The International Symposium "One Health Methods and Scientific Projects in Thailand and Southeast Asia" co-hosted by IRD and Mahidol University gathered about 50 participants from IRD, Thai and international institutions. The event allowed the various scientists attending to present their research to the audience but above all to exchange on the research currently carried out around the One Health theme.

Hoping that these exchanges of experiences will lead to a strengthening of interdisciplinary collaborations on the "One Health" theme between local, regional and international institutions.
