One Health 

The One Health concept informs the way Dorset LEP supports industries such as agriculture and aquaculture to benefit local business, human health, animal welfare and environment concerns.

One Health

One Health is the globally understood umbrella term for the interconnectedness of human, animal and environmental health. The interrelation between human, animal and environmental health and the interdisciplinary working required by industry, academia and Government agencies to tackle these ‘wicked’ problems in an holistic way.
