Human Glue

- David Wolking

Recently the UC Davis team was asked to present on "One Health in Action" at the University of California Global Health Institute's (UCGHI) Global Health Day.  The goal: communicating what it's like to run a project like PREDICT, a project operating in 20 countries globally, establishing a systematic yet flexible disease surveillance system for wildlife.  So what does it take?   What is the glue holding this model together?  A lot of communication...

HALI is the home of PREDICT in Tanzania, and thanks our goodwill and collaborative nature, we spend quite a bit of time communicating with our partners in the US and Tanzania.  As a tribute to human glue and the endless hours we spend on Basecamp, in Skype meetings, and through SMS and mobile phone contact keeping HALI and PREDICT moving steadily along, I put together this slide, featuring Zika our HALI coordinator for PREDICT in Tanzania, and Benard, our country coordinator for PREDICT in Uganda.

You'll be able to find the UC Davis team's presentation from Global Health Day online soon.  I'll post the link as soon as it is available.

 

Just a few communication tools we use at the HALI project...
