The One Health concept is an evolving worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care - for humans, animals and the environment.  Animal Health is playing a critical role in enhancing understanding of zoonosis, comparative and translational medicine.  The presentation will address the recent trends, the collaborations/cross-over between human and animal health and the increasing importance of one health ecosystem.  We aim to generate awareness, educated, increase collaboration and identify opportunities across one health stake holders.
