One Health Happenings
New to this 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.

Thank you so much to the global community of One Health Stakeholders and those who led One Health Day events this year to teach about One Health and One Health issues. This map is an impressive way to demonstrate to policy makers just how One Health is resonating and being embraced. [See also the Who's Who in One Health Organizations maps.] In December we will feature a sampling of One Health Day 2022 Events from all global regions.
On 17 March 2022, the heads of the four organizations – QU Dongyu, the Director-General of FAO, Monique Eloit, the Director-General of OIE, Inger Andersen, the Executive Director of UNEP, and Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of WHO, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by which UNEP formally joined the former Tripartite (FAO, OIE and WHO) as an equal partner to form a new Quadripartite Collaboration for One Health.

October 18, 2022 Hybrid Event
Berlin, Germany. Co-organized by the Quadripartite organizations (FAO, UNEP, WHO, WOAH) with support from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Museum für Naturkunde, and the Foundation Healthy Planet – Healthy People. The OH JPA was developed in response to international requests to prevent future pandemics and to promote health sustainably through the One Health approach. It outlines the commitment of the Quadripartite organizations to collectively advocate and support the implementation of One Health. It builds on, complements and adds value to existing global and regional One Health and coordination initiatives aimed at strengthening capacity to address complex multidimensional health risks with more resilient health systems at global, regional and national level. This launch event served as an occasion for the Quadripartite members and government represen-tatives to present the plan and discuss opportunities for implementation. Recording available. See the One Health Joint Plan of Action document. See an OH JPA overview document.

Held in Singapore.
Hosted by SingHealth Duke NUS Global Health Institute. Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of the Republic of Singapore, officially opened the Congress. Over 1000 One Health practitioners from around the world attended in person with over another 1000 attending online. In-person participants marveled at being able to meet colleagues face-to-face, many for the first time after many years of working together online. A Session on the Quadripartite One Health Joint Action Plan was led by the Point of Contact for each Quadripartite organization, Dr. Jean Philippe Dop (WOAH), Dr. Fransesco Branca (WHO), Dr. Keith Sumption (FAO) and Ms Doreen Robinson (UNEP). Over 150 abstracts were accepted for oral presentation and almost 300 for poster presentations. See Conference Tracts. #WOHC2022
In Singapore:
Presented by Cheryl Stroud, Executive Director, One Health Commission. Full implementation of One Health requires both ‘top down’ and ‘bottom up’ actions. To assist in the ‘bottom up’ piece of the puzzle, the global community of One Health stakeholders needs to be better ‘connected’. We are ‘not’ calling for yet another non-profit organization, just better ‘communications, collaborations and coordination’ among global One Health stakeholders as called for in the new OHHLEP definition of One Health….to work more closely together for One Health and to provide a more informed, more coordinated, more unified voice for One Health:
  • so organizations working for One Health can find each other, discover their commonalities, overlaps, synergies, to join hands and work ‘together’
  • to share One Health news from all global regions, all professions – so the right hand of the One Health movement knows what the left is doing – so we can ‘support’ each other’s efforts and become ‘force multipliers’!!!!!
  • to share educational, job, and volunteer opportunities
  • to speak in a unified voice to the public, to governments, lawmakers and policy makers urging focus on ways to ‘prevent’ infectious disease outbreaks and environmental contamination and degradation
  • to engage more social scientists and other disciplines.
Listen to a recording of the call.
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 re-imagine ways to integrate and coordinate their actions. This includes 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. See also: the Recorded Webinar and Op-Ed accompanying release of this publication.

7. We welcome the approval of the Financial Intermediary Fund (FIF) for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (PPR), and the $1.4 billion in contributions pledged to the fund so far. Supported by the G20 countries, as well as other donors, and in partnership with the WHO, the FIF will allocate financing where investments are most urgently needed to bolster pandemic PPR and fill key capacity gaps. We ask the WBG to continue strengthening coordinated, inclusive, and expert-based action with multilateral partners for a One-Health approach. This and other global health initiatives are essential to building the core capacities needed to prevent and contain future pandemics, while also strengthening public health systems and moving towards universal health coverage.
October 24, 2022 Report Press Release:

New World Bank Group Report
The number of emerging infectious disease (EID) outbreaks has grown to several hundred per year since 2000. Recent diseases such as SARS, avian influenza, Ebola – and the enormous health, economic, and societal impacts of COVID-19 – have not yet solicited global unity on the importance of preventing pandemics rather than responding to outbreaks as they emerge. What will it take for world leaders, countries, organizations, and communities to understand that prevention is better than cure? This report is a clarion call for the universal adoption of an integrated approach to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems. It sheds light on the benefits of prevention to serve as a wake-up call for policymakers and finance ministers. It further outlines an investment framework and One Health architecture for zoonotic disease prevention. Compared to the sky-high cost of bringing pandemics under control, relatively modest investments in prevention will pay huge dividends.

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.
See the Summit Agenda, List of Participants, and Breakout Session Groups.
Introduced June 17, 2022 by MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, as ‘An Act respecting pandemic prevention and preparedness’, this bill recognizes that animal health and welfare is deeply interconnected with human and environmental health and therefore a multidisciplinary, One Health approach is needed to mitigate pandemic risk and impact. See the World Animal Protection Canada social media post about the bill.
October 21, 2022 Press Release
NEW YORK, NY – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced her groundbreaking One Health Security Act to prevent, detect, and respond to biological threats. The One Health bill would create a federal council charged with preventing, detecting and responding to biological threats that significantly impact our national health, economy, and national security.
  1. One Health Security Council: A new Deputy National Security Advisor would lead a One Health Security Council within the Executive Office of the President responsible for coordinating whole-of-government One Health Security-related activities.
  2. One Health Security Strategy: The One Health Security Council would develop a strategy that would advise the President with respect to the integration of domestic, foreign, and military policies relating to One Health Security to enable Federal agencies to cooperate more effectively.
  3. One Health Security Activities: The One Health Security Council would recommend funding allocation for activities that would be critical to improving our biodefense and ability to defend against natural, human-generated and accidental biological events.
This bill has not yet been introduced in either the Senate or the House of Representatives.

The Human Research Standards Organization (HRSO) of Canada is working with The Canadian Foundation for Animal-Assisted Support Services (CFAS) to create a suite of four essential National Standards of Canada for the Animal-Assisted Human Services Industry Sector, the first of its kind globally. AAHS are not standardized through the NSCs or regulated by Canada’s public sector. Consequently, access to AAHS, such as animal-assisted healthcare, social, justice, and corrections services, is inconsistent, ambiguous, and confusing, and quality cannot always be ascertained. The absence of NSCs has the potential to harm consumers, the public at large, and the animals involved in service delivery, while impacting the credibility of service providers and essential resources to sustain and foster innovation. The first published NSC outlines the requirements for the development of a management system for Animal-Assisted Human Service Providers and Professionals to:
  • increase transparency and accountability of the delivery of AAHS;
  • establish essential requirements and best practices for AAHS administration and governance; and
  • promote a voluntary, third-party, AAHS conformity assessment program to cultivate a credibility chain.

Wildlife veterinarians work to maintain animal health and a healthy relationship between humans and wildlife, and while most work for government wildlife management agencies, others work at zoos and aquaria, academic institutions, wildlife rehabilitation facilities and private practices. A five-part AVMA series will highlight their work and impacts on human health. In this photo Dr. Ole Alcumbrac holds a Mexican grey wolf being evaluated as part of a cross-fostering program, which trades genetically appropriate captive-born pups into wild litters to supplement and enhance populations in the recovery effort for the endangered subspecies.

“Conservationists have long pointed out human health depends on a healthy environment. This is a very clear example. We found Hendra virus never jumped from flying foxes to horses when there was abundant winter nectar…….Protecting and restoring bat habitat and replanting key tree species well away from horse paddocks will boost bat health – and keep us safer.”

In search of food, bats are roosting closer to agriculture. That raises the risk of viruses spilling over from animals to humans…….research tells a story about why it’s important to protect bats that have gained a somewhat unfair bad rap for exposing humans to new kinds of viruses. At the end of the day, we actually influence each other’s ability to live in a healthy environment. It’s part of a concept called “One Health” that looks at how the well-being of plants and animals is important for public health.

Investment to prevent and prepare for the next pandemic requires enlightened self-interest in public health
October 26, 2022 Authors: Vivek Kapur, Sindura Ganapathi, Cheryl Stroud, James Wood, Peter Hudson, Gagandeep Kang, Richard Seifman In: IMPAKTER
“Given the considerable attention and coordinated efforts towards pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response,“prevention” appears neither favored nor supported with sufficient research, resources and resolve. Why is this so?    This question is important to answer because, for many, compared with preparedness and response, not prioritizing prevention seems misguided since it is likely the least costly to finance and offers the greatest benefit. “
October 25, 2022 Author: Richard Seifman  
Heightened attention to One Health is far from “Mission Accomplished” but the World Bank and UN agencies have come forward with the strongest call yet for pandemic prevention. In the past, we have seen good intentions fall by the wayside when more immediate, and perhaps politically sensitive, issues take the spotlight. It can happen with One health, especially in this time of a global pandemic and countries on the tip of recession as a result of the War in Ukraine. Understandable, but “we” cannot let it happen for our and the sake of future generations.

In a large-scale effort to reduce human infectious diseases and conserve human and animal life, researchers have collated and reviewed the evidence for 46 solutions that aim to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. These solutions, published August 1, 2022 in the Lancet Planetary Health, cover a broad swath of ideological and geographical ground, from accessing health care in Borneo, to restoring forests in Madagascar, to controlling pythons in the Florida Everglades.

One Health in Action Success Stories
What does One Health have to do with neuropsychosis and schizoprenia?
“Swamp Boy” tells the tale of a bright 14-year-old boy who suddenly hears demonic voices and experiences sudden-onset psychosis—He thinks he’s turning into Swamp Thing, a green, plant-covered monster. The story follows his parent’s hellish journey into the medical system as they struggle to save their oldest son from permanent residency in a psychiatric ward. His psychiatrists are convinced he has schizophrenia—until his determined father solves the mystery behind his delusions, offering the family hope and a cure...... (Hint: It was Bartonellosis.) This story provides readers with a window into the suffering, stigma, and barriers that this family faced in looking for reasons behind their son’s sudden-onset mental illness. It also illuminates the fault lines in our current medical system, especially the ease with which doctors prescribe symptom-masking drugs over the difficult process of exploring possible infectious causes behind a mystery illness. Read the full story.

Closing date: 26 October 2022
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a severe threat to human, animal, plant and environmental health, global food security and livelihoods, and currently, there is inadequate financial support for the sustainable implementation of national action plans on AMR. The existing estimates of the costs of antimicrobial resistance containment measures and national action plan implementation may underestimate the actual cost of responding and not responding to antimicrobial resistance in a One Health context. The Quadripartite has agreed to establish a Quadripartite Technical Group on the Economics of AMR (QTG-EA) to advise on estimating the AMR cost and associated co-benefits of AMR response across different sectors to inform global and regional, and country prioritization and resource mobilization.

On 26–27 September 2022, the International Livestock Research Institute launched a new project, Selecting efficient farm-level antimicrobial stewardship interventions from a One Health perspective, that will use a One Health approach to assess which farm-level antimicrobial use interventions are most efficient to prevent the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in poultry in Senegal. The project will provide explicit impact estimates and ranking for a range of farm-level antimicrobial resistance interventions in Senegal, highlighting where future research could be most valuable in understanding intervention efficiency from a One Health perspective.
2019 WHO program
"Recognizing the Africa region’s vulnerability to VBDs in the context of climate change and the paucity of research being undertaken in this regard, the WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) and the International Centre for Research and Development (IDRC) developed an initiative toward filling this gap. These projects focused on technical capacity building that stressed integration of social and ecological factors, including stakeholder and community participatory methods, combined with medical, entomological, and epidemiological methods. With the new initiative, TDR and IDRC sought to address VBDs in the broader development context of human vulnerability to climate change. The result was a new portfolio of research projects in the Sahel and Sub-Saharan Africa. A One Health Scorecard was developed to improve local health by a guided operationalization of transdisciplinarity and adaptive management in the context of social-ecological systems.

December 14, 2022 Webinar
In the Shared Planet Shared Health series
12:30 - 1:30 PM Eastern 
Hosted by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in its virtual Shared Planet Shared Health series.  Black-footed ferrets once occupied an expansive range in the U.S. stretching from Canada to Mexico— spanning 12 states. Then came the threats of habitat fragmentation, loss of their food source, and Yersinia pestis (the bacteria that causes plague). By 1979, black-footed ferrets were considered extinct, but after decades of conservation efforts and collaboration by Smithsonian researchers and wildlife experts, they’re coming back from the brink of extinction. Speaker Paul Marinari will discuss the ongoing efforts to reintroduce the black-footed ferret into its native range and the threats still impacting this critically endangered carnivore today. Image credit: Victoria Lake, Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute

Author: Leslie Reperant, veterinary disease ecologist Published by Johns Hopkins University 
his book takes the reader by leaps and bounds around the world and through time, to examine the extraordinary circumstances—evolutionary, ecological, and otherwise— that converged and gave birth to some of our most wicked and unexpected plagues and pandemics. Beyond the traditional historical account of human infectious diseases, it unveils commonalities and coincidences that, throughout the ages, consistently preceded or triggered the emergence of new infectious diseases or the flare-ups of old ones. It teaches us the One Health responses and solutions humanity must unfailingly apply to curb the rise of future plagues and pandemics.
