Today is One Health Day! We celebrate our collaborations with 44 organisations across 22 countries, in the EU and UK, focusing on One Health research, education and training.
One Health Day promotes efforts around the world to bring together all human, animal, and environmental health disciplines – an international campaign by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative and the One Health Platform Foundation. The goal of One Health Day is to bring attention around the world to the need for One Health interactions and for the world to “see them in action.”
One Health recognises the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants and the wider environment are closely linked and inter-dependent. So, the study of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance that may cross species and environmental barriers is imperative. Over the last 5 years, our Consortium has facilitated transdisciplinary and cross-sector research collaborations to better prevent, predict, detect, and respond to the global health threats of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), foodborne and emerging zoonotic diseases. We have achieved a great deal in this relatively short time, to advance the One Health approach. We look forward to seeing the impacts of our work for the future of One Health.
Thanks to all our partners for their collaboration and coordination to make the One Health EJP so successful. Let us celebrate One Health Day together!
