  2. Outline and objectives • Review OIE emphasis on continuing education (CE) and One Health • Overview of continuing education in the OIE Region of Middle East • Opportunities for greater incorporation of One Health approaches in CE

  3. While not a new concept, the OIE endorses the “One Health” approach as a collaborative and all-encompassing way to address, when relevant, animal and public health globally. This collaboration should not be limited to only the international level, but must be translated as a new and fundamental paradigm at national levels. From the OIE Website

  4.
