One Health, Global health, one world, one health… here is a concept that emerged in the 2000s and which offers a holistic and integrated vision of health and well-being: the world is not around humans , the human is in the world … an evidence sometimes forgotten.
This proposal imposes a multidisciplinary vision leading to unified actions in the field of public, animal and environmental health. As for microbes, they are certainly small, but so numerous and so diverse. They constitute an important biomass on the planet and play a fundamental role in the regulation of our ecosystems. They are most often approached through their damaging role on our health, thus highlighting the viruses, bacteria and parasites responsible for infectious diseases and sometimes health disasters.
Gaining a better understanding of our relationships with microbes in the context of global health is the subject of this roundtable.
Simon Le Hello, former deputy director of the National Reference Center for Escherichia coli, Shigella, and Salmonella at the Institut Pasteur Paris, and currently professor of microbiology at the CHU de Caen and researcher in the GRAM2.0 unit of the Caen Normandy University;

and finally Astrid Vabret, professor of virology at Caen University Hospital, researcher in the GRAM unit of Caen Normandie University, and specialist in viral respiratory infections.
