Our Work

#InThisTogether

When the people, animals, and environment are put together they make up the One Health Triad.

75% of emerging infectious diseases originate from animal or animal products.

Why this area?

Successful public health interventions require the cooperation of human, animal, and environmental health partners. Professionals in human health (doctors, nurses, public health practitioners, epidemiologists), animal health (veterinarians, paraprofessionals, agricultural workers), environment (ecologists, wildlife experts), and other areas of expertise need to communicate, collaborate on, and coordinate activities. Other relevant players in a One Health approach could include law enforcement, policymakers, agriculture, communities, and even pet owners. No one person, organization, or sector can address issues at the animal-human-environment interface alone.

Swasti’s Focus 

This is an emerging area for us. One of our initiatives, the PrecisionHealth platform started off as a COVID-19 waste water surveillance initiative in March 2021 and has partners and projects in the pipeline that will evolve this platform into a OneHealth Platform.

PrecisionHealth is a platform that supports, hosts and furthers environmental surveillance for public health. The platform is hosted by a multidisciplinary team by specialist organisations who are some of the best in their category. The most significant initiatives under this platform are the Bangalore City-wide COVID-19 Surveillance program and the genetic variants surveillance.

Impact

The PrecisionHealth platform contributes to city officials’ decision-making on COVID-19 preparedness and response as an early warning system.
