The Humanimal Trust was set up to champion One Medicine and to inspire a generation to actively pursue the re-convergence of animal and human healthcare.

We passionately believe that animal health and human health are intrinsically linked. Work on one can and should benefit the other and animals should not suffer unnecessarily for human only gain.

This landmark charity, aims to establish a platform for the cross-pollination of expertise and ideas between veterinary and human medicine for the benefit of all living creatures, minimising unnecessary suffering.


As a surgeon who operates on humans, I know first-hand how many of the modern advances available to our patients have come as the result of the experimentation and testing of surgical techniques and implants in animals. Humans have benefited hugely from this and are undoubtedly better off as a result. The flow of information and experience in the reverse direction from human experience to enhance the care of animals is a natural progression in a caring society. Collaboration between the care givers in human and veterinary medicine should be seen as an opportunity to enhance each other’s knowledge and to improve care across both professions
