Applicants should note that the Trustees have adopted the OHHLEP definition of One Health. To ensure our Fellowships continue to embrace the breadth of this definition, and to ensure diversity of applications, the Trustees are currently performing an in depth review of our application criteria and selection processes. To avoid confusion during this review, the Trustees have decided to defer applications for 2023 Fellowships.
Applications for 2024 Soulsby Fellowships will be accepted between 1st November 2023 and midnight (GMT) 31st January 2024.
Further information and an updated Application Form will be available in due course.
“One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimise the health of people, animals and ecosystems.
It recognises the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent.
The approach mobilises multiple sectors, disciplines and communities at varying levels of society to work together to foster well-being and tackle threats to health and ecosystems, while addressing the collective need for clean water, energy and air, safe and nutritious food, taking action on climate change, and contributing to sustainable development.”
For the purposes of this funding opportunity, successful project proposals are likely to integrate knowledge of human health, animal health and ecosystem health, and to focus attention on the importance of these inter-connections. In addition to increasing understanding of zoonoses and emerging infections at the human/animal interface, the Foundation welcomes applications which consider wider issues such as socio-economic aspects and environmental impacts of One Health interventions.
