"May there never develop in me the notion that my education is complete but give me the strength and leisure and zeal continually to enlarge my knowledge."
- Maimonides -
The pro bono “One Health” team of Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP, Bruce Kaplan, DVM, and Thomas P. Monath, MD announces that an autonomous free access ‘One Health’ website is now available online at www.onehealthinitiative.com . This has been under consideration for many months. Over the past months, inquiries about such a venture have been received from individuals in the U.S. and other countries. The most common comment heard has been “a One Health website is not only important but a must…as soon as possible!”
The developers envision this website as a method of providing worldwide ‘One Health’ Initiative information for the general public, political and governmental leaders, news media and all ‘One Health’ professionals, advocates and supporters. As the ‘One Health’ movement evolves via the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) ’One Health’ task force Steering committee/National One Health Commission, it is hoped that this website will eventually be transitioned/merged under their auspices.
The ‘One Health Newsletter’ and its links will be prominently featured on the site as a major ‘One Health’ international educational publication. In addition, there will be links to the AVMA ‘One Health’ task force recommendations published in the Journal of the AVMA (JAVMA) and other pertinent ‘One Health’ publications.
Drs. Kahn and Monath serve as contributors to the Newsletter and Dr. Kaplan serves on the editorial board. All three have been closely allied with the Newsletter since its inception. It should be noted that Dr. Monath served as a member of the AVMA ‘One Health’ task force.
