One Health

Plant and animal health is a determining factor for food security in the global South. It depends on the smooth functioning of socio-ecosystems and is directly linked to public health and human wellbeing. Human and animal mobility, animal and plant product trading, agricultural intensification, territorial extension of production operations, phytosanitary and veterinary product use, climate change, extreme natural phenomena and ecological upheavals all exacerbate sanitary risks and complicate the issues for health research.
