VETERANS DAY November 11, 2019 RE: WHAT IS ... The U.S. Public Health Service: One Health - U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)?
The United States Public Health Service is a division of the Department of Health and Human Services concerned with public health. It contains eight out of the department's eleven operating divisions. The Assistant Secretary for Health oversees the PHS. Wikipedia
What the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) https://www.usphs.gov/ is and What the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)” currently focuses on, see below:
“Working Together for One Health –-- One Health is the idea that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. Learn why One Health is important and how, by working together, we can achieve the best health for everyone.”
One Health - https://www.cdc.gov/onehealth/index.html
One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. It is a collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary approach—working at the local, regional, national, and global levels—with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.
A One Health approach is important because 6 out of every 10 infectious diseases in humans are spread from animals.
