One Health EcoHealth 2016

One Health Ecohealth

The benefits to bringing the One Health and EcoHealth communities together are twofold.
Together, we’re focused on improving global health and the health of our people, animals and ecosystems.  We do this by promoting more effective and balanced coordination and collaboration across sectors and disciplines in ways that better integrate the knowledge and perspectives of researchers, policy makers, practitioners and affected communities.
We also share research evidence, knowledge and insights on global health challenges and risks that originate at the human-animal-ecosystems interface (and the social and ecological drivers of risk), approaches and tools to reduce the risks, and benefits, costs and limitations of One Health and EcoHealth approaches.

Our Congress objectives include:
Showcasing how One Health and EcoHealth approaches are contributing to more effective responses to global health challenges.
Sharing research on strategies, approaches and tools to understand and reduce global health risks. Areas of focus are cross-sectoral collaboration at the human, animal and ecosystem interface and the development of integrated approaches to health within the context of social-ecological systems.
Presenting practical examples of how the integration of research evidence, professional expertise and community experience is protecting and promoting public, animal and ecosystem health, and social and economic development.
Creating a platform for ongoing dialogue and collaborative action among researchers, policy makers and practitioners, and among the global One Health and EcoHealth communities.
Enabling inclusive participation of delegates from diverse backgrounds.
