September 26-28, 2016 at The Radisson Hotel in Winnipeg

One Welfare is an emerging topic that examines animal and human welfare in a One Health framework to address complex conditions where the human mental health has a direct impact on the outcomes for all species involved.

The International One Welfare Conference is an opportunity for national and international subject matter experts as well as decision makers in the fields of human and animal health and welfare to learn from each other within the One Welfare framework. We will discuss the science, best practices, models and policies that have shown successes –or challenges— in managing complex issues, from hoarding involving animals through to on-farm animal welfare issues that relate to human outcomes such as mental health, ageing, and socioeconomic status.


One Welfare is the blending of animal and human welfare in a One Health framework to address complex conditions, such as hoarding, where the human mental health has direct impact on the outcomes for all species involved.
