June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH


3rd paragraph,

“The report also highlights the need for continued and robust funding for AMR given that nationwide testing last year documented 221 cases of so-called “nightmare bacteria,” that can spread resistance to last-resort antibiotics. Robust, sustained investment in multi-agency One Health efforts is vital to combat AMR domestically and globally including prevention, antimicrobial stewardship, surveillance and data collection, research, and development of urgently needed new products including antimicrobial drugs, diagnostics, vaccines and alternative treatments.”

11th paragraph,

“Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture Experts agree that a One Health approach, including both human and animal health, is essential for combating antimicrobial resistance. We urge funding of $54 million for the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria initiative at FDA to support FDA’s efforts to address public health concerns associated with antimicrobial drug use in animals, and better protect antibiotic effectiveness for both human and animal populations. This funding is needed now more than ever, with estimates that antibiotic use in humans and livestock will rise by 50% before 2030. FDA would be able to better collaborate with consumers, producers, veterinarians, and other agencies to monitor AMR through the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) as well as other initiatives by the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine to address AMR.”

Guidelines for Inspection of Companion and Commercial Animal Establishments
Friday, July 06, 2018.

Guidelines for Inspection of Companion and Commercial Animal Establishments

 “Various establishments exist in which animals are held for a variety of reasons. Historically, the management and inspection of animals in commerce and in private keeping have involved a considerable degree of arbitrary evaluation based on the personal experience of the vendor, keeper, advisor, or inspector. Accordingly, relevant protocols and standards are subject to considerable variation. Relatedly, diversity of traded and privately kept species generates significant challenges for those responsible for facility management and inspection alike. Animal welfare and public health and safety are constant and major concerns that require objective methodologies to monitor and control. This report focuses on establishments concerned with the boarding, breeding, storage, vending or handover of animals intended for human “companions” or “pets”, and aims to provide universal objective information for essential husbandry, inspection protocols and an allied inspection assessment tool for scoring establishments.”

Using a One Health Approach, Duke Researchers and Collaborators in China Find Evidence for Cross-species Influenza A Transmission Within Swine Farms
By Laura Borkenhagen, MSc

In an effort to better understand the influenza A virus transmission between humans and pigs, Duke University researchers and collaborators from multiple organizations in China conducted a large prospective study of pigs, pig workers, and six pig farms. Their important work is one of the few to be conducted interdisciplinary way. It was recently published in the high impact journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Duke One Health Mongolian Team Identifies Potential Risk Factors for Zoonotic Disease Transmission Among Horse and Camel Herder Households

By Lexi Sack, DVM

In this pilot study, One Health D43 team 2 researchers from Duke University and The Institute of Veterinary Medicine in Mongolia conducted a survey of 131 households to determine the risk factors for transmitting zoonotic disease in households caring for horses and camels. Public health concerns may arise from using dried manure for fuel and drinking unprocessed river water.

Two Duke Global Health Institute Rising Second-Year Master’s Students Conduct Fieldwork Research in Borneo Island of Malaysia for 10 Weeks


Juliana Zemke is conducting a surveillance of arboviruses in Sarawak, Malaysia. Arbovirus surveillance is vastly under-resourced, relying heavily on passive surveillance systems in Malaysia. The current diagnostic methods for patients presenting with dengue-like infections may misconstrue cases of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika virus infections, given that all three arboviruses have similar clinical manifestations. In this pilot study, Juliana aims to gather evidence to determine the prevalence of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika viruses among patients with dengue-like infections at Sibu and Kapit hospitals. She also plans to validate the clinical value of the T-Cor 8 Real-Time PCR Thermocycler (Tetracore Inc., USA) in detecting these viruses.




Jessica Choi is conducting a field trail of new diagnostics help the local physicians and laboratorians in Kapit more rapidly diagnose a dangerous bacterial disease, melioidosis. The current diagnostics are limited by the time and inaccuracy. For melioidosis patients, the administration of antibiotics is critical as the bacteria causing melioidosis, Burkholderia pseudomallei, may lead to fatal conditions if left untreated. The rapid diagnostic tool developed by the University of Nevada team, which uses lateral flow immunoassay, may be a promising solution for the Kapit communities. This is the first time that this novel tool is being validated in a melioidosis-epidemic site. Jessica hopes that the new diagnostics will provide a better care for the affected individuals and that the Kapit medical team will build confidence when facing the future melioidosis patients.

World Bank One Health Operational Framework 
The World Bank has released an Operational Framework for Strengthening Human, Animal and Environmental Public Health Systems at their interface (“One Health Operational Framework”). This new framework, developed in partnership with EcoHealth Alliance, aims to provide a basis for understanding and implementing a One Health approach in global and country investments. Building on World Bank’s prior “People, Pathogens, and our Planet” reports, it examines the strategic context, rationale and case for investing in One Health, provides an inventory of tools and other resources from the human health, agriculture, environment and disaster risk reduction sectors to facilitate multi-sectoral coordination, and incudes technical guidance for appropriate One Health entry points and operations along the prevent-detect-respond-recover spectrum of preparedness.

<Paper> Core Competencies in One Health Education: What Are We Missing
Ensuring appropriate education and training across human, animal, and environmental health to respond to today’s public health threats is critical - but not easy. The growing trend in One Health educational programs is an important step, though it has been unclear if and how core competencies are applied. 

The authors of the newest National Academy of Medicine (NAM) Perspectives paper assess the evolution of existing One Health core competencies and provide an analysis of One Health degree programs across the US including key areas represented, knowledge gaps, and recommended improvements for preparing future One Health leaders.

Your feedback is requested on The Sustainability of One Health Coordination
The USAID-funded Preparedness and Response (P&R) Project is conducting a pairwise survey to better understand the factors that make One Health coordination and collaboration sustainable. Preliminary results from the survey will be shared at the upcoming International One Health Congress in Saskatoon during the SPI track session “Making One Health operational: the barriers to change glimmers of hope.” Please take a few minutes to participate in the pairwise wiki survey here.

If you have any questions on the survey or would like to see the final report, please feel free to contact Robert Salerno at
