The One Health Commission denounces racism and health inequities of all descriptions and urges the world to implement One Health at all levels of academia, research, government and policy as a path to achieving the United Nations Sustainability Goals, Global Health and Global Security.

The Lancet COVID-19 Commissioners, Task Force Chairs, and Commission Secretariat, The LANCET, Published: September 14, 2020, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(20)31927-9
  • Section 1. the origins of COVID-19 and averting zoonotic pandemics  
  • Section 2. To protect humanity from these zoonotic diseases, we need to put more emphasis on the One Health approach. We require new precautions on many fronts: ending deforestation, respecting and protecting conservation areas and endangered species, intensifying the monitoring and surveillance for zoonotic events, and ensuring safe practices ………. “ https://bit.ly/3jf9jcN
The IUCN Wildlife Health Specialist Group and OIE have released recommendations to minimize the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission from people to free-ranging, wild mammals. These recommendations are for people engaged in wildlife work in the field, either in direct contact (e.g. handling) or indirect contact (e.g. within 2 meters or in a confined space) with free-ranging wild mammals, or working in situations in which free-ranging wild mammals may come in contact with surfaces or materials contaminated by infected personnel. This is important as currently almost half of human infections are asymptomatic, which increases the risk of unknowingly transmitting the virus to wild mammals. https://tinyurl.com/y6d9jcol
Funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the global CREID network will involve multidisciplinary investigations into how and where viruses and other pathogens emerge from wildlife and spillover to cause disease in people. It involves collaborations with peer institutions in the United States and 28 other countries. NIAID intends to provide approximately $82 million over five years to support the network. It is believed that this action will enhance our ability to PREVENT pandemics instead of waiting for them to emerge! @CREID_Network Twitter account will be active soon. https://bit.ly/30c50rl
“The media response to the COVID-19 pandemic reveals a fundamental misunderstanding by the general public about the scientific process and cultivates a narrative that too often places blame on individuals for structural inequities. An influx of research without audience-appropriate interpretations, coupled with a lack of representation in the news media, threatens to erode trust in science. To address these challenges, schools and programs of public health might reflect on their curricula and consider placing a greater emphasis on health communication.” https://tinyurl.com/yyup5g9z

From the devastating impacts of the pandemic crisis to apocalyptic wildfires in the American West and around the world to the hurricanes rolling in, these events are a stark reminder that we need much more widespread understanding of the fact that our own health and well-being are intimately tied to how we treat the natural world. Forests, freshwater systems, oceans, grasslands and the biodiversity within them support humanity with (among other things) clean air, clean water, a climate stabilizing mechanism and healthy food. Thus, whether we are talking about mitigating the global climate crisis or preventing the next pandemic, we need to redefine our relationships with wild nature and our fellow species at this critical juncture in the history of human civilization. The health of people, wildlife and domestic animals are all inextricably linked and impacted by how well — or not — we steward environmental and socioeconomic policies.

A concerted and sustained effort is needed to address significant challenges and reverse the upward trends in illness, suffering, and death from vector-borne diseases. This effort must enhance collaboration, coordination, and communication across human, animal, and environmental health sectors, as well as other relevant sectors, to address vector-borne threats at the human - animal - environment interface (a One Health approach).

Have you already explored the Global AMR R&D Hub’s Dynamic Dashboard? It is a platform that continuously collects and presents information on AMR R&D investments considering all One Health sectors (currently human and animal) and is designed to be a resource for everyone working in the field of AMR R&D. The Global AMR R&D Hub, established in May 2018 following a call from G20 Leaders, developed the Dynamic Dashboard to support global priority setting and evidence-based decision making on allocation of resources for AMR R&D through the identification of gaps, overlaps and cross-sectoral collaboration. If you have checked out the Dashboard, the developers of the Hub invite you to take part in a 5-10 minute survey conducted by PPMI with support of BIOCOM to evaluate the Dashboard’s user-friendliness, content and the overall quality.

Fungal diseases are a One Health issue, continue to cause preventable illness and death, and can have similar symptoms to COVID-19. It is important to consider fungal diseases in the context of COVID-19. CDC and partners have organized Fungal Disease Awareness week to highlight the importance of recognizing serious fungal diseases early enough in the course of a patient’s illness to provide life-saving treatment. Increased awareness about fungal diseases is one of the most important ways to reduce delays in diagnosis and treatment, leading to better health results and lives saved. https://bit.ly/34aLHz

New One Health related Courses
FREE online course
Developed jointly by the FAO, OIE and WHO (often referred to as the One Health Tripartite), this new, free online training is available to help advocates and implementers navigate the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide (TZG) and to support countries in taking a multisectoral, One Health approach to address zoonotic diseases. It provides principles, best practices and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface. Watch this video to learn more about the training! https://bit.ly/34bF2Wd
New online e-Learning Course Embraces One Health
Hosted/sponsored by SAFOSO. This course is framed in and embraces the One Health concept approaching diseases in animals and in people in equal measure: for every example in human health used to illustrate an epidemiological concept, an example in animal health is used. Participants are able to draw parallels between human and animal diseases recognizing how epidemiology for animals is very much the same as epidemiology for people. For example, an epidemiological task force on SARS-CoV-2 requires an understanding of how the virus behaves among animals as well as how the disease behaves among people in order to control it.

Neglected One Health Issues

Three out of four new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from animals, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some say this makes stopping the spread of tuberculosis among captive elephants more urgent than ever.


“Such attention to the human–animal bond can utilize social workers’ problem-solving skills to improve delivery of services, identify clients’ risk and resiliency factors, enhance social and environmental justice, expand academic inquiry, and increase attention to all of the vulnerable members of families and communities.”

Courses and Summer Programs
Produced by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and the University of Basel, Switzerland, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this course is very timely. If you wonder whether physicians and veterinarians can work together more closely, join this course. This course will show you that collaboration makes a lot of sense, saving more human and animal lives than either field could alone, and even saving money. You’ll learn theoretical foundations and hands-on practical methods for planning and implementing integrated approaches to health care. New content covers Corona viruses in animals and humans, linking global health security with emerging infectious disease threats. https://bit.ly/309u6Hc 
New FREE Course on Coursera 
Created for the public by Laura Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP, Co-Founder of the One Health Initiative pro bono team and research scholar with the Program on Science and Global Security at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA. This interdisciplinary course covers diverse subjects such as basic epidemiology, public health, public policy, basic microbiology, food safety, and security, zoonotic diseases, sanitation and hygiene, antimicrobial resistance, environmental and ecosystem health, and the national and international organizations that oversee health, agriculture, and the environment. Disease outbreaks including Influenza, Q fever, and Ebola will be discussed. While the course was developed and recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic, the concepts learned very much apply to it. This course emphasizes holistic, not siloed, approaches to health, and disease. https://bit.ly/2BN0UfU
Sponsored by multiple Swiss Universities and organizations. The course presents transdisciplinary research as a living experience. With a basis on sound theoretical and methodological background, five outstanding projects illustrate promising different ways of dealing with complex societal challenges. The projects address a) health care for mobile pastoralists, b) water scarcity in the Alps, c) coping with decline in a mountain village, d) labour migration, and e) governance of antimicrobial resistance. https://tinyurl.com/y2j7g94f

New Book

Fungi throw our concepts of individuality and even intelligence into question. They are metabolic masters, earth makers, and key players in most of life’s processes. They can change our minds, heal our bodies, and even help us remediate environmental disaster. By examining fungi on their own terms, Sheldrake reveals how these extraordinary organisms—and our relationships with them—are changing our understanding of how life works.
