Edinburgh Impact

One health

Stories about how the health of humans, animals and ecosystems are tightly bound together.

One Health is, essentially, about the interrelated nature of life on earth. Sickness in animals can have a devastating effect on the human world. Environmental ruin can cause food shortages for people and animals alike. Our One Health research encompasses issues such as food security, over-grazing, pollution, market economies, waste management, policy and politics.
