The One Health Initiative is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment (http://onehealthinitiative.com/). Addressing infectious diseases in food and companion animals, finding novel treatments for fighting the cancers and other physiological maladies that befall our beloved pets[i], and trying to meet the increasing demands of abundant and nutritious food are examples of links among human, animal and environmental health.
Veterinary pharmacologists are influenced by and influence scientific advancements in One Health, so the theme for this year’s AAVPT biennial meeting is “The Role of Veterinary Pharmacology in One Health.” We will explore the multifaceted challenges we face as veterinary pharmacologists as we seek to meet the therapeutic needs associated with veterinary species while engaging in efforts to better understand the commonality in physiology, pharmacokinetics, and disease targets that define our One World Health.
