The One Health Concept

The One Health Concept

The One Health concept is gathering momentum and is a concept which highlights the linkages between humans, animals and their environment. Nothing can be seen to be operating in isolation, and disease and health are linked across all three areas. As veterinarians, we have traditionally concentrated on preventing and curing diseases in animals, but it is becoming increasingly important for us to work with other professionals in all areas so that health is seen as a “global concept”. It is important for us to begin to understand  the interactions between animal and human health and how a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach could help to solve emerging global problems.
