One Health

 

What is One Health?

One Health is a collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary approach — working at the local, regional, national, and global levels — with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.

The areas of work in which a One Health approach is particularly relevant to the control of diseases that can spread between animals and humans, such as the Coronavirus, Ebola, tuberculosis, rabies and more.

How does a One Health approach work?

One Health is recognized globally as an effective way to fight health issues at the human-animal-environment interface. Many organizations like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention CDC and the World Health Organization WHO use a One Health approach by involving experts in human, animal, environmental health, plus other relevant disciplines and sectors in monitoring and controlling public health threats and to learn how diseases spread among people, animals, and the environment.

 

Successful public health interventions require the cooperation of human, animal, and environmental health partners. Professionals in human health, animal health, and environmental experts communicate, collaborate, and coordinate activities.
