One Health

A global, holistic approach to major health-related challenges

One Health is a recent global movement that promotes networked, ecological thinking about health. It recognises that the health of humans, animals, other organisms and the environment are inextricably linked. Addressing the major health challenges posed by the complex interactions between humans, animals, plants and their animal ecosystems requires recalibrating existing conceptual and methodological repertoires and strengthening multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral collaboration. Una Europa's approach to One Health aims to promote and consolidate research, education and societal awareness among European and international partners to understand, integrate and act on the complexity of health, social and environmental determinants. We advocate a comprehensive, holistic and long-term approach to major health challenges, ultimately promoting the well-being of people and animals in a sustainable and healthy environment.
