One Health Basics

One Health

The One Health approach recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. In order to successfully monitor and control public health threats, it is important to pay attention to the spread of diseases among people, animals, and the environment.

We can prevent foodborne zoonoses right from the farm or factory, where the food is produced, to the table, where it is consumed, because contamination can occur at different stages of the process.

Your Foodborne Illnesses Could Be Linked to that of an Animal!

Our aim is to generate crowdsource-data that can be used to link food poisoning cases to their sources, identify related cases, and prevent outbreaks of food borne illnesses.

We also aim to make food service providers improve on their production practices by making food safety a priority.

Because we know that zoonotic diseases can be life-threateningt and that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment, we take animal poisoning serious too! You can report cases of livestock or pet foodborne illnesses as well as contaminated feed and/or feed ingredients here.

In the end, your report will have a positive impact on public health as we will be able to control the spread of diseases among people, animals, and the environment.

Why Report Food Poisoning and Food Safety Violation?

By reporting your food poisoning experience, you are helping yourself and others

To Prevent Future Occurence

When you report one incidence, you are reducing the chances of it happening to you or others some other time.

To Detect Outbreaks

Data generated from this crowdsource platform will help to link related cases of foodborne illness, identify the source of contamination and stop outbreaks of such illnesses.

To Have a Better Food Service Sector

From farm to fork, there will be better food production practices, which will bring about a reduction in the rate of food contamination.

To Create Awareness

On its own, your food poisoning experience may not seem like much. But an awareness is created as people with similar experiences share their stories

To Control Zoonotic Diseases

Many livestock and pets are lost annually due to foodborne illnesses. Animals also share our susceptibility to some diseases and can serve as early warning signs of the outbreak of such diseases.

To Have Records of Allergies and Drug Reactions

Would it not be great if we knew the percentage of the population that is allergic to certain food ingredients? It will lead to the promotion of allergy-conscious food labelling. Report!
