What is ‘One Health’?

A One Health approach promotes collaboration, communication, and coordination among healthcare providers across human, animal, and environmental health to enhance the well-being of both people and animals. At the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, we can better prepare our health professions students to address the complex healthcare problems that society and the planet face by raising awareness of the One Health approach. An interprofessional approach extending to experts in fields such as public health, veterinary medicine, and climate science is necessary. We must work together to gain insights into and address health threats from the spread of diseases to pollution to global warming and beyond
