Abstract:

The term “One Health” describes a discipline, a theory, and a way of thinking that bring together human, animal, and environmental health. A majority of infectious diseases critical to food safety in humans are zoonoses. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that scientists estimate that more than 6 out of every 10 known infectious diseases in people are spread from animals and that 3 out of every 4 new or emerging infectious diseases in people are spread from animals (https://www.cdc.gov/onehealth/index.html). Through the broad One Health concept, scientists can probe solutions and develop a better understanding of how to address the growing problems concerning human medicine, animal medicine, and environmental sciences. Educational advances in One Health are occurring quickly through many undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs across agricultural sciences and veterinary medicine, as well as in public and human health. Traditionally, human health has been managed separately from animal health, and the health of the environment has been considered less than the latter. This is even more true in the recent past given the increase in specializations in human medicine, such as personalized medicine. Large government agencies and numerous private programs and companies work to protect human and animal health; therefore, clinicians, veterinarians, and environmentalists must all join together to fully address One Health.
