One health

Glasgow is an international leader in One Health research.

Our health and wellbeing is tightly interwoven with the health of animals and the environment around us. Through an integrated "one health" approach our researchers consider the biological, social, economic, political and environmental contexts surrounding human and animal health.

We use our expertise to devise practical strategies, influence policy and work with communities to reduce the burden of disease around the world.

We work across the Global South with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa, as well as Scotland and the rest of the UK. 

Our interdisciplinary collaborations have made a significant impact on key national and global health and veterinary agendas.
