Inside this issue: One Health
The concept of One Health is based on the recognition that there are interconnections among human, animal and environmental health and there is increasingly a need to cross professional, disciplinary and institutional boundaries to address these. This issue highlights the fact that tropical diseases may only be an airplane ride away, that recreational waters can be affected by environmental factors that may be amenable to satellite surveillance and that severe weather (e.g. typhoons) can disrupt public health activities (e.g. immunization).
