In this article, the latest in Veterinary Records series promoting One Health, Sarah Cleaveland and her colleagues at the University of Glasgow discuss why integrated strategies are needed to enhance the cost effectiveness of measures to control and eliminate rabies, particularly in low-income countries AS One Health becomes more widely advocated, particularly within the veterinary profession, practitioners are coming under increasing scrutiny to demonstrate the added value of these approaches. Despite an intuitive appreciation that complex health problems need to be tackled through an integration of the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches that define One Health, there still remains a need to generate quantitative and qualitative evidence to clearly demonstrate these benefits (Okello and others 2011, Zinsstag and others 2011, Häsler and others 2012, Gibbs 2014). One Health encompasses a wide variety of disease and health problems; however, zoonoses have always been an area of interest and, of these, rabies provides an exemplar of the benefits of a One Health approach. In this paper, we outline how One Health has underpinned successful rabies control programmes, and why integrated approaches are likely to be essential to enhance the cost-effectiveness of control and elimination measures, particularly in low-income countries.
