What is One Health?


One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals and ecosystems. It recognizes the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent.

What we do


Through cross-sectoral cooperation, collaborative approach, scientific research, and advocacy efforts, the global One Health Community strives for improving the health and well-being of humans, animals and their environments.

Our mission is to address pressing health threats, such as zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance, by promoting knowledge dissemination and stakeholder communication, as well as fostering the next generation of experts in the field.

Who we are


The global One Health Community is a unique independent and global community gathering One Health voices. It was founded in 2015 at the third international One Health Congress in Amsterdam, under the name One Health Platform. In 2022, it changed its name and extended its vision to an all-encompassing participation, towards a global One Health Community.

Its Management and Scientific Advisory Boards are composed of renowned experts in various fields of health, including human, animal, and environmental health. They provide valuable guidance and expertise to the organization, ensuring that all decisions and policies are evidence-based and grounded in sound scientific principles.

Ensure the tradition of the One Health Community in the future
