ECHA’s Safer Chemicals Podcast

Joining forces for humans, animals, environment: One Health - Part 1

Listen on

Episode notes

Our wellbeing depends on the health of animals, plants and our environment. What affects one affects all the others, and increasingly so.

A One Health perspective is about joining forces to find integrated solutions to common challenges such as climate change and antibiotic resistance.

Join us to hear from experts at five EU scientific agencies about how we can put One Health into practice. Whether it's safeguarding access to life-saving medicines or combating the next pandemics, a One Health approach will be essential to how our society navigates the future. 

This is the first of our two part episode with speakers from five EU agencies.
