Antimicrobial stewardship is part of a larger concept of One Health, which is the recognition that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. The goal of One Health is to encourage the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines—working locally, nationally, and globally—to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment.
In Wisconsin, this coordinated effort involves partnerships with health care providers, patients, families, pharmacists, health care facilities, clinical laboratories, local health departments, health care associations throughout the continuum of care, veterinarians, producers, and industry.
A One Health approach is important because six out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are spread from animals.
