As Zika spreads to the U.S., climate change becomes a daily reality, and the presence of antibiotic resistance becomes a threat to human health, the One Health movement has emerged to help us understand how it all fits together. One Health looks at the relationship between human, animal, and ecosystem health and offers the potential for dramatic progress if the health professions work together to address these issues.
Please join us in celebrating National Public Health Week (NPHW) today through April 13. For nearly two decades, NPHW has raised awareness of the important role public health plays in keeping communities both healthy and safe. This year’s theme is “Public Health: Start Here.”
