wellbeing in rural and peri-urban disadvantaged communities in Sao Paulo
Professor Alasdair Cook
Professor of Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health
Alasdair “Alex” Cook is a veterinary epidemiologist with more than 25 years national and international experience in livestock animal health in Government, academic and development environments. His interest in epidemiology grew from working in farm animal veterinary practice in the UK and in preventive veterinary medicine. A decade of overseas experience in Yemen, Zambia and Mexico working with poor rural communities underlined the important role that veterinary epidemiology plays in supporting animals in sustainable livelihoods and poverty alleviation. A professional life engaged with and leading multi-disciplinary teams makes Alasdair a natural proponent of the One Health perspective.
