A ONE HEALTH Virtual Centre that links academic and research institutions in Southern Africa, which deal with infectious diseases of humans and animals, in an innovative partnership with world-renowned centres of research in high income countries.

Especially the University of London Colleges that constitute the London International Development Centre (LIDC) including the Royal Veterinary College – RVC – and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine -LSHTM. Other partnerships include collaboration with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), other institutions in the USA, UK, Europe, Brazil and Asia.
