In recent years, the collaboration of human and animal medicine has advanced science and improved overall community health. Emerging diseases such as avian influenza, Ebola and Zika have highlighted the importance of collaborative/One Health* efforts between the medical and veterinary professions.

Harris County Public Health's One Health Conference brings together animal and human healthcare professionals under one roof to discuss critical and relevant One Health topics with experts in the field. We are committed to creating healthy, resilient communities by promoting and sustaining the health and well-being of humans, animals, and the environment by:

  • Aligning education and communication efforts
  • Creating and enhancing multidisciplinary community partnerships
  • Promoting One Health principles

  *The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals, and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations.
