Naturally, humans and animals co-exist in the same
environment.  This has been used by microbes to their advantage as a big opportunity by
both, making the efforts to control and eradicate them harder. The One Health approach is
defined by
the CDC as a collaborative, multisectoral, and trans-disciplinary approach — working at the
regional, national, and global levels — with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes
recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared
environment.  Professionals from different fields of expertise have been working hand in hand to
achieve the objectives of the One Health approach. They have seen its importance in food safety,
control of different zoonoses and most especially, to address the current war regarding
resistance.  As microbes are very much coordinated, antibiotic resistance can be
transmitted from humans to animals and back and forth, making it harder, as mentioned earlier,
control and completely eradicate them.
