  • Abstract:

    There are significant opportunities for improving human, animal, and environmental health by adopting a One Health approach. One Health approaches are likely to have a major impact on public health, with a focus on surveillance and upstream interventions that are likely to reap obvious and rapid benefits for the health of human populations. However, despite the obvious benefits, the barriers to achieving a comprehensive One Health approach are formidable given that education, research, diagnostics, surveillance, and funding for human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental health often exist as separate silos with limited exchange. These barriers must be overcome if the benefits of One Health are to be realized.
