One Health at UCalgary (OH@UC) was founded in 2019 as an emerging, cross-cutting research theme that takes a systems view of complex problems, recognizing interconnections of people and animals in their shared environments. The One Health lens encompasses the social, economic, cultural, physical, built and political environments that can either promote or inhibit wellness. This approach uses innovative strategies to meet the needs of today’s and future generations by respecting nature, environmental limits and social justice.”
