Course Overview – The goal of Rx One Health 2018 is to provide a “prescription” or Rx for early career health professionals to prepare them for immediate engagement in global health careers that will demand effective problem solving skills, cross-disciplinary engagements, and solid foundations in field and laboratory activities. The intensive course is aimed at a level appropriate for recent graduates or students in medical and veterinary schools around the world, as well as other early career health, agriculture, and conservation professionals. The course is based on the principles and practices of One Health. Participants will be immersed in settings that will illustrate that the health of people, animals and the environment are inextricably linked. Rx One Health 2018 will provide participants with direct access to mentors, tools, and knowledge to allow them to apply a One Health approach to their lives’ work. Course activities will all center on exposing participants to real-world One Health situations, challenging them to consider the many inter-related issues that are typical of complex problems, and to see firsthand, and even develop themselves, One Health strategies for overcoming these challenges. All Rx One Health participants will greatly improve their understanding and grasp of One Health competencies:  cross-disciplinarity; communications; professional integrity, ethics and diplomacy; vision integration and advocacy for change; teamwork; and systems thinking. In addition, exposure to concepts and skills necessary for designing and participating in emerging infectious disease and toxin control programs will be provided.

One Health Postdoctoral Associate Position Studying Arboviruses, Mongolia


Duke Universitys Division of Infectious Diseases invites applications from US citizens for a very unique postdoctoral associate position, who will, with a team of two other postdoctoral associates from Mongolia, collect field data, run laboratory analyses, and draft scientific reports in a NIH-funded zoonotic arbovirus research project in Mongolia. The interdisciplinary team is headquartered in the Veterinary Medicine Institute in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.  Employment will begin in early 2018 and continue through April 2019.


The interdisciplinary one health team will work with Mongolian government officials to conduct the study, which will likely consist of travel to rural parts of Mongolia for field collections and conducting laboratory work in Ulaanbaatar. While the postdoctoral team will be closely monitored, the team will be strongly encouraged to conduct independent team problem solving.  After the team completes their study, they will be asked to transfer their knowledge to regional public health, veterinary and environmental health professionals throughout Mongolia, as well as translate scientific findings into prevention practices or products that will help to reduce the burden of zoonotic diseases among pastoral people worldwide.


Applicants should be US citizens and have doctoral degrees in entomology, public health, veterinary medicine, environmental health, medicine, epidemiology, microbiology, or a related field. This fellowship includes annual support with a Kirschtein-NRSA award-level salary ($47,476), round-trip airfare to Mongolia, research office support, Duke University employee benefits (,  plus cost-reimbursable housing expenses (up to $10,000/yr).


Duke University is a comprehensive research institution that includes a remarkably wide range of academic departments and programs ( and is recognized as one of the premier research institutions in the United States. Duke is uniquely positioned to provide excellent opportunities for collaboration with colleagues across a variety of disciplines.


More information about the training program in Mongolia and related activities can be found on the Duke One Health team web site:

“Caribbean Resilience and Prosperity through One Health” (Freely accessible e-book)
Friday, December 15, 2017.

 “Caribbean Resilience and Prosperity through One Health” (Freely accessible e-book)

The book demonstrates how a One Health approach can help overcome major challenges to health and prosperity in the Caribbean. Many of these problems, like climate change, food security, ocean health, and emerging diseases arise from the interactions of people, animals and our shared environment. This book draws on the ACP-EU [African, Caribbean, and Pacific – European Union] funded UWI [University of the West Indies] project, One Health, One Caribbean, One Love, as well as other individuals and institutions in the region. It showcases Caribbean experience and people who are able to develop One Health solutions to some of the most pressing Caribbean problems.”
