One Health

Introduction

The One Health Initiative is an all-inclusive collaboration between medical practitioners in both human and animal health alongside other scientific and environmentally related disciplines. More than 700 prominent physicians, veterinarians, researchers, as well as communications and social science scholars worldwide have endorsed the action-oriented effort.

There is a critical, global need for a One World, One Health concept stemming in part from divisions between human medical and veterinary medicine practitioners, food transport and security systems, and environmental challenges, which have hampered care delivery, educational programs, communication campaigns, and public health systems.

Michigan State University will help lead to bridge these divides. Our aim is knowledge-based, collaborative advocacy for optimal health through an integrated approach that will improve upon current health disparities and inequities.

The One Health global strategy provides a roadmap for understanding and administering a practical, hands-on One Health approach. It invites participation in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations in order to provide a better quality of life worldwide.
