The visit was one of the many events conducted during One Health, a two-week military and civil health partnership program designed to strengthen Uganda's health care and recognizes the health of nations, humans, animals and ecosystems are interconnected. Overall, One Health is a joint venture coordinated by the Ugandan government; UPDF; U.S. Agency for International Development; U.S. State Department; U.S Embassy in Uganda; and CJTF-HOA. Nagai is expected to return to full health in one week. (Photo by Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Tom Ouellette)
