"The One Health concept works at the interconnection of three domains:  human, animal, and environmental health. One Health presents a more holistic view of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) mission. The FDA's efforts to improve health go beyond recognizing disease transmission through an isolated lens of human health and acknowledge human-animal interactions and associated environmental factors. The One Health concept's convergence already exists in the FDA's mission statement when considering the Agency's responsibilities and authorities. The Agency fulfills its mission to benefit both people and animals by ensuring the safety and efficacy of regulated products such as food or feed, drugs, devices, and human biologics. It regulates the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of regulated products to ensure that safety and quality standards are met that benefit both people and animals. The Agency utilizes a multidisciplinary and multisectoral approach to gathering data that enhances more informed, evidence-based regulatory decisions when establishing standards and guidance. Last but not least, FDA coordinates regulatory pathway measures fostering the advancement of medical countermeasures that diagnose, prevent, protect, and treat conditions derived from intentional or unintentional emerging threats for chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear materials. These threats hold no boundaries and can adversely impact people and animals alike. ..."
