April 28, 2020 -- The One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team* [commonly called the One Health Initiative (OHI) team] proudly announces merger with and inclusion under the auspices of Public Health Vaccines LLC, PHV (http://www.phvaccines.com/) and Crozet BioPharma (https://www.crozetbiopharma.com/), a One Health oriented multi-disciplinary team of development professionals with 10 successful launches of biological products that prevent or treat important human diseases. The Public Health Vaccines and Crozet team is Currently partnering to develop a viable vaccine against the Nipah virus. Public Health Vaccines and Crozet BioPharma’s goals and aspirations are in concert with that of the One Health Initiative (OHI) team’s credo, i.e. “One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment.” and “One Health implementation will help protect and/or save untold millions of lives in our generation and for those to come.”
Crozet BioPharma’s founding motto is: “Accelerating development of biological products that prevent or treat important human diseases. Our founding principle is to have a lasting, positive impact on people's health and lives. We take pride in putting our knowledge and expertise to work for this cause every day.”
Notably, as a part of the coordinated effort to integrate One Health principles with vaccine development, funding was secured for development of a new updated OHI website design from The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) https://cepi.net/ under a grant to Public Health Vaccines.
OHI team operations and website postings will continue on a pro bono non-commercial foundation thanks to the visionary approach graciously and generously proposed and advanced by PHV and Crozet BioPharma executives.
Postings on the new OHI website https://www.onehealthinitiative.com will continue to be under the longstanding policy of offering free core access and posting consideration to all reputable One Health entities in the U.S. and worldwide. Indeed, this benevolent union further incorporates the advancements of vaccine development into the international philosophy of the One World-One Medicine-One Health movement. This is especially critical during our current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic challenge and beyond.
It is hoped that this unique humanitarian engagement will serve as a model for others wishing to promote and encourage the One Health concept/ approach for the benefit of all society. In addition, it will hopefully ensure current and future sustainability for access to and archiving of the first of its kind One Health website containing a historically established documentation treasure trove since its inception.
