WHAT IS ONE HEALTH?
One Health is a collaborative, multi-sectoral and trans-disciplinary approach – working at local, regional, national, and global levels – to achieve optimal health and well-being outcomes recognizing the interconnections between people, animals, plants and their shared environment.
ONE HEALTH and the UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH
Within One Health, University of Guelph researchers work across disciplines and sectors to interrogate the biological and social factors that impinge on the health of organisms, from the level of molecules to that of ecosystems, with unique strengths in comparative medicine. This research also explores how these factors are shaped by environmental parameters, such as climate change, ultimately informing public health and environmental health practice and policy.
