Protecting animals, preserving our future

Since the OIE believes that controlling all animal pathogens at their animal source is the most effective and economic way of protecting people, it works every day to promote a collaborative and multi-sectoral approach, centred on the concept of “One Health”.

Being aware of health risks at the human–animal–ecosystems interface is the cornerstone of their prevention and control. The communication tools developed by the OIE are freely accessible and available to everyone for downloading and distribution.
