The minds and books behind the guiding principle - One Health - adopted this year by the G7, G20 and World Health Assembly to reform public health. By Craig Carter and Bruce Kaplan In: IMPAKTER
Université de Montréal professor Hélène Carabin, an epidemiologist in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and the School of Public Health, is the co-lead author of this 30-page brief. Carabin argues for making animals and the environment part of the human equation in planning for future epidemics.

Digital Essay -
2020 was a year that none of us could have predicted. (As was 2021) Yet in many ways it is a culmination of the predictions we have heard for decades. Authors: Alders R, Dar O, Kock R, Rampa F, Chatham House, October 2020
- Our globalized food systems pose a threat to human, animal, and environmental health
- Our food systems are inherently unequal and further exacerbate inequities
- Actions for multilaterals, governments, communities, and individuals to take NOW, by 2030 and beyond.

"Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come" Victor Hugo

In a world transformed by COVID-19, we've awoken to the need to do things differently.
April 27-29, 2022 

On the occasion of the launching of the new Helmhotz Institute for One Health (HIOH) at the University of Greifswald by The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI), the University of Greifswald (UG), the University Medical Center Greifswald (UMG) and the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute (FLI Federal Research Institute for Animal Health). The rapid development of resistance to vaccines and therapeutics further exacerbates the threat posed by these pathogens. It is increasingly clear that global human health is a product of human-animal and environmental interactions. This means that isolated approaches focusing solely on human or animal health are insufficient to understand the genesis and spread of infectious diseases and to enable the development of innovative coping measures. The planned HIOH in Greifswald therefore takes a holistic approach that focuses on the health of humans and animals within their environment. The OHCG 2022 aims to promote interdisciplinary interaction and collaboration between the different approaches and directions of human, animal, and environmental health within One Health research, as a prerequisite for the further development of the entire research field. Organized into three sessions: 1. Pathogen-host-environment interactions, 2. Past, present, and future of zoonotic events 3. Antimicrobial resistance, vaccinology, and prevention. Questions contact the Scientific Committee:
Workshop Report Released
The Forum on Microbial Threats of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a virtual workshop on February 23-25, 2021, titled Systematizing the One Health Approach in Preparedness and Response Efforts for Infectious Disease Outbreaks. The workshop gave particular consideration to research opportunities, multisectoral collaboration mechanisms, community-engagement strategies, educational opportunities, and policies that speakers have found effective in implementing the core capacities and interventions of One Health principles to strengthen national health systems and enhance global health security. This Proceedings of a Workshop summarizes the presentations and discussions of the workshop.
Wildlife Disease Association new mission statement highlights commitment to One Health. 

Previous statement: The mission of the Wildlife Disease Association is to acquire, disseminate, and apply knowledge of the health and diseases of wild animals in relation to their biology, conservation, and interactions with their environment, humans, and domestic animals

New Mission Statement: The mission of the Wildlife Disease Association is to promote healthy wildlife and ecosystems, biodiversity conservation, and environmentally sustainable solutions to One Health challenges.
GOHi and partners will collaborate in a five-year CDC cooperative agreement with the Government of Ethiopia to strengthen workforce capacity within a network of hospitals and a central laboratory to provide rapid detection, response and prevention of infectious disease threats. These funds allow GOHi to continue its One Health-related work to bolster infection prevention and control measures, implement laboratory quality assurance to maintain high levels of accuracy and proficiency and build capacity through training, mentoring and evaluation. GOHi’s project is part of the CDC’s Global Action in Healthcare Network, one of two global networks established by the CDC to combat antimicrobial resistance and infectious diseases that will span more than 50 countries worldwide. The CDC has awarded $22 million to nearly 30 organizations around the globe.
Hands-on graduate class introduces students to One Health approach. Started in summer 2018, this course provides field experience in outbreak investigation for students from all three universities.
Offered in Spanish and Catalan by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), this program provides interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary training to professionals from different areas of knowledge to analyze the risks of the climate crisis for human health, assess the possible impact, and propose adaptation and mitigation solutions. [Note: While not ‘exactly’ the same (Planetary Health focuses on human health and would never be talking about comparative medicine or human-animal bond), One Health and Planetary Health are closely related sister movements and the One Health Commission applauds the similarities and much needed efforts].

Conference Theme: Global Health = Human Rights

In areas where Histoplasma is common, people who work in construction, demolition, and extraction occupations and in agriculture and forestry industries may be at higher risk for histoplasmosis. People who work in other occupations or industries and are exposed to bird or bat droppings or are involved with activities that disrupt the environment are also at risk.The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has created a website to provide information needed to understand and prevent work-related histoplasmosis in the United States. It is intended to help readers understand what histoplasmosis is, recognize activities that might expose workers to Histoplasma, and identify methods to protect themselves and others from exposure.

September 2020
Led by the UNIGE Institute of Global Health this new program was rolled out in parallel in Geneva and in the UNIGE campus in Kenya located at the heart of Kakuma Refugee Camp. The programme aims to build local knowledge and capacity fostering “One Health” champions to reinforce the local and national health system. The pedagogic approach provides an overview on Global Health challenges at the human-animal-ecosystem interface and the importance of the One Health approach, and introduces students to scientific research through interdisciplinary and international collaborations and innovation.

Hot Off the Press!
This is the opening chapter of the new book One Welfare in Practice: The Role of the Veterinarian (Ed. Stephens , CRC Press), the first book dedicated to the role of the veterinarian in One Welfare. The One Welfare concept recognises the interconnections between animal welfare, human wellbeing, and the environment. It shows how veterinarians can and are contributing to improving animal and human welfare, offering practical advice as to how the profession can further engage in One Welfare in a range of settings. One Health and One Welfare are parallel conversations moving in lockstep. Chapter 12, 'Working Animals: One Health and One Welfare' by Ben Sturgeon also featurs One Health.

News from the One Health Social Science (OHSS) Initiative
OHSS Recommended reading
Stanford University Press, Eds: Tsing AL, Deger J, Saxena AK, Zhou F, An interactive platform to explore the more-than-human Anthropocene . Originally published in 2020, “Feral Atlas invites you to explore the ecological worlds created when nonhuman entities become tangled up with human infrastructure projects. Seventy-nine field reports from scientists, humanists, and artists show you how to recognize “feral” ecologies, that is, ecologies that have been encouraged by human-built infrastructures, but which have developed and spread beyond human control. These infrastructural effects, Feral Atlas argues, are the Anthropocene.”
The OHSS joins people from different disciplines to actively contribute to global understanding and promotion of the One Health concept with links to social science approaches. Toward this end, OHSS is forming Work Groups to engage professionals and to provide leadership opportunities. Current OHSS Work Group Topics include 1. Climate change, 2. Food security, 3. Infectious diseases, 4. One Health Policy, and 5.Pandemic Control. If you are interested in joining a work group, please send a message to with WORK GROUP and name of the topic in the Subject.
October 3-6, 2022 Conference (Virtual)
[First International Congress of Critical Animal Studies (CIDECA) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico]
“Critical Animal Studies’, an emerging field in the world academy on reflection and critique of the interactions between humanity and other animal species in the search for ethical conditions of respect to their primary interests. Critical animal studies have been built on the intersectionality of the humanities, the social sciences, and life sciences.”
June 29 – July 1 2022 Conference
2nd Annual Conference of The Global War Against the Rat and the Epistemic Emergence of Zoonosis project
University of Saint Andrews, Scotland, Bringing together perspectives from the humanities and the social sciences in dialogue with the life sciences, this online conference seeks to break new ground in the hitherto understudied medical and health dimensions of species invasivenesseluc. It will elucidate how species invasiveness has been linked to medical and health questions, the epistemological, political and ethnographic realities of making this connection, and to examine how medicalized notions of “invasive species” have shaped relationships between humans, animals, plants, microbes, land use, and the environment. Submit abstracts by February 28, 2022. https://wwrat.wp.s
April 8, 2022 Symposium
University of Leeds, UK, This interdisciplinary symposium will explore the potential futures of care in light of recent critical interrogations of the human, life and care, the emergence of affective technologies (including social robots), and the turn to entanglement in critical and cultural theory. Special interest in papers that theorize care beyond the human, the animal, or even the biological, exploring how care functions both within and beyond what Elizabeth Povinelli calls “the carbon imaginary”, her term for Western epistemologies’ covert conflation of life and being, biology and ontology.” Proposals due by January 31, 2022.

One Health Issues IN the News!
Author: Janet Midega In: StatNews
A paper published January 2022 in The Lancet shows that AMR was the direct cause of at least 1.27 million deaths in 2019 — more than many widely recognized causes of death, such as malaria and HIV/AIDs. ... The world must now move from awareness to urgent action and use the new data to make informed decisions about policy development for mitigating antimicrobial resistance and accelerating measures under AMR national action plans, whose progress has often been hampered by a lack of prioritization and shortage of long-term financing.

The referenced scientific paper - Global burden of bacterial antimicrobial resistance in 2019: a systematic analysis, Murray C, et. al., The LANCET, January 19, 2022, DOI:org/10.1016/S0140-6736(21)02724-0

February 9-10, 2022 Workshop
Hosted by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine
Research to advance understanding of the ecology and biology of wildlife species is more important than ever as the world confronts issues ranging from biodiversity loss to the emergence of zoonotic diseases. This workshop will focus on challenges associated with the unique welfare challenges of conducting research with biologically diverse vertebrates living in varied habitats, for which guidance resources on wildlife research sometimes conflict and recommendations outlined in the current version of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (8th edition) are not always aligned. Discussion topics include perspectives on animal welfare considerations; laws, regulations, and permits associated with fish and wildlife; wild animal population concerns; the role of veterinarians in wildlife research; restraint and handling of animals in the field; and transition of wild animals to captive settings. Free registration:

Air pollution is one of the greatest environmental threats to human health. It can result in heart and chronic respiratory illness, cancer, and premature death. Currently, no single satellite instrument provides ready-to-use, high resolution information on surface-level air pollutants. This gap in information means that millions of people cannot take daily action to protect their health. Help NASA deliver accurate, high-resolution air quality information to improve public health and safety! Check out this competition to wind Cash Awards.
