One Health

One Health is the collaborative effort of multiple disciplines to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. The One Health concept arose from the realization that human, animal, and environmental health are inextricably linked and that a holistic approach is needed to understand, protect, and promote the health of all species. One Health seeks to improve communication and encourage collaboration between veterinarians, physicians, environmental scientists, and public health professionals to find multidisciplinary solutions to shared challenges such as emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, and emergency preparedness.
