One Health embraces traditionally separate fields including human medical health disciplines, veterinary medicine, public health and health administration, and the interactions of human and animal populations with the environment. The connection between human health and the environment has been understood since ancient times. The modern synthesis is the recognition that complex health problems such as disease pandemics cannot be prevented or controlled by specialists in one discipline alone, but require contributions from multiple specialists working in collaborative teams.
This postgraduate degree enables graduates to see beyond their initial disciplinary specialisation and appreciate the range of insights needed for the effective management of community health issues.
