The ethics of One Health

Chapter


Abstract


  • The essence of One Health, as described in Chapter 2, is the

    interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health. Greater

    recognition of these co-dependencies will ensure that interventions

    designed to protect health or mitigate disease threats in one sector

    will not have unintended or disproportionate adverse consequences

    for others. This interdependence raises ethical questions about how to

    balance competing values and priorities within and between different

    sectors.
