One Health summer institute which is a tri-party partnership program established between Ohio State University, Addis Ababa University and University of Gondar (UoG) has consecutively been successful in catching international recognition, since its establishment three years ago. This year’s, 2015 Andrew Hesikell honorable mention award it receives recently is one of them. Thus, Uog like its other two partners of the one health summer institute is honored in receiving this international award. It is also proud of being part of this successful partnership program.
As can be witnessed from UoG’s side, the summer institute was effective in conducting as much as five training programs in this season only.
