One Health: Humans, Animals & Environment
Taking a full systems approach to addressing a problem as complex as a global pandemic may at first glance appear to be an unmountable task. However, it may also be one of the most intuitive ways to simultaneously protect and promote human, animal and environmental health.
We have all become too familiar with the reality that one solution may cause trade-offs and create problems somewhere else. This is why a One Health approach that attempts to grapple with complex challenges through a holistic lens shows promise in identifying solutions that can benefit us, animals, and the environment.
In this newsletter we share what we have been reading, watching, and following to learn more about how a One Health approach can help us understand our current crisis, while also enabling us to plan and be prepared for future threats to ours and planetary health.
Wishing you good health.
