A Veterinary Perspective
The One Health approach was established to promote collaborations across disciplines on inter-connected issues across human, animal and environmental sciences.
Whilst the idea of One Health is not a new one, it has become more important in recent years, as the way we interact with other people, animals and our environment is changing. Zoonotic diseases like rabies, Q fever, and Avian Influenza can all be transmitted across species, causing a public health as well as animal health risk.
This series is a collaboration with Archives of Public Health and Microbiome, working to cover all areas of research relating to One Health. Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica focuses on One Health from a veterinary perspective, in line with our aims and scope. This includes topics such as zoonotic diseases, animals and the changing environment, foodborne diseases, antimicrobial resistance and other animal-human interactions.
