One Health: Activities and Achievements (2017-19)
Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG)
The One Health process advances a multidisciplinary approach to health risks for humans, animals, plants and the environment. During the U.S. Chairmanship (2015-17) of the Arctic Council, the U.S. and Canada introduced a One Health project designed to strengthen regional knowledge sharing and coordination regarding a variety of Arctic One Health concerns, such as infectious and vector borne diseases, water and food safety, environmental contamination, and changes in animal species distribution. The project advances operational One Health networks in the region by promoting knowledge sharing, exercises, and collaborative investigations of One Health phenomena.
