About the Commission
Who We Are
The One Health Commission is a globally focused organization dedicated to promoting improved health of people, domestic animals, wildlife, plants and the environment.
The 501(c)(3) organization, chartered in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to informing all audiences about the importance of transcending institutional and disciplinary boundaries, and transforming the way that human, animal, plant, and ecosystem health professionals, and their related disciplines, work together to improve the health of all living things and the environment.
The Commission seeks to ‘Connect’ One Health Advocates, to ‘Create’ networks and teams that work together across disciplines to ‘Educate’ about One Health and One Health issues. Its actions intend:
- To inform all audiences about the importance of the One Health approach. This includes established professionals and students from all disciplines (from Anthropology to Architectural Design to Biology/Chemistry to Food Scientists to Medicine to Psychology to Sociology to Zoology, etc), lay public, policy and law makers, health care providers from human and animal domains, agricultural and food production sectors.
- To transform the way human, animal, plant and ecosystem health-related disciplines and institutions work together by creating the needed opportunities for them to come together in direct conversations. (See One Health Community Webinars OHC has supported and the First International Who’s Who in One Health Webinar)
- To train and prepare the Next Generation of One Health leaders and professionals by supporting Students for One Health and involving them in efforts to further the One Health paradigm shift. (See Students for One Health webpage)
Sponsorship opportunities are provided for non-profit institutional organizations, corporations, and individuals who would like to help further the One Health paradigm shift.
The Commission is headquartered in the Research Triangle Park region of central North Carolina at P.O. Box 972, Apex, NC 27502, Telephone: 984-500-8593
