The interconnections between human, animal and environmental health


One Health is an initiative that looks at how people, animals and the environment interact, and the health impacts that each has on the others. In this webinar, researcher Dr. Baljit Singh provides a deeper insight into how One Health could improve our understanding of complex problems such as food safety, water safety, infection and disease transmission through a cross-disciplinary approach.

Co-presenter Dr. Susan Cork looks at three different case studies on vector borne diseases in Canada to illustrate the need to take a One Health approach in the face of climate change and other factors affecting in how diseases are distributed.
