A $3 million award from the National Science Foundation for this five-year project will train 71 graduate students, including 21 funded trainees, from a variety of STEM fields. It complements an NSF-funded program which recruits undergrad s for a 10-week summer research experience in One Health. The project encourages interdisciplinary research in a range of systems, provides management and policy internships to encourage solutions-oriented practice and training to empower students to communicate with diverse audiences. Women, first-generation students, veterans, students with disabilities and other under-represented groups encouraged to apply. https://bit.ly/33EE5DJ
One Health has long been promoted at U of G as an interdisciplinary approach to promoting health and curbing infectious diseases. The new One Health Institute (OHI) will bring together multidisciplinary researchers from across campus along with external partners to address problems at the intersection of people, animals and the environment. https://tinyurl.com/y5lswjok
This program will provide an in-depth knowledge of One Health concepts that will enhance careers for veterinary and healthcare professionals to make a positive impact. Upon completion, students will be prepared to lead and advocate for issues related to One Health on a global scale. Learn more .  https://bit.ly/2VlG4da
“The One Health approach, where human, animal and environmental health are considered as inevitably linked, is widely accepted as a pillar of public health. The Nagoya protocol, in its current form, does not sufficiently recognize the need for global collaborative research on genetic resources that have the potential to become a risk to public health. The protocol neglects the non-commercial basic research on microorganisms needed for the global capacity to prevent epidemics. Parties to the Convention are urged to consider simplified measures for non-commercial research, in their legislation on access and benefit sharing, including exceptions or fast track options for research on pathogens.” See The Nagoya protocol and research on emerging infectious diseases. https://bit.ly/2pG7n67
USA. New Jersey legislators in August introduced bipartisan legislation, A 5734 and S 4003 , to ensure a collaborative effort occurs in that state. The legislation would establish the "New Jersey One Health Task Force" within the Department of Health. The Task Force, which would include two veterinarians, would be charged with developing a strategic plan to promote inter-disciplinary communication and collaboration between veterinarians, physicians, and other scientific professionals and State agencies, with the goal of promoting the health and well-being of New Jersey residents, animals, and the environment. https://bit.ly/2W0Mmzd
One Health and The Earth Charter Initiative (ECI) in ‘lockstep’
Launched in 2000, the Earth Charter is an international declaration of fundamental values and principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society. The Charter seeks to inspire in all peoples a sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. ECI brings the Earth Charter to education, youth, business, and religion and promotes the Earth Charter as an international soft law document. See:

Prime Example of One Health -
African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks in China pose an unexpected threat to the global supply of heparin due to its impact on pig populations. Since August 2018, China has culled more than one million pigs in efforts to contain the spread of ASF within the country. https://bit.ly/2VXm7JU   

Tuberculosis remains a global health burden. Ahmad et al. used machine learning to develop an algorithm that distinguished active tuberculosis from other diseases with similar symptoms by measuring expression of four proteins in blood samples.

Neglected One Health Issues
Snakebites - Crossing Sectors to address a neglected One Health Issue

Snake bites kill an estimated 81,000–138,000 people and disable 400,000 globally every year. The World Health Organization and the Wellcome Trust are both taking action. https://go.nature.com/2P4ww5a

Berlin, Germany.
Hosted by The German Federal Foreign Office and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). With the historic Manhattan Principles as a foundation, this conference will further incorporate climate change and other global health security challenges at the human-animal-environment interface to create a new set of principles as a call to action: The Berlin Principles.

October 30-November 3, 2019 
Salzburgh, Austria.
Invitational Salzburg Global Seminar and Ending Pandemics program. "Microbes are not deterred by borders, and neither are we." This program will define a set of outbreak timeliness metrics to monitor progress towards finding and reporting outbreaks faster. We have successfully developed and socialized the outbreak timeliness metrics for the public health sector; now we seek to extend them to the livestock, wildlife, vector, and environmental communities. Incorporating these additional elements will result in a comprehensive set of metrics that can be used for One Health surveillance. https://bit.ly/2mpOBhO
