Introducing healthy, sustainable food choices. Discovering new viruses before they make the jump from animals to humans. Protecting water sources. Contributing to a safer and more equitable world for all.
These are the ways in which the concept of One Health makes a difference in our lives, the life around us and the planet. This is the idea that the health of humans, animals and the planet are tied together, and we must see them as a whole.
Human health depends on animal health depends on planetary health and vice versa.
One Health calls for collaboration. Between human health care providers, entomologists, engineers, sociologists, dairy and nutrition experts, climate scientists, public health practitioners and more.
Addressing the determinants of health and disease. Learning from communities and colleagues. Sharing knowledge. Finding solutions. Living the Wisconsin Idea.
