Although the term “One Health” is relatively new, the concept that human, animal, and environmental health are intertwined has long been acknowledged globally. As the environment changes and global trade systems move faster and become more intermingled, the conditions that created scenarios like the global SARS, avian flu, and swine flu outbreaks are accelerating. As a result, we will likely see more of these global health threats in the future.
