Tonga One Health and Vector-borne Diseases Workshop

​The One Health approach relies on the interdependency of human, animal and environmental health. Zoonotic disease surveillance, management and control are better managed using a cross-sector, transdisciplinary approach. Of particular interest, the emergence of vector-borne zoonotic diseases in relation to climate change is better handled with a One Health approach: the human and financial cost of outbreaks may be reduced if detected in vectors, wildlife or livestock first.
