The Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) aims for an integrated One Health approach to tackle the global risk of infectious diseases. The NCOH commits to create durable solutions for this major challenge by bundling world-leading academic top research in the Netherlands in the area of One Health. This virtual science-driven institution focuses its efforts on 4 complimentary strategic research themes.
 
Initiated by Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, Wageningen University and Research Centre, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam and Academic Medical Center Amsterdam the NCOH closely collaborates with the RIVM and is open for participation by Dutch Universities, University Medical Centers, NWO and KNAW institutes, and TNO and DLO institutes.
 
The NCOH addresses four major global One Health challenges  - Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance, Emerging Infectious Diseases Preparedness, Smart and Healthy Farming, and Healthy Wildlife and Ecosystems  - from the combined One Health perspectives of public, livestock and wildlife and ecosystems health. The Strategic Research Agenda is organized into four complementary strategic themes tackling the four Grand Challenges: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID), Sustainable Healthy Farming (HF), and Healthy Wildlife & Ecosystems (HWE).
