Introducing One Health Organisation

One Health Organisation (OHO) is an independent humanitarian agency for Holistic Primary Health Care (HPHC), which formed in 2005 to bridge the gap between the wellness sector and the community sector. Run entirely by volunteers, OHO was founded upon the principles of HPHC in a spirit of co-operation, goodwill and service in order to realise a common goal of health for all.

Some of the OHO projects include the following:

Local
  • Asylum Seeker’s Centre-Sydney- New South Wales
  • Eigana Garden’s Project with Gunawirra- Australia
  • Gunawirra Indigenous Early Intervention Nutrition and Culture Project- Australia
  • Hands on Health Community Clinics- Melbourne, Victoria
  • World Wellness Group Traditional Medicine Clinic- Brisbane, Queensland
  • Youth in Crisis Nutritional Outreach with The Salvation Army- Australia
International
  • School Access for Remote Nepalese Children- Nepaledanda in Bhojpur, Eastern Nepal
  • MyKids Nutrition and Sanitation Project- Yangon, Myanmar
  • Indian Sustainable Healthcare Clinic- Datom, India
  • Nicaraguan Holistic Primary Healthcare- Nicaragua
  • Bumi Sehat Midwifery Project- Indonesia
  • Volunteer Mission Africa- Zimbabwe

The OHO mission is to see the principles of HPHC enacted on a global scale, and to provide communities around the world with access to quality HPHC programs that address the root causes of their displacement and disease. OHO work in collaboration with approved holistic healthcare professionals to rebuild individuals' and communities' health using a co-operative, integrative and multidisciplinary approach that leans heavily on nutrition, lifestyle and education. However OHO cannot continue this vital work to support the poorest and most vulnerable communities without the support of Practitioners like you.
