One Arctic, One Health

A theoretical concept and practical approach for developing and sustaining broad interdisciplinary collaboration – to identify, prevent, and mitigate health risks in humans, animals and the environment.

Main activities

This project builds a collaborative network of Arctic One Health (human- animal-environmental health nexus) stakeholders via:

  1. knowledge sharing;
  2. tabletop exercises; and,
  3. collaborative investigations of One Health phenomena such as disease outbreaks and natural disasters.

Project leads also organize, host, and participate in conferences and webinars examining and discussing One Health phenomena; and,

Since 2015, the project leads have convened approximately 2-3 times per year, leveraging various events in the Arctic region to minimize travel and time costs to participants.
