Notwithstanding the understandable rationale of the logical, expected and natural evolution of human behaviour towards an anthropocentric view of its relationship with other animals and the environment, a shift from this predatory “Ego-centric” behaviour towards an “Eco” conduct, with regard to their view of the world and of the global health, has become mandatory, contributing to the development of the “One Health” and of “One Health Systems” concepts. We contend for the usefulness of a building-blocks approach to facilitate an understanding of the development of One Health Systems. We assert that a building-blocks approach to One Health Systems with strong similarity to WHO's building-blocks for human health systems would help to strengthen the case for robust,resilient and anti-fragile One Health systems.
