Working Groups

The EAACI Working Groups are established as part of the Interest Groups or Sections. Each chair of the Working Group sits automatically as an additional board member in their respective Interest Group or Section board. The EAACI Working Groups represent relevant and growing scientific areas for the academy and have a clear link or common interest to their Interest Group or Sections.

The One Health approach recognizes that the health of people is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. One Health is not new, but it has become more important in recent years. This is because many factors have changed interactions between people, animals, plants, and our environment. By promoting collaboration across all sectors, a One Health approach can achieve the best health outcomes for people, animals, and plants in a shared environment.

WHO defines One Health as “ an approach to designing and implementing programmes, policies, legislation and research in which multiple sectors communicate and work together to achieve better public health outcomes.“

An important feature of this WG will be a highly interdisciplinary approach, therefore, EAACI sections/IG/WG members will work together with colleagues with broad range of fields of expertises, such as nutrition/dietetics, ecology, biology, microplastics, agriculture, veterinary medicine, wildlife experts, aerobiology, to name a few.
