The purpose of this study is to create awareness amongst physicians, veterinarians, environmentalists, and public health professionals in Nigeria on the critical need for “One Health”. The continuous global emergence of novel infectious diseases has made scientists in the developed world realised that the only way to achieve a defensible and healthy society is by adopting the “One Health” Initiative. In Nigeria, the unattended poor sanitary measures, neglected porous international borders and deteriorated human and animal health care facilities have made the populace vulnerable to a lot of diseases emerging in different parts of the world. Health professionals in the country need to rise to the challenge through collaborative and synergistic efforts towards building a defensible and healthy society.
