Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue Advancing One Health Approaches for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: Transdisciplinary Perspectives welcomes contributions that embody the principles of the One Health approach, promoting integration and collaboration across diverse disciplines to address global challenges related to human, animal, and environmental health. Authors are encouraged to submit original research, systematic reviews, case studies, and opinions exploring various aspects of One Health, such as the following:

  • Epidemiology of zoonotic diseases and inter-species transmission;
  • The role of the environment in human and animal health;
  • Challenges and solutions in disease surveillance and control;
  • Implications of animal health on economy and food security;
  • Innovative approaches to veterinary and human public health;
  • Environmental sustainability and its impact on human and animal welfare;
  • Policies and strategies to promote the implementation of One Health approaches at the global, national, and local levels.

We seek contributions that facilitate knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary collaboration, embracing the principles of One Health and exploring innovative strategies and collaborative efforts aimed at promoting health and preventing disease across diverse sectors. By bringing together experts from various disciplines, including medicine, genetics, bioinformatics, zoology, veterinary science, environmental science, and social sciences, this Special Issue aims at fostering a holistic understanding of health promotion and disease prevention. Through transdisciplinary perspectives, this Special Issue aims at highlighting the complex interplay between human health, animal health, and the environment, and identifying synergistic approaches to address emerging health challenges. Contributions to this Special Issue may include original research articles, reviews, and conceptual papers offering novel insights, innovative methodologies, and practical solutions for advancing One Health approaches in promoting public health and preventing disease.
