Project Duration: Wednesday, 26 September to Saturday, 6 October
One Health (OH) is a novel approach in biomedical research and practice that perceives human health, non-human animal health, and environmental health as inextricably interdependent. It strives to benefit humans, non-human animals and ecosystems by an interdisciplinary, national and international collaboration. Numerous organisations around the world have adopted the One Health approach, including the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control, the Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, the Australian Society for Microbiology, and an alliance between the American Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association. OH covers several topics, all currently pertinent to individual and public health: food security and safety, effects of climate change, comparative medicine, pet-assisted therapy, and control of infectious diseases.
