One Health Education Resources - One Health Commission

One Health Education Resources


One Health is an integrated concept of health and well-being that gives consideration of and combines knowledge and input from many different stakeholders to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, plants, and our environment.

One Health can be meaningful for everyone.  It is about developing a relationship with our world that leads to a more sustainable, empathetic and healthy existence for all living creatures and the planet itself. 


Incorporating One Health into primary/secondary (K12) education prepares our students 1) to be critical thinkers who inherently understand connections of human, animal, and ecosystem health and 2) to be our future leaders and responsible citizens in our diverse, complex, and ever-changing world.  

One Health can provide the conceptual basis for a curriculum that can teach young people how to look beyond immediate results and to ask complex questions while seeking a deeper understanding of integrated problem solving that preserves the health of an entire system.   The One Health Education Task Force is working to make available K-12 (primary/secondary) curriculum materials  that emphasize the One Health approach. This methodology can be applied to nearly any discipline from STEM to the humanities and can be used to bridge disciplines when working through a  complex issue. 

Teachers (K-12 and beyond) will find that incorporation of the One Health concept into curricula supports not only meeting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in individual content areas, but can deepen student learning through critical thinking and cross curricular real world application.

Follow the links below to find materials for your classroom. More materials will be added as they are developed or become available over time. These lessons are available only in English so far.  Let us know if you would like to help us adapt them to your native language.
