Part of the One Health approach for Global Healthy Water series.
The way mankind is facing the challenges of the world's water and food supply have had a major impact on human, animal and environmental health. The emergence of pandemics, burnings and multi-resistant bacteria is directly related to poor water and ecosystem management. The One Health concept emerges as an efficient alternative to address these problems.
One Health is a "collaborative effort of multiple fields—working locally, nationally, and globally—to achieve an ideal health for people, animals, and environment".
These interdisciplinary teams work together to effectively detect, respond, and prevent outbreaks of zoonoses, food safety problems, antimicrobial resistance, among others global threats.
