One Health is a holistic approach that considers connections between the health of humans, animals and the environment. It focuses on the entire system in which diseases can develop and spread.
India has a high population density, a large number of farm animals and very diverse wildlife. This results in a high risk for the spread of zoonotic diseases, meaning illnesses transferred from animals to people.

To minimise these risks, the responsible parties must work together across various areas.
Indian institutions cooperate more effectively to reduce risks to human, animal and environmental health.
The project improves the institutional framework in India and imparts the skills needed to reduce risks to human, animal and environmental health. To this end, it works with the Indian Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) as well as other relevant ministries and local stakeholders. The project demonstrates the effectiveness of the One Health approach in tandem with agroecological measures via pilot measures in various states.
The project uses the following approaches:
