But you might have seen many people around you, who never seem to get an acute illness. People who have never had a cold or never had a fever in ten years. Not all of these people are healthy. In fact many of these people are more ill than their counterparts who keep getting their occasional acutes. I say this because these people are not super humans and most of them are not in ‘ideal’ health either. The fact is that these people do get affected by environmental factors and other stresses. But the result of these forces is not seen on physical plane. Such people are more affected on the mental and emotional plane. They become ‘dis-eased’ but their disease is not easily apparent on the physical level. If you want to cross-check my statement, then go to a mental asylum and enquire about the rate of prevalence of acute ailments. You will find it extremely low.

The two previous health programmes from 2008-2013, and 2003-2007 generated knowledge and evidence that served as a basis for informed policymaking and further research.This included best practice, tools, and methodologies that secured benefits for both the public-health communities and citizens directly (e.g improving diagnostic tests, supporting EU countries in developing national actions plans on cancer, improving patient care).
L'agence française Anses a annoncé le 24 octobre 2017 qu'elle allait à partir de janvier 2018 coordonner l’EJP One Health. Ce projet conjoint européen de recherche portera sur les zoonoses alimentaires20. Il est centré sur les risques d'intoxication microbienne zoonotique d'origine alimentaire, y compris par des toxines naturelles et/ou via les réservoirs animaux domestiques ou encore via d'éventuelles importations illégales de produits animaux21. Les agents biologiques étudiés seront les virus, les bactéries, les parasites, les champignons, les prions et les séquences de nucléotides / matériel génétique conférant la résistance aux antimicrobiens21. Ce consortium issu d'un réseau européen préétabli (NoE, FP6) qui a été élargi à plus de 40 partenaires venant de 19 États-membres sera soutenu par la Commission européenne et travaillera autour du concept One Health. Ces partenaires doivent améliorer la connaissance des zoonoses alimentaires, de l'antibiorésistance et de divers risques émergents21. De 2004 à 2009, l'Anses avait déjà coordonné un réseau d’excellence dans le cadre du 6e programme cadre de recherche et de développement (PCRD) de la Commission européenne. Elle a aussi aidé à créer l'association Med-Vet-Net qui en regroupant des instituts de recherche en santé publique et vétérinaire a préfiguré l'EJP One Health20. Les partenaires font déjà partie d'une réseau organisé de communautés de chercheurs et de laboratoires de référence travaillant sur les zoonoses alimentaires, l'antibiorésistance et des risques émergents. Ce programme One Health doit produire des données destinées à mieux caractériser, évaluer et hiérarchiser les risques sanitaires par les agences nationales et européennes21. Il doit aussi faciliter et accélérer la validation et diffusion des données au sein de la communauté scientifique, faciliter l'éducation et la formation, la gestion des connaissances, l'accès aux bases de données, mais aussi aux souches vivantes, aux biobanques, à certaines installations encore expérimentales21. Le projet pourra aussi contribuer à harmoniser et standardiser certains protocoles et tests21, en lien avec deux institutions européennes pertinentes pour des domaines : l'EFSA et l'ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control)21.

This may seem a bit idealistic to some, but here we are talking about the ideals. But even this definition does not cover it all. Let me give an example. There are lots of people around us who catch a cold with every change of season or with every sudden change of temperature. Now in common parlance, we say that these people have low immunity. But the fact is that most of these people have normal blood counts and normal immunological tests. So when these people are not down with cold they are in perfect health as per the above definition. And yet they are not perfectly healthy. Their system breaks down with every stressful condition. So we can add another aspect to the above definition of physical health:
As a way of life, it is good to reduce the toxin load by eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats. This would of course be the case especially whilst doing a detoxing program.  Also, clean up your household cleaners and personal health care products, by selecting more natural alternatives, rather than the chemical based products.
Cette approche accorde un rôle majeur aux vétérinaires et propriétaires ou gestionnaires d’animaux ainsi qu'aux personnes en contact régulier avec les faunes domestique et sauvage et l’environnement (et en particulier : éleveurs mais aussi pêcheurs, chasseurs, forestiers et gestionnaires d'espaces protégés). Pour l'OIE, sa mise en œuvre passe par « de nouveaux mécanismes amenant tous ces acteurs à s’informer mutuellement et à agir d’une manière concertée, en liaison avec les gestionnaires de la santé publique qui travaillent le plus souvent dans nos pays membres sous l’égide des ministères de la Santé, qu’ils soient fonctionnaires de l’État, personnels de collectivités ou médecins libéraux »3.
