THE ONE HEALTH
CONCEPTUALIZATION
OF PUBLIC HEALTH
PRACTICE
Veterinarians in Public Health:
Looking Outside The Two Legged Box
BY ERICA TRAMUTA-DROBNIS, VMD,

any ask what business a veterinarian has in public health.
Perhaps to some it is all too
clear while to others it is beyond
reason and logic. Why should we advocate
the concepts of One Health, even One
World? To think that other species play no
role in the overall health of human society,
dismisses the reality that humans are only
one animal out of millions.
McCloskey et al., 2014, describe this
One Health concept well. They state that
the concept has been "fueled in some
considerable part by the emergence and
reemergence of infectious diseases, many of
which involve multiple hosts and vectors, the
term references a single bio-communicable
planet (one world) that requires greater
cooperation, and coordination, in order
to prevent and prepare for inevitable if
indeterminate disease events (one health)"
(McCloskey et al., 2014).
