One Health Approach Supports Global Health Security

 

 

Diseases, including zoonotic diseases, can spread around the world very quickly, and the One Health approach can help to protect people and animals from illnesses that cross borders. CDC and its partners support One Health activities in the United States and globally, helping to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging global health threats including zoonotic diseases shared between people and animals.

 

CDC’s Emerging Infectious Diseases journal is featuring a special supplement on Global Health Security, which includes articles highlighting how the One Health approach plays an important role in creating a safer global community.

Gubernatorial Proclamation Signing [Iowa (USA) One Health Month!] – November 22, 2017

 

On behalf of the Iowa One Health committee of Iowa, we'd like to invite you to attend a Proclamation signing by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds declaring the month of November as Iowa One Health Month!

 

The Proclamation signing will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 11:30am in the Governor's formal office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please arrive by 11:15am. Anyone is welcome to attend and free parking (map) is available around the Capitol Complex.

 

The purpose of this Proclamation is to support, strengthen and expand One Health-related efforts in Iowa, and to increase awareness of One Health principles to improve human health, veterinary health, agriculture, and land stewardship. 

 

One Health is defined as the collaborative effort of multiple health and social science professions, together with their related disciplines and institutions – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, and our environment. To learn more about the Iowa One Health Conference, visit here https://www.public-health.uiowa.edu/ceid/other-ceid-events/conferences/.

 

Your attendance at this Proclamation signing would help demonstrate the importance of developing solutions to many interconnected problems that impact the health of humans, animals, and the environment. 

 

We hope to see you on November 22! 

 

 

Sincerely,

Funding Opportunities:  A limited number of Occupational Health at the Human Animal Interface (OHHAI) Scholarships, including tuition and stipend are offered through the UW Center for One Health Research. The OHHAI training program is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) through the UW Northwest Center for Occupational Health & Safety (NWCOHS).The two year OHHAI training program promotes a "One Health" approach to the current lack of adequate research and best practices regarding the occupational health of animal workers. OHHAI Scholars must do their practicum and thesis work on topics related to animal worker occupational health. Animal workers interact with animals in a wide range of settings ranging from veterinary clinics to research laboratories, farms, markets, zoos, aquariums, and wildlife environments. They face unique and important health issues including exposure to zoonotic infectious diseases, allergens, and injury risks.

One health researchers identify hot spots of tick-borne diseases in Mongolia - George Mason University (USA) - Thursday, November 16, 2017

One health researchers identify hot spots of tick-borne diseases in Mongolia

George Mason University (USA)

Given the critical role livestock play in Mongolia, transmission of tick-borne diseases can have very real health and economic implications for livestock and the herders that tend to them. Dr. Michael von Fricken explored this association using a multidisciplinary One Health research approach, which focused on the interaction between nomadic herders, the livestock they own, and the tick-borne diseases they are exposed to. von Fricken spent a year living in Ulaanbataar as a postdoc with Duke University, under Dr. Greg Gray, working alongside veterinarians from the Institute of Veterinary Medicine and the National Center for Zoonotic Diseases.

Note: Dr. Gray is an extraordinary physician One Health leader and member of the One Health Initiative Hon. Advisory Board http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php.
