“... Four takeaways from this Framework:
 

  • Starting points for One Health vary by context, disease, and objectives. Public health systems must be agile enough to address all hazards. While not all public health threats require a One Health approach, countries need strong human, animal, and environmental health/management systems and coordination between them to determine which sectors are relevant for understanding and managing risk.

  • One Health is integral to the success of multisectoral national action plans for health security, to address antimicrobial resistance, and for disaster risk reduction. It can optimize pandemic preparedness planning and enhance climate change vulnerability assessments.

  • One Health approaches should be built into project design from the outset. Engaging all relevant stakeholders early on can help optimize project success by promoting a common understanding of issues and joint solutions to address them, anticipating risks, targeting gaps, reducing duplication, and facilitating relevant coordination channels.

  • Communication is a key priority for One Health understanding and implementation. Planning for disease events and maintaining strong multi-sector coordination channels helps ensure consistent and effective messaging to manage risk, enhance efficiency, and promote credibility of all sectors. ...”

Abstract


One Health is an emerging global key concept integrating human and animal health through international research and policy. The complex relationships between the human and animal have resulted in a human-animal-environment interface since prehistorical times. The people, animals, plants, and the environment are so intrinsically linked that prevention of risks and the mitigation of effects of crises that originate at the interface between humans, animals, and their environments can only improve health and wellbeing. The “One Health” approach has been successfully implemented in numerous projects around the world. The containment of pandemic threats such as avian influenza and severe acute respiratory syndrome within months of outbreak are few examples of successful applications of the One Health paradigm. The paper begins with a brief overview of the human-animal interface and continues with the socio-economic and public health impact caused by various zoonotic diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome, Influenza, and Ebola virus. This is followed by the role of “One Health” to deal the global problem by the global solution. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary collaboration, training for health professionals and institutional support to minimize global health threats due to infectious diseases. The broad definition of the concept is supposed to lead multiple interpretations that impede the effective implementation of One Health approach within veterinary profession, within the medical profession, by wildlife specialists and by environmentalists, while on the other side, it gives a value of interdisciplinary collaboration for reducing threats in human-animal-environment interface.

Key Investments to Combat Antibiotic Resistance

 

CDC released new data in its Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Investment Map, which shows early progress by states to combat AR. This year’s AR Investment Map features more than 170 state-reported successes—like rapidly identifying and containing rare and concerning resistant germs to protect communities—with each state reporting multiple successes.

These are the first comprehensive reports on state progress made following the first year of Congress’ unprecedented investment in CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Initiative.

CDC Helps Countries Prioritize Their Top Zoonotic Diseases

report

Did you know that CDC’s One Health Office works with countries and partners around the globe to prioritize zoonotic diseases of greatest national concern? CDC experts lead One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshops for countries that want to prioritize a list of their most urgent zoonotic disease threats. These workshops bring together experts from many different areas who work to protect the health of people, animals, and the environment. Workshop participants collaborate to identify a country’s top zoonotic diseases to target for One Health collaborations and develop strategies to tackle the newly prioritized zoonotic diseases.

 

Prioritizing diseases helps countries focus their resources, allowing them to better prevent, detect, and respond to the prioritized diseases and protect human and animal health. To date, CDC has helped 18 countries conduct prioritization workshops on four continents. Zoonotic diseases commonly prioritized include rabies, zoonotic influenza viruses, viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola virus and Rift Valley fever, brucellosis, and anthrax.

An outstanding, informative One Health University program (and website) with a global health orientation and outreach…

Duke University (USA)

What is One Health?

With rapid transportation of people, animals, and food, now the norm in many world economies, we are facing new complex zoonotic diseases and food safety problems on a scale never seen before. To respond to and control these problems, we will need new approaches. One Health, an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses animal, human, and environmental health, has been embraced as a way forward by many groups of professional experts. It is a worldwide strategy for advancing health care in humans, animals and the environment through communication and collaboration between multiple disciplines with the realization that human, animal, and environmental health are all connected.

The Duke One Health team serves as a base for the rapidly expanding Duke research portfolio in One Health, as well as a hub for encouraging ongoing campus-wide research activities in this field. Duke has an expansive academic and clinical network both domestically and abroad. This team provides a strong, interdisciplinary base for ongoing One Health activities across this network.

Interest in One Health is Widespread:

  • Worldwide 65 academic institutions have some sort of a One Health program with 14 (22%) having a One Health certificate, masters or PhD program

  • Additionally, 68 nonacademic organizations have a One Health program. ...
