One Health is an approach to public health recognizing the interconnectedness of humans, animals, and the environment. One Health is not new, but it has become a more recognized way to address complicated public health problems.

One Health Day is celebrated globally each year on 3 November. How can YOUR installation get involved and educate YOUR community on One Health?

1. Coordinate a team to help with communicating the concepts of One Health.

2. Collaborate together for potential events, presentations and messaging.

The Army Public Health Center’s (APHC) One Health Week (OHW) has three lines of effort, or themes, to assist in planning events incorporating “One Health for a Bright Future”.

One Health at Home. Encourage healthy living by promoting human, environmental, and animal health at home.

One Health on the Installation. Support the health of the Warfighter and their community by highlighting the One Health assets available on the installation. One Health Partners may include: Veterinary Services, Preventive Medicine, Entomology, Environmental Health, Public Health Nursing, and others.

One Health in Action. Enhance One Health collaborative relationships to strengthen public health activities in support of the Warfighter and their community. Event ideas could include conducting joint environmental sampling and vector/animal surveillance, or hosting a recycling day to collect household hazards, electronics, medicines, etc.
