Our Approach

We have four objectives – They are the foundation of our work as a charity and all our activities will focus on one or more of these objectives. They are all intrinsically linked with no one element being more or less important than the others.



Many diseases and conditions are common to humans and non-human animals.  Building on this synergy, one medicine will deliver new cost effective treatments for both humans and animals.  In my field of musculoskeletal disease this concept is truly fundamental, and there is massive potential for the future. Humanimal Trust funding for such projects will be a key catalyst for this essential cross-pollination for the benefit of all species.
