Today FAO, WHO, and OIE launches a guide for countries on taking a One Health approach. This guide, referred to as the Tripartitie Zoonoses Guidelines (TZG, , provides principles, best practices and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface. It is flexible enough to be used for other health threats; for example, food safety and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). By using the TZG and its associated operational tools countries can build or strengthen their national capacities in:
  • Multisectoral, One Health coordination mechanisms
  • Strategic planning and emergency preparedness
  • Surveillance and information sharing
  • Coordinated investigation and response
  • Joint risk assessment for zoonotic disease threats
  • Risk reduction, risk communication, and community engagement
  • Workforce development

(About our need for Social Sciences)
" We need to recognize that other people (social scientists) know far better how to interact with a community and change practices. Simply having the knowledge of how you break a cycle in terms of the hard sciences doesn’t necessarily translate directly into disease control progammes." Dr. Paul Gibbs at the IDS/DSA workshop: 'The One Health and Zoonoses lens’, October, 2018.

Theme: One Health Regulation and Policy
The KSU One Health Newsletter is a collaborative effort by a diverse group of scientists and health
professionals committed to promoting One Health. The time has come to give to One Health its dimension
in our societies, not only on scientific ground but also on social and political grounds.
“We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road — the one less traveled by — offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.”  Rachel Carson
The Duke One Health Network is a team of more than 20 professionals and students conducting One Health oriented research and training addressing complex health problems through the One Health approach, microbiology, and epidemiology methods. (
Researchers from Asia, Australia, Europe and the UK have begun work on an ambitious five-year project, the UKRI GCRF One Health Poultry Hub , exploring the public health risks associated with poultry intensification in Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Working with local, regional and global stakeholders, they will study how intensification increases risk of infectious diseases, including those with pandemic potential, as well as antimicrobial resistance. They will also explore why certain processes and behaviours are risky, and when and where to test interventions for disease control to meet the growing demand for safe, low-cost poultry meat and eggs driven by population growth.
Delaware Valley University takes ‘One Health, One Earth’ approach
Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA. Led by the Delaware Valley One Health Group ( ) that works to introduce every single student to the concept of dynamic interactions between all life on the planet and the environments in which they function believing that One Health will make students better global citizens who are better prepared to recognize the need for multidisciplinary approaches to the community’s, region’s, nation’s, and world’s issues.

 October, 2018. The programme adopts a ‘one health’ approach to the development of new vaccines, diagnostic tools and mathematical models to combat infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

The UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), in partnership with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), announced a further £3m (US$4m) investment in projects in the Zoonoses and Emerging Livestock Systems (ZELS) programme. The new grants build on six years of interdisciplinary global collaborative research and a £20m (US$26.3m) investment in 11 projects to fight zoonotic diseases in Africa and Asia. Case studies from this One Health research can be downloaded at here .

January 31- February 1, 2019 Workshop -
London, England. Hosted by The Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs) Centre on Global Health Security. A recent analysis of One Health networks operating across Europe, Africa and Asia reveals substantial variation in how the OH principles are being operationalised, a paucity of robust monitoring and evaluation metrics, and little coordination between individual efforts. The meeting was one in a series of events that the Centre is hosting to further explore and understand successes, challenges and opportunities in the efficient implementation and institution-alisation of OH programmes globally. A meeting report will be published, which alongside the report from a meeting in East Africa will provide some insight into the OH approach, how stakeholders view it, and hopefully the commonalities found within each OH initiative.

October 15, 2018 Workshop -
S ussex U, Brighten, UK. One in a s eries of cross-disciplinary events hosted by the International Development Studies Association funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. This workshop considered the value of a development studies perspective in research into zoonoses. A final session used the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework to discuss how zoonoses research can contribute to the challenges faced by developing countries. One group said it helped them to think of themselves as development researchers rather than practitioners of very different disciplines, and wondered if the lens of ‘development’ could be the ‘glue’ to bring interdisciplinary teams together more effectively. h ttps://
