Editor-in-Chief's message:

I am excited about the opportunity offered to me by OAE Publishing Inc. to begin this journey as Editor-in-Chief of One Health & Implementation Research.

The topic is absolutely relevant since an integrative and holistic approach to human, animal and environmental health is the only way to address the health challenges of the 21st century. This vision requires practice not only from the conceptual approach but also from the research barriers and facilitators for its effective implementation.

With One Health & Implementation Research, we hope to scientifically contribute as much as we can to a better world, and we invite you to participate in this adventure.

Respectfully submitted by the Editorial Office of One Health & Implementation Research.
