In the month of September 2015, the student club in Tanzania organized workshop focused on capacity building teaching pupils in primary schools of Kilosa District, Morogoro region on the emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases. This was a response from a baseline survey conducted in 2013 by One Health Central and Eastern Africa (OHCEA) to establish the status of interaction between humans, livestock and wildlife, the health status of the children under the age of 5 as well as the environmental health.
