Second Annual Global One Health Day 2017, November 3, 2017
An innovative and ambitious One Health training and research program has been launched to build a regional network of individuals and institutions able to deliver high-quality research into the linkage of human health / wealth to livestock and the environment, in the context of how people interact now and how they interacted in the past.
To date there has been "considerable heterogeneity of approach and quality of reporting in One Health studies. In addition, many researchers who publish such studies do not include or integrate data from all three domains of human, animal, and environmental health. This points to a critical need to unify guidelines for One Health studies. This new report details the Checklist for One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence (COHERE) to guide the design and publication format of future One Health studies."

One Health, Domestic Violence and
Veterinary Study Examines Animal Abuse Within Domestic Violence
, presented at the
10th Annual Veterinary Forensic Sciences Conference, New York City
'You can't make this stuff up'. The National Link Coalition has started a new feature in its LINK-Letter: each month they will share dramatic, first-person accounts of life (and death) inside the cycles of violence such as stories from abuse victims whose pets were targeted by their abusers to hold the entire family hostage. If you'd like to share your personal stories or (Veterinarians and Physicians those of your clients/patients, anonymity guaranteed), please contact Phil Arkow. email@example.com
The One Health movement has brought veterinarians and physicians together over a wide range
of common interests. We hear often about animals serving as
for human exposures to environmental hazards and zoonotic diseases and many are familiar with the 'canary in the coal mine' saying. But pets can also be sentinels for domestic violence.
( The LINK-Letter, National Link Coalition)
Ongoing: Available year-round
This course provides an opportunity for veterinary, medical/public health professionals, and students to refresh and gain knowledge of key zoonotic diseases of companion animals. It is approved for 10 hours of CE for veterinarians or veterinary technicians in jurisdictions that recognize AAVSB RACE approval. All participants receive a copy of the
by the same title as the course. Registration cost is $250 USD.
his One Health Field School program takes place yearly in May/June in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. Veterinary students work in an interdisciplinary team to improve the livelihood of the pastoralist Maasai population that primarily depends on livestock production for their survival.
