Abstract
One Health is "the collaborative effort of multiple disciplines - working locally, nationally, and globally - to attain optimal health for people, animals and the environment". One Health is a new phrase, but the concept extends back to ancient times. The recognition that environmental factors can impact human health can be traced as far back as to the Greek physician Hippocrates (c. 460 BCE - c. 370 BCE) in his text "On Airs, Waters, and Places". He promoted the concept that public health depended on a clean environment. "One Health" was mentioned in a story about Ebola hemorrhagic fever on April 7, 2003, when Rick Weiss of the Washington Post quoted William Karesh as saying, "Human or livestock or wildlife health can't be discussed in isolation anymore. There is just one health. And the solutions require everyone working together on all the different levels." "One Health" is an important global activity based on the concept that human, animal and environmental/ecosystem health are interdependent, and professionals working in these areas best serve the population by collaborating to better understand all the factors involved in disease transmission, ecosystem health, the emergence of novel pathogens and emerging zoonotic agents, as well as environmental contaminants and toxins that are capable of causing substantial morbidity and mortality, and impacting on socioeconomic growth, including in less developed countries. In another definition, the One Health Initiative Task Force (OHITF) defines one health as "the promotion, improvement, and defense for the health and well-being of all species by enhancing cooperation and collaboration between physicians, veterinarians, and other scientific health professionals and by promoting strengths in leadership and management to achieve these goals." By reviewing several documents including scientific papers, government documents, and other written resources this paper proposes the PRECEDE-PROCEED MODEL, a model to resolve the problems posed by the interaction between humans and animals.
