One Health

Connecting Human, Animal, Plant, and Ecosystem Health

A Comprehensive Approach To Health

One Health brings together people with diverse backgrounds, skills, and perspectives to improve the health of humans, animals (wild and domestic), plants and our shared environments.

In our increasingly connected world, we are becoming more aware of the links among human, animal, plant, and ecosystem health. Stories of these connections are now common in our news and conversations…an emerging disease moving from wildlife to people or appearing in a new part of the world, drastic loss of the bees that pollinate many crops, pollutants in our wetlands and waterways, or an earthquake or hurricane that displaces people and animals, limiting access to food and clean water. To understand and address complex health challenges, we need human and animal health professionals, environmental scientists, economists, artists, government agencies, community members, and others working together.
