Why focus on One Health?

With a One Health research approach, focus is on the interface between animal health, human health and ecosystem health. A collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach, cutting across these boundaries is needed to understand complex health challenges; for example the spread of disease and antimicrobial resistance, how human health can benefit from exposure to animals, green environments and nature, and about common lifestyle diseases in animals and humans.

SLU Future One Health supports interdisciplinary research in the area of One Health by creating meeting places for researchers, communicating research results and being active in the public debate.
