One Health

 

The concept of One Health recognizes that human-animal-environmental health are interrelated, and thus human health is highly dependent on environmental and animal health. Our long-term and mixed-methods research aims to identify common risk factors to inform evidence-based interventions targeting human, animal, and/or environmental health for the benefit of One Health. We recognize that public health concerns do not always align with the needs of local people, and our projects involve communities to help identify "win-wins" for individual and public health.
