Sharing news from One Health Day Events and from December, 2022

One Health Happenings
New to the One Health Conversation? Learn - What is One Health?
One Health is an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals and ecosystems. It recognizes the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent. The approach mobilizes multiple sectors, disciplines and communities at varying levels of society to work together to foster well-being and tackle threats to health and ecosystems, while addressing the collective need for clean water, energy and air, safe and nutritious food, taking action on climate changes and contributing to sustainable development. The One Health paradigm forges co-equal, all-inclusive collaborations between animal, plant, environmental and human health arenas, i.e. chemical, engineering and social scientists, dentists, nurses, agricultural/horticulturalists and food producers, wildlife and environmental health specialists and many other related disciplines that fall under its purview. The reader can review a compilation of organizations that are actively working to advance the One Health paradigm shift and many additional  organizations and individuals that declare support for the concept.

Here is a sampling of One Health Day 2022 Events
from each global Region
Rabat-Salé-Kenitra, Morroco, Africa
Pour célébrer la Journée Mondiale One Health, l'association One Health Maroc (OHM) organise une journée scientifique le 10 décembre 2022 sous le thème "Résistance aux antimicrobiens / défis et perspectives". La création de l’association OHM en 2019 a été motivée par le contexte mondial et continental marqué par le risque élevé des maladies émergentes et par les menaces dues à la résistance bactérienne aux antibiotiques. Depuis 2015, l’OMS, la FAO, l’OIE et le PNUD portent leurs actions selon une approche "One Health" incitant ainsi à l'articulation de la prévention entre santé humaine, santé animale et environnement. Les différents secteurs concernés par le One Health, santé humaine, animale et environnement participeront à cette journée dont l’objectif est de sortir avec des recommandations pour aller vers l’instauration d’un système de surveillance intégré de la résistance aux antimicrobiens au Maroc.
To celebrate World One Health Day, the One Health Morocco (OHM) association is organizing a scientific day on December 10, 2022 under the theme "Antimicrobial resistance / challenges and prospects". The creation of the OHM association in 2019 was motivated by the global and continental context marked by the high risk of emerging diseases and by threats due to bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Since 2015, the WHO, FAO, OIE and UNDP have carried out their actions according to a "One Health" approach, thus encouraging the articulation of prevention between human health, animal health and the environment. The various sectors concerned by One Health, human and animal health and the environment will participate in this day, the objective of which is to come out with recommendations to move towards the establishment of an integrated surveillance system for antimicrobial resistance in Morocco.
San Borja, Provincia de Lima, Peru
For years in various parts of the world, such as Peru, we have a history that professions outside the health area do not have a clear concept of One Health. That is why ETUS (Student group of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the National University of San Marcos) and the Wildlife Section of the same university, have as their first objective to present to the various institutional media a video of diffusion of the concept. Our second objective is to spread the concept in the school community. Our central idea is to collaborate with the dissemination of the One health lessons material. During the month of November in commemoration of One Health Day, we will have sessions with the children sharing this valuable information about the program. We are sure that these two objectives will help to spread the One Health concept, having as a background that social communication should not be for a single day, it should be sustainable. We are committed to it.
Hong Kong S.A.R., China - Kowloon
A one-day event organized by the Centre for Applied One Health Research and Policy Advice and the first year students of the JC College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences of the City University of Hong Kong. The event's goal is to create awareness about the OH concept, as well as on the main causes of the health crisis the planet is facing. Students from the year one BVM will present a series of posters with basic information on emerging infectious diseases that are relevant for Hong Kong. Our team have also prepared a game where the community will learn about the concept as well as the general measures to prevent EID.

الأعمار يشرفنا حضوركم One health Alliance - Jordan invites the local community in Jordan to attend an in person lecture about One health Day. The lecture will cover the basic concepts of One Health with relevant examples. The lecture will be hosted by Amman youth center and for the public.
Australia - Cherbourg, Queensland
Led by the Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities (AMRRIC). The Cherbourg Visiting Vet program began in 2016, in response to community-identified concerns around their pets. Cherbourg is an Aboriginal community within Wakka Wakka tribal boundaries, Australia. Colonisation has resulted in socio-economic circumstances such that the community seldom have access to veterinary services. Despite this, Cherbourg residents value their companion animals for a wide variety of emotional, utilitarian and cultural reasons. The collaboratively delivered One Health focused vet service is provided yearly, at no cost to residents, and aims to mitigate the impacts of dog and cat overpopulation through dog and cat neutering, as well as mitigate zoonotic parasite transfer through anti-parasitic treatments. Community engagement and school education are key to the program, and provide the final year veterinary students with cross-cultural engagement opportunities while the community benefits from animal health, care and hygiene knowledge sharing. AMRRIC has a number of One Health initiatives ongoing in Australia.

November 15, 2022. One Health is referenced 22 times in this evaluation that assesses the quality of the World Bank’s early response to the COVID-19 crisis and the initial steps toward recovery, focusing on the health and social response. The report concentrates on the relief stage and support to restructure systems in the first 15 months of the pandemic (February 1, 2020, to April 30, 2021) in 106 countries. A (separate) parallel Independent Evaluation Group evaluation looks at the World Bank Group support to address the economic implications of the pandemic…..the report ….. makes four recommendations for the future, namely:
  • Use its crisis recovery efforts to strengthen the resilience of essential health and education.
  • Apply a gender equality lens to health and social crisis response actions across sectors. This includes countries being prepared to provide services to protect women and girls, for example, in health, education, and other sectors.
  • Assist countries to strengthen regional cooperation and crisis response capacities for public health preparedness. This includes support to multisector One Health-type platforms.
  • Build on the COVID-19 experience to strengthen its internal crisis preparedness so that it has the tools and procedures ready to respond in future emergencies.

Because zoonoses emerge from the dynamic confluence of people, animals and their products, environment, agriculture, wildlife, vectors, food, water, antimicrobial use, and changing ecosystems, experts and organizations must rethink and reimagine ways to integrate and coordinate their actions. These include adopting systems thinking, committing new investments in prevention, improving public and animal health infrastructures and associated surveillance systems globally, expanding human capacity and skills, and merging communities and resources across the domains of One Health.

New White Paper
White paper released by the U.S. Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies on November 7, 2022 funded in part by the U.S. Geological Survey, Ecosystems Mission Area. Penned in large part by Shane Mahoney, president and CEO of Conservation Visions, deputy chair of IUCN’s Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group, this white paper follows on AFWA’s One Health Resolution released September 21, 2022 at its annual meeting in Ft. Worth, Texas. A recording of the Plenary Session at the annual meeting, One Health: A Prescription For The Relevancy of Wildlife Conservation, foreshadows the white paper.

Introduced in California Senate on February 15, 2022 by Senator Melissa Hurtado. Approved by Governor on September 30, 2022. “This bill would require the State Department of Public Health, the Department of Food and Agriculture, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife to jointly establish and administer the One Health Program for the purpose of developing a framework for interagency coordination in responding to zoonotic diseases and reducing hazards to human and nonhuman animal health, in accordance with the One Health principles set forth by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

  • Developing a global One Health research framework with a realistic scope, actions and goals to advance preparedness and response to infectious disease outbreaks and pandemics;
  • Raising the profile of the need for One Health research and foster collaborative funding schemes;
  • Identifying global and regional successes and challenges in implementing a One Health approach;
  • Collaborating closely with existing One Health networks and communities, including the One Health Commission and One Health High Level Expert Panel;
  • Bringing together diverse communities of research organisations and funders to facilitate collaboration and improve communication within the One Health community, with a stronger focus on LMICs and capacity strengthening.
Released by the Minnesota One Health Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative (MOHASC). MOHASC was launched in 2016 with the mission of providing a collaborative environment to promote judicious antibiotic use and antibiotic stewardship (AS) and to reduce the impact of antibiotic-resistant pathogens of human, animal, and environmental health importance. MOHASC goals include improving AS programs in healthcare and veterinary medicine, advancing understanding of environmental impacts of antibiotic use, and promoting a One Health (OH) approach to AS. This perspective serves as a blueprint for other jurisdictions and advocates for use of this reproducible OH strategy to facilitate broad AS goals.

CABI One Health cases are real-life examples of One Health projects or research in action. Designed for students, teachers and practitioners, they cover important, contemporary topics and focus on practical approaches to solving problems, spanning animal health, human health, environmental health, plant sciences and sociological issues. This competition offers a chance to win £500 and have your case published open access free of charge! For more information, see:
Example Case Study (Recently published)
In addition to delivering advice to farmers, crop-livestock joint clinics are showing their value as entry points for broader actions (pest reporting, referral, technology delivery and follow up), thus
contributing to strengthening healthcare systems for crops and animals. There is potential to further expand this role by linking with public health to address some of the major health problems that are linked to crop and livestock production and which impact on human health. Crop–livestock clinics represent an innovation in service delivery based on existing organizational structures and capacities. They also have the potential to become a practical, hands-on way to put One Health into practice.
Bringing together One Health Knowledge and Debate in a variety of One Health resources, CABI's One Health Knowledge Bank is a new hub for One Health Content. It contains journal articles, cases, book chapters, blogs and news in a single, searchable resource. We are currently building on the existing content types by partnering with organizations to include a wide range of relevant resources. Interested in getting involved?

Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. Hosted by the Royal Society of Canada. As we begin charting next steps toward global recovery from the pandemic, it is critical that we embrace our interdependence as nations, as well as the interdependence of environmental health and all species including humans. The G7 Research Summit on One Health covered three areas of focus: 
  • a One Health approach to climate change and biodiversity loss, mitigating a planet in crisis;
  • learning from Indigenous relationships with the natural world; and 
  • addressing globalization and polarization: towards multilateral One Health solutions for a changing world.

“Roughly 190 countries agreed on a historic plan to halt the decline of wildlife and ecosystems. …. the agreement contains 23 targets that countries must achieve within the decade. ……COP15 is a meeting of countries that are members of a UN treaty called the Convention on Biological Diversity…… You can think of the treaty as a contract between member countries to collectively sustain biodiversity and its benefits. Every country other than the Vatican is a member — except the US. Known as the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, also commits rich countries to pay developing nations $30 billion a year by 2030 for conservation.”

Could this be a featured social responsibility priority for the New Year? It requires a watershed change in the views held by politicians, scientific communities and the public at large but there are hopeful signs….The One Health community has valiantly made its case for many years……But it has never been given its proper due in terms of commitments, research, policies, or resources by politicians, international public non-profit, or for-profit institutions; and it continues to receive insufficient attention from the media.

Learning from the past: The World Bank evaluates its early COVID responses in a new study
November 25, 2022
Author: Richard Seifman  In: IMPAKTER

A World Bank evaluation found that countries were able to act quicker, with good leadership, and pay better attention to quality and institutional strengthening when they had regional (One Health) networks (as well as networks extending to communities). ….The findings of the Bank’s evaluation emphasize the potential of regional cooperation around One Health platforms in countries to help strengthen multi-sector actions and resilience of policies, systems, and services for preparedness and ongoing disease prevention not only for when a crisis hits……Actions related to gender, community engagement, and continuity of essential services, among others, are some of the capacities One Health platforms can help countries develop for sustained disease prevention and communication.

A parasitic disease, canine echinococcosis, has increased in Chile’s Tierra del Fuego province after a governmental dog deworming program was canceled in 2004, according to a study from the University of California, Davis’ One Health Institute and School of Veterinary Medicine. Cystic echinococcosis — also known as hydatid disease — affects more than 1 million people worldwide and is the second most common cause of human deaths from parasitic disease in Chile. It is caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus, which is shed by dogs and can infect people. Dogs acquire the disease by consuming viscera of infected animals, such as sheep, making it prevalent in sheep farms and rural communities. The deworming program had reduced the prevalence of the disease in dogs in sheep farms from Chile’s Tierra del Fuego province from 68.4% in 1978 to 1.2% in 2002. The [recent] study found that without the intensive program, canine echinococcosis has increased to 6.9%, as of 2016.

Health for Animals - Global Animal Health Association
‘One Health’ is built on an understanding that animal health, human health and our shared environment are part of a deeply interconnected system; what affects one will ultimately affect the others. The concept provides an essential framework to address shared health challenges and support global initiatives like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The document sets out the seven most important where human, environmental and animal health overlap. It also provides eight actionable recommendations to enhance One Health outcomes, seen through the lens of those working in the animal health world.

Environmental and human health are closely intertwined. As the One Health paradigm suggests: healthy humans can only thrive in a healthy biosphere. But the world’s mounting environmental crisis has led to the emergence and rapid spread of “eco-anxiety,” defined by the American Psychological Association (APA) as “a chronic fear of environmental doom.”

Author: Enkhtuvshin Shiilegdamba,
….. as time passed they’ve come to appreciate the One Health idea that we are all working to protect human health, livestock health, and wildlife health. There is no wildlife side versus the livestock side.....We all understand now through COVID-19 that global pandemics can emerge at any time and that the best prevention is based on a One Health approach that incorporates and protects health for the benefit of people, livestock, wildlife, and their ecosystems.
