One Health Aotearoa is an alliance of New Zealand’s leading infectious diseases researchers from the University of Otago, Massey University, and the Institute for Environmental Science and Research, who are committed to working together to tackle important infectious diseases locally and globally.
Our 'One Health' approach aims to improve health and wellbeing through integrated, cross-sectoral, and whole-of-society approaches to health hazards. Our mission is to bring together the best scientists in the field from diverse disciplines, including non-traditional players. We aspire to be the national leader in infectious diseases research, education, and advocacy, and the primary point of contact in New Zealand for international engagement and collaboration in One Health.
A website is in development.
In addition to the ten research centres above, the Division of Health Sciences hosts research themes, from agriculture to evolutionary genomics.
