The One Health concept promotes an integrative approach to public health, reflecting the interconnectedness of a larger ecological system. It is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of healthcare for humans, animals and the environment.
The synergy achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, improving medical education and clinical care, and ensuring water and food safety and security with innovative and sustainable agriculture. Thus, following the One Health concept results in a more resilient, safer world for all. Integrative components of One Health are: Human Health, Animal Health, Environmental Health, Food Safety & Security, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH), Agriculture, Global Change & Sustainable Development
