One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. The goal of One Health is to encourage the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines-working locally, nationally, and globally-to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment.
A One Health approach is important because 6 out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are spread from animals.
