One Health Collaborating Center Universitas Gadjah Mada proudly present “Komodo and Wildlife One Health Online Summer Course 2021”. The summer course is implemented to improve knowledge and skills in zoonotic disease identification especially from komodo dragon using One Health approach. Lectures will be given by international speakers from Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, and USA. We also provide practical session with group discussion, group work & presentation, and virtual visit to Komodo National Park!

This program is open for all students and professionals from Indonesia and abroad. Veterinary sciences, animal sciences, forestry, biology, agriculture, geography, and any subject related are welcome.
