News Release In: AAAS EurekaAlert.
In May 2021 the Harvard Global Health Institute and the Center for Climate, Health,and the Global Environment at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, launched an International Scientific Task Force to Prevent Pandemics at the Source. Their Report emphasizes One Health recommending actions directed at spillover prevention that include greater investments in forest conservation, especially in the tropics; better biosecurity around livestock and wild animal farms; and establishment of One Health Platforms that work to reduce spillover risk. The report also recommends that current investments in strengthening healthcare systems and One Health platforms in low- and middle-income countries be leveraged to jointly advance conservation, animal and human health, and spillover prevention…..A recent analysis suggests that the costs of addressing spillover in emergence hotspots through forest conservation and One Health approaches would amount to USD $22 - $31 billion per year, a fraction of the economic and mortality costs of responding to these pathogens once they have emerged. [Ref.124]
Since early in the pandemic, zoo animals have contracted the virus. First, tigers and lions at the Bronx Zoo in April 2020; later, a gorilla troop at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. In June 2021, two lions died at a zoo in India after testing positive for COVID-19. Veterinary vaccine maker Zoetis is donating hundreds of doses of an experimental SARS-CoV-2 vaccine made specifically for animals so zoos across the country can vaccinate big cats, bears, ferrets, mink, primates and other vulnerable animals.

Our approach to ensuring human, animal, plant and environmental wellness cannot occur in silos. The New Jersey One Health Steering Committee has worked with the NJ legislation to provide evidence and encouragement to commence a multidisciplinary One Health task force committee. This task force will facilitate discussion amongst all disciplines to focus on short- and long-term solutions promoting a natural balance in nature and improved health outcomes for all.

Vaccinating animals is a more cost-effective and humane approach to disease control than waiting for sick animals to spread their microbes to humans. An example of a One Health approach using this prevention strategy was the deadly Q fever outbreak in 2007-2009 causing disease in sheep and goats in the Netherlands spread to humans. A vaccine against the disease was administered to the animals, marking the first time that a vaccine in animals was used to prevent Q fever in humans.

There is an urgent need to integrate One Health education into medical school curricula, and the current COVID-19 pandemic highlights this need. We cannot continue to lecture about Lyme disease, Ebola, Zika and West Nile Virus without including how deforestation, climate change and the loss of biodiversity led to these infections. Harvard Medical School and the Franklin Park Zoo have developed a One Health elective to address this need for future physicians.

G20 Health Ministerial Meeting taking place
With 75% of new diseases emerging from animals, the G20 must fund and implement a One Health approach to prevent future pandemics and ensure that any new funding mechanism for One Health initiatives complements and enhances animal health systems. The Action for Animal Health coalition launched a campaign urging G20 countries to support four transformative actions for stronger animal health systems. 
  1. Ensure communities have access to animal health services
  2. Increase and upskill the animal health workforce globally
  3. Improve access to safe medicines and vaccines for animals
  4. Strengthen early warning disease surveillance systems that are effective from the community level upwards

PAHO One Health Policy released 
"The aim of this policy on One Health is to foster coordination and collaboration among the different governance frameworks of human, animal, plant, and environmental health programs in order to better prevent and prepare for current and future health challenges at the human-animal-environment interface. Of priority concern for One Health are risks that affect the systems on which society depends—health, agriculture/animal production, and environment. The policy includes six strategic lines of action that can provide valuable guidance for the actions of national health authorities and for the technical cooperation activities of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau (PASB or the Bureau). "
Seven academic institutions from 6 countries will receive grants for health research projects that address: Trypanosoma cruzi (congenital Chagas disease) and Hepatitis B, trachoma, schistosomiasis, and tuberculosis. Funded by a new project between the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases.
for Advancing Surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 and Other Emerging Zoonotic Diseases
through the American Rescue Plan
The proposed Strategic Framework uses the One Health approach, which embraces the idea that complex problems that affect the health of humans, animals, and the environment are best solved through improved communication, cooperation, and collaboration across disciplines and sectors. Immediate focus will be on expanding surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 to a wider range of animal species (including domestic species and wild animals), increasing diagnostic testing capability and capacity and conducting multisectoral investigations of new animal detections and exposures.

Marlena Takes is spending her summer 2021 working to increase awareness of the One Health approach at UConn and in the broader community. Takes is the first to hold this new internship focused on One Health with UConn Extension.

Across Tennessee, and around the globe, we are facing health challenges. The University’s One Health Initiative, pioneered by the UT Institute for Agriculture and now engaging scores of faculty across three colleges, may
evolve into a sixth university Research Institute.

Because the drivers of antimicrobial resistance lie in humans, animals, plants, food and the environment, a sustained One Health response is essential to engage and unite all stakeholders around a shared vision and goals. Calls for One Health are found throughout this report.
August 24, 2021 - In response to the 2019 Interagency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance report, the UN Secretary General (UNSG) requested the Tripartite Organizations (FAO, OIE and WHO) to propose the terms of reference and mechanisms for establishment of the One Health Global Leaders Group on antimicrobial resistance. The One Health Global Leaders Group on Antimicrobial Resistance , which includes heads of state, government ministers, and leaders from private sector and civil society, called upon all countries to significantly reduce the levels of antimicrobial drugs used in global food systems. This includes stopping the use of medically important antimicrobial drugs to promote growth in healthy animals and using antimicrobial drugs more responsibly overall. The call comes ahead of the UN Food Systems Summit which takes place in New York on 23 September 2021 where countries will discuss ways to transform global food systems.

The WHO European Centre for Environment and Health has been closely following the research on green and blue spaces because of their importance in addressing human and ecosystem health in urban planning, especially in the context of climate change. Particular attention has been paid to the mental health effects of such spaces. The EKLIPSE Expert Working Group on Biodiversity and Mental Health conducted two systematic reviews on the types and characteristics of green and blue spaces, in relation to a broad set of mental health aspects. The reviews demonstrated the overall positive relationship between green and blue spaces and mental health.
On March 29, 2021, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) (the “Partners”, now often referred to as the Tripartite-Plus) launched a joint call for expression of interest to constitute a One Health High Level Expert Panel (OHHLEP). From over 700 applications received, 26 international experts were appointed in May 2021 to serve as members. The Panel is multidisciplinary, with experts who have a range of technical knowledge, skills and experience relevant to One Health. Their First Meeting was on May 17-18.

One Health Issues In the News
Microplastic pollution is a growing problem facing our waterways. Fion Ferreira, 20, is currently in the process of designing a device which uses a magnetic extraction method to capture microplastics as water flows past it. The device will be small enough to fit inside water pipes to continuously extract plastic fragments as water flows through them. He has also been working on a system that could be fitted to ships so they can extract plastics on the oceans. Regarding microplastics, the young inventor says, "It is not just a problem of the health of our environment, but really a problem that concerns all of us and our health.”
In a recent study, researchers from the University of Michigan and Victor L Fulgoni from Nutrition Impact, LLC, created a scale that combines the environmental impact of foods alongside their health effects to help consumers improve their dietary health while protecting the environment. Among their findings, they discovered that just 10% of the average calorie intake is responsible for over a third of the average dietary footprint. By substituting this and the most harmful dietary items, people could benefit their health and the environment.
