One Health Day, celebrated on 3 November each year, raises awareness around the need for research to join across many disciplines to solve the world’s critical health challenges. The One Health agenda advocates that scientists consider how animal, human and plant health are interlinked and to apply a holistic approach to tackle emerging infectious disease, antimicrobial resistance, climate change and pollution.
