Introduction to One Health: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Planetary Health offers an accessible, readable introduction to the burgeoning field of One Health. One Health is the collaborative effort of multiple disciplines--working locally, nationally, and globally--to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. The book provides a clear understanding of One Health--what it is, why it is important for planetary health, and how one may be a part of it. Thoroughly explaining both basic fundamentals and real-world applications, it surveys One Health from the lens of varied disciplines, and offers case studies to demonstrate how the principles apply. 

Divided into 15 chapters covering several overarching themes, Introduction to One Health: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Planetary Health covers topics ranging from threats to human, animal, and environmental health--the One Health Triad--to the economic and political aspects of One Health. Each chapter begins and ends with information on the effects of the Anthropocene and how we humans are the drivers of changes which threaten animal and environmental conservation and public health. The book offers in-class guided activities as well as at-home ones, long-term action steps, and recommended reading for further understanding of this growing movement. 

  • Provides a thorough introduction to the who, what, where, when, why, and how of One Health
  • Presents an overview of the One Health movement viewed through the perspective of different disciplines
  • Encompasses disease ecology, conservation, and veterinary and human medicine
  • Includes interviews from persons across disciplines important for the success of One Health
  • Includes case studies in each chapter to demonstrate real-world applications

Written with a unique, interdisciplinary point of view that makes it valuable to the growing number of One Health majors, minors, and certification programs in universities throughout the world, Introduction to One Health: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Planetary Health is an excellent guide for both undergraduate and graduate programs in the sciences, including the health sciences.
