IFIC Foundation Creates One Health Day Awareness

Co-coordinated by the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team and the One Health Platform Foundation, One Health Day is an international campaign whose goal is to raise awareness about the One Health approach to "complex challenges involving people, animals and the environment." In as many countries as possible, activities and events will give scientists, practitioners, educators and advocates a powerful, unified voice for moving beyond current provincial approaches to emerging infectious diseases, food safety and security, antimicrobial resistance, invasive species, environmental pollution, loss of biodiversity, and many other problems. One Health Day is held annually on Nov. 3.

The International Food Information Council Foundation is excited to bring awareness to a cause focused on enhancing the public’s knowledge on human, animal and environmental health—One Health Day.  Below you will find a list of resources, developed by the IFIC Foundation, that are aligned with the education and edification goals of One Health Day. Our hope is that these resources will help supplement the public’s knowledge of issues related to environmental sustainability, agricultural technology to support food supplies, and farmer environmental stewardship.
