One Health Institute


Founded jointly by the Vetsuisse Faculty, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science, the One Health Institute (OHI) has been established as a new institute at the University of Zurich in May 2023.  

In 2019, the UZH designated One Health as one of its strategic research foci. A multi-year start-up funding, the TRANSFORM funding line, allowed launching of the OHI initiative now set to fill this strategic focus with life, and to grow thematically, eventually including more faculties within the next few years.  

We understand One Health as a transdisciplinary, holistic view on human and animal health in the context of entire ecosystems encompassing a broad range of disciplines.
