One Health is the collaborative effort of multiple health science professions, together with their related disciplines and institutions – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, plants, and our environment.
One Health Day is an international campaign co-coordinated by the One Health Commission. 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.” The One Health Day campaign is designed to engage as many individuals as possible from as many arenas as possible in One Health education and awareness events, and to generate an inspiring array of projects worldwide.
The Wisconsin One Health Forum connects UW faculty, staff, students, community members, government organizations, and private enterprises by facilitating open, inclusive dialogue about emerging health issues in all sectors. We aim not to reinvent the wheel, but to foster creativity and cooperation to better protect the health of all members of our global community by acknowledging and acting on the inextricable link between the health of humans, animals, and environments.
