One Health Day 2020

by Public Health Update

One Health Day is observed annually on 3 November. One Health Day is an international, global campaign coordinated by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team and the One Health Platform Foundation.

One health

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.

Goal

The goal of One Health Day is to raise awareness about the One Health approach to complex health problems involving people, animals and the environment. In as many countries as possible, activities and events will give scientists,
practitioners, educators and advocates a powerful, unified voice for moving beyond current provincial approaches to emerging infectious diseases, food safety and security, antimicrobial resistance, invasive species, environmental pollution, loss of biodiversity, and many other problems.

The One Health Day raises awareness about the One Health approach. Activities and events around the world will give scientists, practitioners and advocates a powerful, unified voice for moving beyond current provincial approaches to emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, climate change, environmental pollution, and many other problems, to a holistic, trans-disciplinary default way of doing business.

Why one health

  • Worldwide, nearly 75 percent of all emerging human infectious diseases in the past three decades originated in animals.
  • Environmental health may affect human and animal health through contamination, pollution and poor conditions that may lead to new infectious agents.
  • The world population is projected to grow from 7 billion in 2011 to 9 billion by 2050.
  • To provide adequate healthcare, food and water for the growing global population, the health professions, and their related disciplines and institutions, must work together.
  • The human-animal bond beneficially impacts the health of both people and animals.

Key Message

One Health Day answers the urgent need for a One Health trans-disciplinary approach towards solving today’s critical global health challenges. It is a timely initiative that gives scientists and advocates a powerful voice for moving beyond current provincial approaches to emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, climate change, environmental pollution, and many other problems, to a holistic default way of doing business.
