One Health and the neglected zoonoses: turning rhetoric into reality

Anna L Okello, E Paul J Gibbs, Alain Vandersmissen, Susan C Welburn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Successful adoption of a One Health approach could have far-reaching impacts on poverty alleviation, health and food security, particularly in developing countries through integrated control of neglected zoonoses. However, the practical implementation of this approach presents many challenges. Anna Okello and colleagues argue that, for effective implementation, lessons learned and 'best practice' must be led by national and regional stakeholders drawn from a variety of disciplines. High-profile regional and international institutions can play an important role in the global governance of One Health by encouraging individual countries to devise appropriate tailored solutions that are workable within their own context.
