European Commission DG SANTE One Health Conference

One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimise the health of people, animals and ecosystems. It recognises that the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and interdependent.

COVID-19 made it unmistakably clear that human, animal, plant and environmental health cannot be dealt with separately, but need to be addressed in a ‘One Health’ approach. Mainstreaming ‘One Health’ means that we can better prevent, predict, prepare for, detect, and respond to global health threats at both regional and global levels.

In view of this, the European Commission Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) held the ‘One Health for All, All for One Health Conference ’ on the 13th of November, 2023 to take stock of progress and initiatives thus far and to discuss the future of One Health in Europe. Kristy Marr, Scientific Programme Officer at the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Development Hub, attended the conference in Luxembourg and also met the former Director of the Hub, Elmar Nimmesgern, with whom she is pictured above.

Presentations, speaker biographies, video recordings and resources relating to the conference can all be found at the DG SANTE site here.
