The One Health concept recognises that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. The World Health Organization (WHO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) recognise that adopting a ‘One Health’ approach is key to meeting grand challenges to our health such as climate change and antimicrobial resistance.

One Health CDC

Our mission

The Centre for One Health (COH) is an integral part of the Ryan Institute at NUI Galway and brings together experts in human health, animal health, microbiology, infectious diseases, agriculture, environmental policy, social marketing and behavioural change from within and outside NUI Galway. The COH  places sustaining human health, animal health and environmental health at the centre of public policy through teaching, research and advocacy. 

Members of the COH have cross-cutting interests across the three thematic areas of Human Health, Animal Health and Environmental Health. COH researchers and their research  groups are organised into the themes of their primary research focus above. More information is available by clicking through the thematic links above.

We promote our One Health research to the public through our Annual Conferences and Public Events.
