From U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Select Zoonotic Diseases Conference Call - May 1, 2013 “2020 Healthy Pets Healthy Families Initiative” “Healthy pets can lead to healthy people. That’s why the Los Angeles County Veterinary Public Health Program (VPH) started the 2020 Healthy Pets Healthy Families initiative. The county-wide initiative aims to: 1. Create animal health goals based on the latest research 2. Track trends in animal health 3. Create programs that improve both animal and human health The initiative combines the One Health movement with the national Healthy People 2020 model. In 2011, VPH launched the 2002 Healthy Pets Healthy Families Coalition, which brings together physicians, veterinarians, animal health and public health professionals from all over Los Angeles and neighboring counties. The group has set goals for the year 2020 around seven focus areas and will be working together to develop specific strategies and interventions to improve both the health of humans and animals.” Karen Ehnert, DVM, MPVM, DACPVM Director (Acting) Veterinary Public Health Los Angeles County Department of Public Health 313 N.
