One Health Happenings
New to the One Health Conversation? Learn - What is One Health?
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 inter-dependent. The approach mobilizes multiple sectors, disciplines and communities at varying levels of society to work together to foster well-being and tackle threats to health and ecosystems, while addressing the collective need for clean water, energy and air, safe and nutritious food, taking action on climate changes and contributing to sustainable development. The One Health paradigm forges co-equal, all-inclusive collaborations between animal, plant, environmental and human health arenas, i.e. chemical, engineering and social scientists, dentists, nurses, agricultural/horticulturalists and food producers, wildlife and environmental health specialists and many other related disciplines that fall under its purview. The reader can review a compilation of organizations that are actively working to advance the One Health paradigm shift and many additional  organizations and individuals that declare support for the concept.

New Novella: Teaching One Health to Youth with Fiction
By Laura Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP
This One Health and social justice themed hard science fiction novella is geared for students ages 10 and up. Two parallel coming of age stories collide on a distant planet. Siddhartha, known as Siddie, and his parents joined a small group of families leaving Earth. Blue belonged to a species calling themselves kodrya (ko-drya). Unbeknownst to Blue, Earthlings were orbiting her world and preparing to land. One in particular, named Siddie, would change her destiny. This novella will be a useful teaching tool to educate students about One Health, social justice, and the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

COHA is a One Health network of phenomenal, highly experienced, passionate professionals from across the Caribbean who are very invested in One Health and who work to embrace equity, diversity and inclusion in One Health locally, regionally and globally.
University of Texas Medical Branch, Galvaston (UTMB). "[Dacso emphasized that] One Health is not a framework exclusive to infectious disease but should be perceived as a whole health ecosystem approach to address far-reaching issues such as chronic disease, food security, poverty, and inequitable social determinants of health. He credits to employing a One Health approach a recent UTMB success story with a Nigerian partner program. One Health ultimately helped their collaborators extend typically limited communication channels and work across professions via clear identification of roles. “[One Health] is just a great platform to help bring together different professions and build successful teams”. https://bit.ly3kAR5s
Updates on the Exhibit
Washington, D.C., USA, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Three point three million people viewed the OUTBREAK exhibit between its opening in March 2018 and closing in Oct 2022. To date, over 300 applications have requested the Do It Yourself (DiY) ‘pop-up’ version of the exhibit (from organizations in 55 countries and 47 US states and territories) and that option remains open indefinitely. The full physical exhibit has closed but you can see the Smithsonian’s own DiY 'pop-up' version now established indefinitely in the Museum. It includes bilingual English-Spanish panels and audio-visual kiosks. The Smithsonian remains committed to educating about pandemic risks and One Health with the following activities:

….across all parts of the sub-region, as a result of the collapse of basic infrastructure such as water, sewerage, and power, with supply systems shattered, communities will be treated for the most urgent short-term needs. And already in short supply, many professional cadres will be needed to address the manifold problems that exist early—and later. For example, preventing cholera will need to be a priority…..Indeed, the problems described cut across virtually every sector and aspect of any effort to regain a return to some level of normalcy. That said, dealing with disease risks in a holistic manner must be a linchpin for local and national authorities, encouraged and supported by the international community.

"Could this virus acquire the genetic capacity to spread to infect people readily and spread among them? That's always a possibility," ……….Other experts urge vigilance but think there's no immediate threat.
"It's a potential risk. The likelihood of that happening is, I think, still quite low compared to other risks that we have. But it's a real risk and it's something obviously we have to be prepared for, something we have to watch very carefully."

Jim Steele pioneered the simple but powerful philosophy that human health is intimately connected to the health of animals and our surrounding environment. This book recounts Jim Steele’s historic career as the father of Veterinary Public Health. His 100 year life story is a great inspiration for anyone with curiosity and passion for the health (of all creatures), life and environmental sciences. His vision of Veterinary Public Health helped launch what has become the global One Health movement.
….”This Lancet Series explores the adoption of One Health approaches to improve health security and includes an analysis of the current landscape of preventive, surveillance, and response measures in outbreak situations of emerging and re-emerging zoonotic infectious diseases with epidemic potential as well as other potential public health emergencies such as neglected endemic diseases, antimicrobial resistance, environmental and chemical hazards and natural disasters.”
February 12-13, 2022 Conference
One Health International Forum 2022 in Fukuoka, Japan
“the COVID-19 pandemic showed the relevance of ‘One Health’ principles in the governance of infectious diseases… Sensing this urgent need, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science and Technology,.....launched its First ‘One Health’ project. This programme envisages carrying out surveillance of important bacterial, viral and parasitic infections of zoonotic as well as transboundary pathogens in India, including the North-eastern part of the country. Use of existing diagnostic tests and the development of additional methodologies when required are mandated for the surveillance and for understanding the spread of emerging diseases. This Consortium, consisting of 27 organisations led by DBT-National Institute of Animal Biotechnology, Hyderabad, is one of the biggest One Health programs launched by the Government of India in post-COVID times. The One Health consortium consists of AIIMS, Delhi, AIIMS Jodhpur, IVRI, Bareily, GADVASU, Ludhiana, TANUVAS, Chennai, MAFSU, Nagpur, Assam agricultural and veterinary university and many more ICAR, ICMR centres and wildlife agencies.”

This working paper explains the concept of One Health and how it aligns with ADB’s Strategy 2030 and operational priorities for development efforts in Asia and the Pacific. See page 9 - Executive Summary and pg. 11 - Introduction:
“One Health is an approach to human, animal, plant, and ecological health challenges that starts from a simple premise: these are all interconnected, and their solution demands communication, coordination, and collaboration across multiple sectors, disciplines, and levels of government. Using One Health as a framework is key to post-coronavirus disease (COVID-19) green economic recovery, reaching the Sustainable Development Goals, and global health security. The One Health concept is rapidly gaining traction in the development space and in developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The big-picture issues that One Health is particularly aligned with are highly relevant to the Asia and Pacific region, including zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial resistance, food security, ecological security, pollution and health, and climate change. One Health aligns with ADB’s Strategy 2030 and supports its operational priorities, as well as its aspirations to be a convener of partnerships and essential knowledge solutions provider to DMCs. One Health has the potential to be transformational for the work of international development organizations like ADB—which could be achieved by putting together a cross-sectoral strategy, financial commitment to One Health projects, and active engagement with DMCs and development partners to work together on One Health initiatives.”
February 2022 Documentary
FAO Egypt office, through its Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD), has built strong and enduring ties with the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation (MALR)...... These programmes have enabled the country to strengthen the capacity of the animal health system to prevent, detect and respond to endemic, emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases, specifically highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Through this short documentary, ECTAD highlighted the successful partnership with Veterinary Service; and ECTAD’s role in improving animal health and summarizing its main achievements in Egypt.

  • provides a summary of the SWOT analysis results on the One Health EJP from our 2019 survey of stakeholders, project owners & partners
  • highlights which key One Health EJP project outcomes focused on foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance & emerging threats can be utilised more widely
  • shares outcomes (e.g., protocols, databases, laboratory methods & other tools) applied to antimicrobial resistance/disease surveillance and prevention/detection/response activities

Action for Animal Health have released a new report that gives an overview of the state of animal health systems in lower-and-middle-income-countries, and includes a special focus on Ethiopia and Pakistan. It finds that animal health services are essential to sustainable development, but they are often poorly regulated. Public health and animal health sectors are not talking to each other enough, and the animal health sector is sometimes left out of One Health initiatives.

March 8, 2023 Webinar
Hosted by the US Smithsonian Museum of Natural History OUTBREAK Exhibit Shared Planet Shared Health webinar series. Hendra virus spreads from flying foxes, to horses, and sometimes from horses to humans. The ecology of this transmission route involves an intricate interplay between the environment, bats, horses and humans that has fascinated researchers since the virus was first characterized in 1994. Our understanding of when and why Hendra outbreaks occur has become clearer, and provides insights into how preserving bat habitats can reduce infections in horses and humans. Wildlife disease ecologist Alison Peel will discuss the dynamics of Hendra virus spillover and share some intriguing new research with big implications for how caring for the environment could help prevent disease spillovers on our shared planet.

March 1, 2023 - Webinar
In the Expert Talk Series hosted by the International Alliance against Health Risks in Wildlife Trade
Speaker: Sakib Burza, Health in Harmony. 
Indigenous peoples make up just 5% of the world’s population, yet they manage 25% of the earth’s land and support 80% of the earth’s biodiversity. Tropical forest protection is key to lowering the Earth’s temperature by 1.5 degrees Celsius and meeting the pledge set forth by the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015. Appropriate mechanisms must be identified to create a trustworthy environment to listen, learn and understand the importance of being guided by Indigenous and local communities to be able to develop inclusive and effective lines of action for primary pandemic prevention. Internationally coordinated and cooperative approaches to identify and reduce health risks from our distorted relationship with nature and wildlife must be inclusive and respectful of Indigenous knowledge systems and their communities needs and traditions. Join the meeting from the event webpage.

February 17, 2023 Webinar
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted trust as an important determinant of successful pandemic response and leadership; a prerequisite for the uptake of interventions and behaviour change among communities; and a contributing factor in community resilience. In this series of webinars discussants will "unpack" some of the dimensions of trust in the context of epidemics and pandemics. The first webinar reviewed the lessons learned at the intersection of trust and different responses to health emergencies including HIV, Ebola and COVID-19. The second webinar examined historical trust infrastructures that build and maintain trust within communities such as culture, language, ethnicity, tradition, story-telling and, traditional forms of medicine. With this historical backdrop, discussants explored how community trust infrastructures today can be supported in times of crisis. The webinars can be viewed on the EPI-WIN YouTube channel.

Accompanying principles to the guidelines for prevention, detection, response and recovery from disease risks in and around protected and conserved areas
Published by IUCN, Gland, Switzerland in collaboration with EcoHealth Alliance with support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). One key message made clear from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis has been that sustainability must be a leading priority across all sectors to ensure a healthy and safe future. Tourism is among the industries that have a strong interest to reduce risks and increase resilience toward a more sustainable model in line with a One Health approach.

Healthy people and wildlife through nature protection: guidelines for prevention, detection, response, and recovery from disease risks in and around protected and conserved areas
Published by: IUCN, Gland, Switzerland in collaboration with EcoHealth Alliance with support from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV). This report provides an orientation for Protected and conserved areas (PCA) managers on relevant sources of risk, with actions that can be taken to build up systems to manage disease threats across the variety of PCA contexts. A key message is that protected areas can – and should – play a vital role in One Health approaches to reduce disease risk and improve human, animal, and environmental health outcomes.

By Glady Kalema-Zikusoka, Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian and founder of Conservation Through Public Health, this book is a memoir of her life working with wildlife, her career in conservation and One Health working with both gorillas and people and inspiring people to become change-makers. Dr. Kalema-Zikusoka addresses many species, how alleviating poverty and empowering women help endangered wildlife. This is a very hopeful book for the general public about African wildlife conservation. What’s missing in African conservation is African leadership.

Dr. Susannah Sandrin, Arizona State University, helps make sure the science is sound in the cartoon series The Octonauts: Above & Beyond. This podcast is aimed at young children, but Sandrin says it’s important to communicate accurate science to everyone if people are ever to come to grips with the inevitable effects of climate change.
Dr. Kirk Scirto, a family practice physician in Buffalo, New York, has devoted more than two decades to trying to help others through global health and studying which methods are best. In his book, Doing Global Health Work, he describes how he found it’s more important to listen to people than to try to tell them what to do. In some of the poorest parts of the world, he’s witnessed that people are perfectly able to help themselves, and they have a better understanding of what they need than outside “do-gooders.”
