Rational: One Health is an integrated approach to complex health problems, involving human health as well as animals, food chains and ecosystems. Hence, one health tackles complexity by exploiting the added value of multidisciplinary. One Health is much valued by the WHO and other international agencies to manage issues such as the health impacts of climate changes, indeed, the field of application of one health is steadily increasing. Many rare diseases are inherently complex, as they involve genetic and environmental factors, many others, even though they recognize a genetic basis, can be importantly modulated by the physical and or social environment. This webinar intends to start a discussion on how can One Health based approaches help in rare diseases.
