One Health

One Health is an initiative to improve animal and human health globally through collaboration between veterinarians, physicians, osteopaths, dentists, nurses, and other scientific-health professionals. It recognizes that the health of people is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. The study of emerging infectious diseases, the effects of pollution and antibiotic resistance, the value of the human-animal bond, and more are critical to ensuring optimal health and well-being for all species. To promote One Health, the AKC Canine Health Foundation recognizes and supports research that improves the health of dogs while simultaneously advancing knowledge for human medicine.
