A One Health in the US Webinar Series
Part 1
June 30, 2021 | 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET
Everyone is welcome to attend.
In light of COVID-19 and previous outbreaks of other zoonotic diseases that pass between animals and humans (Examples: SARS, MERS, HIV Aids, Ebola, Zika etc), leaders at the recent June 11-13, 2021 G7 Summit in Cornwall, England endorsed “strengthening a ‘One Health’ approach across all aspects of pandemic prevention and preparedness.”

What do I need to know about One Health?
Why do I need to know it? Why is it so important?
And what can I do about it?”

Jimmy Tobias, Investigative Journalist whose Dec 2020 cover story for The Nation connected One Health to health security globally as well as in U.S. cities. See also the Nation Conversation Podcast;

To Improve Global Health Security, We Must Not Abandon Tackling Existing Epidemics

June 13, 2021


“… We welcome the focus of world leaders on One Health, which is a collaborative effort to achieve health for people, animals and the environment at the local, national and global level. We urge G7 leaders to go a step further, beyond focusing on zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance, which simply isn’t enough to truly build pandemic preparedness.

Future health threats could develop from different origins, patterns, nature or impact. All aspects of One Health must be included if we are to improve global health security, including tackling other diseases, such as NTDs. …”
