Summer School Principles of a Global One Health

Date: 26 June 2017 - 30 June 2017
Location: Wageningen

Considering today’s highly interactive global linkages, it is not enough to deal with single issues for single diseases. Diseases influence each other and have common drivers. Dealing with one issue has consequences for other issues, and we need to consider the interaction between e.g., human and animal diseases, the environment and human diseases, domestic animal and wildlife diseases, social changes and disease burden, economic development and diseases, and trade and diseases. The concept of Global One Health, emphasizes the interdependence of human health with the health of animals, plants and sustainable ecosystems from a global perspective. True prosperity and security will only be reached if we weigh all possible effects of interventions on the health of humans, animals, plants and the environment, while taking ecosystem sustainability into account. The Global One Health approach uses multiple disciplines to seek transnational solutions for improving the health of humans, animals and plants, and ultimately, the sustainability of the ecosystems of planet earth. Central hereby is that the Global One Health approach does not primarily aim at cure of diseases but merely at the prevention of diseases and the promotion of health.
