Why poisoning rats may worsen disease risk for them — and you (

June 20, 2023

“… We study how rats interact with people, wildlife and the environment to better understand public health risks from rats and improve their management. We do this using a holistic approach known as One Health, which looks at all aspects of health and the interconnections between the health of people, animals and the environment. Academic and public interest in One Health has increased dramatically since the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly because it can help to find win-win outcomes that protect both the environment and human well-being at the same time. …”

Inaugural Purdue Antimicrobial Resistance Conference Draws International Attention to Serious Public Health Threat | Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine

June 19, 2023

“… The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported in 2019 that more than 2.8 million cases of antibiotic-resistant infections occur annually in the US, resulting in 35,000 deaths. The increased incidence of hypervirulent and multidrug resistant bacterial pathogens has been attributed to the use, overuse, and misuse of antibiotics (FAO, 2016). “Antimicrobial resistance is a complex problem at the intersection of human, animal, and environmental health, or ‘One Health’ as it is called, which can only be addressed through a multidisciplinary approach,” said the leader of the conference organization committee, Dr. Kenitra Hendrix, Purdue clinical associate professor of veterinary diagnostic microbiology and director of the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory. Dr. Hendrix served as principal investigator on a proposal, submitted last year as part of the Purdue 2022 Conference Competition, that resulted in a $25,000 award to fund the conference.  …”

One Health and Gender: Why The Two Need To Become One   – Impakter

June 16, 2023

Two important subjects not often linked and paraphrasing Tina Turner about emotions, “…neither are secondhand issues”: the opportunity to integrate them comes up this fall at the United Nations General Assembly

“… Gender

Often use the terms “sex” and “gender” are considered interchangeably, but this is incorrect. Gender refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviors, expressions and identities of girls, women, boys, men, and gender-diverse people. …

One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals and ecosystems. It recognizes the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and interdependent (see One Health Initiative treatment). …”

Early Release – Long-term Epidemiology and Evolution of Swine Influenza Viruses, Vietnam – Volume 29, Number 7—July 2023 – Emerging Infectious Diseases journal – CDC

June 14, 2023


Influenza A viruses are a One Health threat because they can spill over between host populations, including among humans, swine, and birds. Surveillance of swine influenza virus in Hanoi, Vietnam, during 2013–2019 revealed gene pool enrichment from imported swine from Asia and North America and showed long-term maintenance, persistence, and reassortment of virus lineages. Genome sequencing showed continuous enrichment of H1 and H3 diversity through repeat introduction of human virus variants and swine influenza viruses endemic in other countries. In particular, the North American H1-δ1a strain, which has a triple-reassortant backbone that potentially results in increased human adaptation, emerged as a virus that could pose a zoonotic threat. Co-circulation of H1-δ1a viruses with other swine influenza virus genotypes raises concerns for both human and animal health.
