The health of humans, animals, plants, and ecosystems is closely interconnected. Any change in relations among them can increase the risk of new human and animal diseases developing and spreading. One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of persons, animals, and ecosystems.
