The WHO defines One Health (OH) as an approach to designing and implementing programs, policies, legislation and research in which multiple sectors communicate and work together to achieve better public health outcomes. This is particularly relevant for combatting the disconnect between human health, animal health and environmental and ecosystems health. The areas in which a One Health approach is particularly applicable include food safety, the control of zoonoses (diseases that can spread between animals and humans), and combatting antibiotic resistance. This paper advocates a One Health approach and provides rationales on how this can help achieve each of the SDGs. It also recommends actions that will aid countries in implemeting the OH approach. This document can guide policy makers to initiate changes that will facilitate the One Health approach and solidify the road towards achievement of SDGs.
