One Health

Posted in Fact Sheets

With increasing awareness of the inter-relatedness of human and veterinary health as well as the ecosystem, a collaborative initiative is underway incorporating veterinarians, physicians, public and environmental health experts, and researchers to advance health care across all areas. Veterinary pathologists, with unique expertise in comparative and translational medicine, have an important role in One Health.
