Animals in regions that are geographically remote present challenges for disease containment. In Thailand, local residents are using technology, including digital scanning, to track animals and stop outbreaks before they start.
One Health does not solely depend on creating a vaccine or a therapeutic to tackle novel pathogens, which is often difficult and time-consuming. Instead, it aligns different disciplines to develop holistic and effective approaches to limit the transmission of disease.
Public health systems must be resilient and prepared to face existing and future disease threats at the human-animal-environment interface. This Operational Framework provides a practical reference toward achieving that aim.
Researchers conducted a surveillance system assessment of institutional and individual capacity in Kinshasa and Haut Katanga provinces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for nationally identified priority zoonotic diseases.
A One Health approach is critical to strengthening health security at country, regional, and global levels. However, operationally its uptake remains limited.
The current form of One Health movement has emerged in an unprecedented response to the highly pathogenic avian influenza, a pandemic zoonotic disease.
A new research center is aiming to take on some of the big questions about antibiotic use in animal agriculture, the role that it plays in antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and how to improve health for people, animals, and the environment.
The Southern African Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance – Africa Center of Excellence for Infectious Diseases of Humans and Animals in Southern and Eastern Africa (SACIDS – ACE), is a One Health partnership of medical and veterinary institutions.
There is currently no accrediting body for One Health degree programs, unlike public health degree programs, understandably because One Health is considered more of an approach and less of a discipline; therefore, no standardized structure or expectations exist for these programs.
