The One Health concept recognises that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment.

UN agencies, including the World Health Organization, the World Organisation for Animal Health and the Food and Agriculture Organisation recognise that adopting a ‘One Health’ approach is key to  meeting grand challenges to our health such as climate change and antimicrobial resistance.

The Centre for One Health (COH) recognises the dependence of human and animal health on our environment, and promotes the concept that health and well-being is the most important resource that we derive from our environment. The COH is working to place sustaining health through environmental stewardship at the centre of public policy through teaching, research and advocacy.  The COH is an integral part of the Ryan Institute at NUI Galway and brings together researchers within the University from key areas including, air & water quality, food & soil biology and public & environmental policy.
