Remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are often a hive of activity with swarms of fly-in-fly-out service providers – including veterinarians – delivering a suite of essential services. Whilst these service providers all do important and essential work, from a One Health perspective, there is seldom collaboration both within and between disciplines. In achieving optimal health and wellbeing for people, animals and the environment, the benefits of a collaborative One Health approach have been well documented. In this presentation, AMRRIC makes a case for improved collaboration between service providers in rural and remote Indigenous communities, so that there can be improved benefits to the health and wellbeing of people, animals and their environment.
