“Working Together for One Health –-- One Health is the idea that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. Learn why One Health is important and how, by working together, we can achieve the best health for everyone.”

One Health - https://www.cdc.gov/onehealth/index.html

One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. It 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.

A One Health approach is important because 6 out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are spread from animals.

Federation of European Micrbiological Societies (FEMS) Endorses One Health concept/approach - Sunday, November 10, 2019

international efforts in campaign for sustainable environment.international efforts in campaign for sustainable environment.

FEMS endorses the One Health Initiative (OHI). FEMS strongly supports the OHI and the call for increased collaboration between the human and veterinary medical communities. Many of our members look forward to seeing more interactions and partnerships between physicians, veterinarians and scientific researchers.  Such collaboration could help find responses to serious societal challenges, such as emerging infectious diseases, pandemics and the transmission of Antimicrobial Resistance. Also, it is crucial for our health and the health of the planet to build a better understanding around the role and fate of microbes and viruses in the biotic and abiotic environment. OHI can show the way to a healthy future. Please see: https://fems-microbiology.org/about_fems/network-and-activities/campaigns/one-health/

Celebrate One Health Day with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - November 3, 2019 - Wednesday, October 30, 2019

What's New In One Health

Celebrate One Health Day with CDC

 

 

November 3, 2019, marks the fourth annual One Health Day, a global campaign to bring attention to the need for a One Health approach to address health threats shared among people, animals, and the environment. One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. 


A One Health approach can address public health concerns like zoonotic diseases, antibiotic resistance, food safety, vector-borne diseases, environmental health, and much more. Successful One Health efforts require a team approach involving professionals from human, animal, and environmental health, as well as other areas like agriculture and policy. Working together allows us to have the biggest impact on improving health for all.
