The AMR (Antimicrobial Resistance) Trust Fund, a collaborative effort by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO), will scale up efforts to support countries in countering the immediate threat of AMR.
One Health is underutilized in the development of vaccines against shared human and animal disease threats.
The maps incorporate 15 years of data collection covering 70 countries, to reveal where anthrax poses global risks to people, livestock, and wildlife.
The United Nations, international agencies, and experts have released a report demanding immediate, coordinated and ambitious action to avert a potentially disastrous drug-resistance crisis.
This report outlines the process used to prioritize the top zoonotic diseases of concern for the US and discusses the key themes surrounding priority next steps to address these diseases using a 'One Health' approach.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that 75 percent of emerging infectious diseases in people are zoonotic.
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.
