Today, 3 November 2019, is International One Health Day. The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in East and Southeast Asia and its partners join the rest of the world to celebrate the day by sharing (video) stories of One Health in action to draw people’s attention to the need for a One Health approach in addressing global health threats.
One Health is a collaborative, multisectoral and transdisciplinary paradigm for framing complex public health issues. Applying its approaches, which recognize the interconnection between people, animals and their shared environment contributes to improvements in animal, human and environmental health.
ILRI and its partners are using One Health approach to tackle agriculture-associated risks by promoting and facilitating transdisciplinary partnerships to improve human and animal health in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs) of East and Southeast Asia including Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.
These short videos, by ILRI and by our partners — the Vietnam One Health Partnership for Zoonoses (OHP) and the Vietnam One Health University Network (VOHUN), underscore the importance of using One Health in addressing global health threats such as antimicrobial resistance, zoonotic diseases and food safety.
