Women for One Health

Chairs: Séverine THYS & Erwan SACHET (CIRAD, ASTRE)

Round table
The objective of this session is to initiate a discussion among the broad community of professionals associated with the Institutions for Tropical Veterinary Medicine of AITVM and STVM. The discussion will focus on the challenges encountered by women in the field of Veterinary Tropical Medicine and One Health, and how taking into account the gender perspective could help address these challenges.

To feed the round table discussion, two One Health networks will present how the gender perspective is integrated and translated into actions and filled the gender gaps:

  • WfOH (Women for One Health) by Chadia WANNOUS (WOAH - One Health Global Coordinator, France)
  • NEOH (Network for Ecohealth and One Health) by Julie GARNIER (Co-Founder & Trustee Odyssey Conservation Trust)
  • Gender considerations in innovation platforms in the livestock sector in Mali by Sadio BA GNING (Université Gaston Berger, Senegal)

To animate the discussion the panel will be composed by the presenters and two additional key personalities:

  • Brigitte BAGNOL (Tufts University, USA)
  • Ard NIJHOF (STVM President, Germany)
