Preface

Author(s) : B. Vallat

Summary :

The One Health concept is founded on an awareness of the major opportunities that exist to protect public health through policies aimed at preventing and controlling pathogens at the level of animal populations, that is, at the interface between humans, animals and the environment. Veterinarians and animal owners have a key role to play in the implementation of these policies, as do people who regularly come into contact with wildlife and the environment, in particular those involved in fishing and hunting and managing protected areas. These policies include new mechanisms requiring stakeholders to inform one another of their activities and act in a concerted manner. They encourage animal health and environment managers to liaise with public health managers, who, whether they be state officials, local government staff or physicians in private practice, usually work under the auspices of the Ministry of Health.
