One Health Day 2023

Help ISID advance a "One Health" approach to improving infectious disease policies and procedures around the world

Donate to ISID

One Health Day is a time to raise awareness of the integrated approach aiming to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems in general. The One Health approach recognizes that these are interconnected, meaning that threats to one can quickly become threats to all.

Zoonotic diseases are becoming a growing health threat worldwide, with increasing reports of outbreaks in diverse regions. The risk of emerging and reemerging disease spillover and burden has been augmented by considerable interactions among animals, humans, and ecosystems. The One Health approach is critical to addressing public health threats by integrating environmental issues. Emerging diseases such as Ebola, MERS-CoV, and COVID-19, underline the need for concerted action across sectors.

We must address the different long-term impacts on these correlations, such as in the case of antimicrobial resistance or food security, as well as the increase in different epidemiological patterns driven by factors such as climate change are crucial and important to be dealt with in such a coordinated approach within these various interfaces.

On November 3rd, join us for a one-hour online webinar, presented by leading experts and the editors of IJID One Health, the open-access journal of the ISID. This workshop promises to provide invaluable insights into the intersection of infectious diseases, animal health, human health, and the environment through a One Health lens:
