Now Available! U.S. One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop Report

Top 8 zoonotic diseases of national concern in the USToday CDC posted the final workshop report from the U.S. One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop jointly hosted by CDC, the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), and the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA).

During this workshop, participants from each of these agencies voted on a list of priority zoonotic diseases to be jointly addressed by human, animal, and environmental health sectors in relevant U.S. federal agency programs using a multisectoral, One Health approach. This was the first time multiple government agencies in the United States worked together to prioritize zoonotic diseases of national concern and is a critical step towards a coordinated U.S-specific approach to One Health.

The workshop report outlines the process, the resulting list of prioritized zoonotic diseases, and discussions and recommendations by the participants on how to work together to address the diseases and strengthen One Health in the United States.
