I care - We care - Do you?

A unique opportunity to lead a unique charity driving collaboration between human and veterinary medicine.

  • We care about One Medicine – that humans and animals should benefit equitably from groundbreaking medical progress and not at the expense of an animal’s life.
  • We care about all human and veterinary medical, and research professionals learning from and with each other, throughout their education and career, for the benefit all humans and animals.

We show we care through our ICARE workstreams

Influence – We care about bringing together everyone who knows and cares about One Medicine to create a road map for change in public policy and at the clinical coalface.

Collaboration – We care about creating opportunities to bring together human and veterinary professionals and students to learn from one another by demonstrating One Medicine at work.

Awareness - We care that everyone should know about benefits of One Medicine for humans and animals, about non-animal alternatives to laboratory models and about how much human and animal medicine can learn from one another, helping one day to make animal testing obsolete.

Research – We care about One Medicine research – funding it, encouraging it, supporting it, shouting about it – to benefit humans and animals.

Education – We care about every child learning what connects humans and animals; about veterinary and human medical students learning together and from one another; about professionals learning from their peers.
