Abstract

The essence of One Health, as described in Chapter 2, is the interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health. Greater recognition of these co-dependencies will ensure that interventions designed to protect health or mitigate disease threats in one sector will not have unintended or disproportionate adverse consequences for others. This interdependence raises ethical questions about how to balance competing values and priorities within and between different sectors.
