“The causes of today’s most pressing problems – such as the climate crisis, hunger, poverty and pandemic disease – are extremely complex, and interrelated”.

An explanation of the relation between the One Health approach and food safety has been released by Jeffrey LeJeune, FAO Food Safety Officer.

One Health is an integrated approach for preventing and mitigating health threats at the animal-human-plantenvironment interfaces.

Food safety is a core tenet of One Health that provides an opportunity for people of different sectors and disciplines to join together to promote better health for people, the planet and animals.
