June 23, 2018 - Every year Future Earth’s oneHEALTH Global Research Project conducts an annual horizon scan review of hot topics for One Health that will profoundly change the future of health on the planet. These are targeted at topics deemed to have serious potential implications for health, have been under emphasized or are emerging issues, and can benefit from new thinking informed by a One Health perspective.

CDC, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and 4-H, the youth development organization affiliated with USDA, has developed a graphic novel that follows a group of teenage 4-H members who participate in a state agricultural fair and later attend CDC’s Disease Detective Camp in Atlanta. It is available for free download from the CDC flu website and the Apple iBook store and is available as a free mobile app. https://bit.ly/2Mn1gNM
Forum on Microbial Threats, U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine
Formed in 2017, the One Health Action Collaborative (OHAC) is an ad hoc activity associated with the Forum on Microbial Threats at the U.S. National Academies. The collaborative comprises of both forum members and stakeholders external to the forum from a range of sectors and disciplines associated with One Health. Through ongoing dialogue, information sharing, and deliberations, OHAC works to facilitate and refine implementation of the One Health approach needed to leverage existing programs and to improve effective detection, diagnosis, intervention, and prevention of microbial threats. OHAC’s outputs include publishing discussion papers, providing input on One Health efforts taking place in the U.S. and globally, and hosting seminars and events. In June 2018, OHAC published its first deliverable in the National Academy of Medicine Perspectives called Core Competencies in One Health: What Are We Missing? OHAC is currently working on its second deliverable examining training and professionals for the One Health workforce. Stay tuned for updates! More information ( http://bit.ly/2BjCdXE )

Realizing the complex and interconnected nature of human, animal, and environmental health, Shandong University is taking the lead to develop China’s first ever institute with a One Health focus. h ttps://bit.ly/2wWDQoN
A new center of excellence for veterinary medicine in Asia is based around the idea of One Health, i.e. the idea that the health of humans, other creatures and the environment is interconnected and ought to be viewed and treated holistically. A One Health Tower will house the necessary facilities and learning and research space.  https://bit.ly/2Mbb61e
A unique collaboration by researchers from Kansas State University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City is designed to help save lives and improve the quality of life for humans and animals. The platform functions as a clearinghouse for an array of standardized pre-clinical human and animal health data, which researchers mine for cross-species information and to simulate traditional research with animal models – decreasing animal use. Ultimately, the project will accelerate the development of drugs and medical technology for people and animals.

The One Health Research Foundation was organized in 2017 for charitable research and training purposes in both the United States and abroad, with a special focus on the Caribbean. Based in Miramar, Florida with an office at the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) in St. Kitts, RUSVM contributes to the Foundation and provides research space in its new Research and Pathology Building. https://bit.ly/2MWaH82

Bronx, NY. Hosted by Einstein Global Health Center in collaboration with EcoHealth Alliance and the FutureEarth oneHealth Global Research Project. While the veterinary medical community, and increasingly the public health community, have led One Health efforts to date, the human medical community has had limited engagement in One Health with few avenues articulated in terms of practical implications, opportunities and benefits for involvement. Conference organizers believe that the One Health approach can be highly beneficial for the medical and global health communities in addressing infectious and non-infectious disease challenges.

George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, USA. Bringing together participants from a diverse set of backgrounds to discuss a multitude of difficult biosecurity issues, the Summer Workshop on Pandemics, Bioterrorism, and Global Health Security demonstrated how such communications between stakeholders can be effective. Though speakers often mentioned how the isolation of different perspectives on how to confront biosecurity challenges has led to needless conflict in the past, the environment of the workshop itself provided a clear contrast to that historical backdrop as participants with different backgrounds interacted in lively discussions.

New Books
This book highlights two of our greatest social problems: changing the way we relate to the planet and to one another, and confronting how we use technology (dataism) for the benefit of both humankind and the planet.The author argues that One Health - recognising the fundamental interconnections between people, animals, plants, the environment - needs to inform the UN-2030 Sustainable Develop-ment Goals and that working towards the adoption of a new mind-set is essential. https://bit.ly/2Mp7kla
