June 6, 2022 Virtual Roundtable Discussion
10:30 am to 12:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time
In a consensus decision aimed at protecting the world from future pandemics, the World Health Assembly — the decision-making body of the WHO — proposed establishing a pandemic treaty at a special session held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, 2021. There are on-going global discussions about what topics such a legal instrument should cover. This Roundtable will highlight the importance of integrating the One Health (OH) approach into pandemic prevention and preparedness as part of a pandemic treaty. Drs. Andrea Winkler, Carlos das Neves, Katinka de Balogh, Suzanne Hindmarch, and Arne Ruckert will reflect on how well OH principles are currently embedded in global governance and what can be done to improve its uptake through the pandemic treaty.

Please email your inputs and suggestions (by June 1, 2022 and beyond) to:  Your feedback will be valuable. You can send your written comments in any of the official World Bank languages (Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish). Consider evaluating the paper for implementation of One Health, i.e. Is there mention of veterinary public health and environmental health or is the paper focused mostly on human health?
24 April 2022 WHO website posting
In 2018, Kazakhstan started exploring the One Health approach to zoonotic diseases with the conduction of the International Health Regulations Performance of Veterinary Services (IHR-PVS)  National Bridging Workshop (NBW). The NBW is a three-day event facilitated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), bringing together public health and animal health participants..... In 2020, WHO started the global initiative to follow up and support the implementation of the NBW Roadmaps by establishing a One Health/NBW Catalyst network in countries that have completed NBWs. Kazakhstan was the first country with a One Health Catalyst position in the WHO country office filled at the beginning of 2021. By the end of 2021, the network included 11 countries with plans to expand to 15 in early 2022.
Joint statement by the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) and the EU Health Policy Platform
Planetary health and one health concepts are currently not central to public health education [in Europe]; this is creating an unprepared workforce. Education that improves climate-health literacy helps build consensus and becomes the foundation for the acquisition of the expertise required to contribute to the solution of climate problems, build understanding of the gravity of the twin crises of climate and health, the urgency of the threat, awareness about what can be done and the skills to work with others to take the first steps…..6. Including concepts such as One Health and Planetary Health in the development of public health and healthcare professionals’ education frameworks in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuous professional development, recognising the ongoing contribution of experts and people with lived experience in these areas.

  • CABI One Health, a new open access journal, due to be launched later this year as part of a new set of transdisciplinary One Health resources, is now open for submissions.
  • One Health Cases will provide a growing database of peer-reviewed educational, practical cases, and will be an invaluable resource for students, teachers, academics, public stakeholders, and industry practitioners.
  • A One Health Knowledge Bank will follow later this year, and will be a hub of relevant knowledge, information and data, including journal articles, cases, book chapters, curated species datasheets, and an extensive collection of hard-to-find grey literature in a single searchable database.
CABI issued an open call in December 2021 for editorial board members for the One Health resources. The full list of the Editorial Board can be seen here.

Author: Richard Seifman In: IMPAKTER
“Eight ‘key themes’ are covered, from climate change to equity, but One Health is not treated as a separate agenda item…… Because global health is much more than an industry matter, and One Health is critically multi-sectoral with implications much beyond the human health sector, it should be given its own space on the WEF agenda."
Authors: Shayan Sharif and Jeffrey J. Wichtel   In: The Conversation 
There is an urgent need for governments to invest in local and global initiatives that focus on the human-animal-environment interface of disease. One such investment includes funding higher education programs in One Health. These programs will prepare the next generation of Canadians to address societal grand challenges — like pandemic preparedness — with a One Health lens, enabling the formation of teams whose expertise transcends disciplinary boundaries…… Now, more than ever, we need to ensure that both local and global One Health initiatives are developed as a core component of planning preparedness for future pandemics.

Editorial for the inaugural ISOHA Journal
By Cheryl Stroud, DVM, PhD, Executive Director, 
One Health Commission
“We hear a lot today about training the next generation of scientists and global citizens. It’s become almost a ‘buzz’ word. But for me, seeing students all over the world embracing and working to further One Health, seeing young people develop their career paths with One Health thinking, gives me a peek into the future. I see a growing critical mass of young professionals who will, quite literally, change the world as they implement One Health …….Many of you have heard me refer to One Health as a ‘Ray of Hope for the Future’. Students intensify that ray of light and hope. Congratulations to each of you for your leadership for One Health. As you bring all professions to One Health thinking, you are, in fact, the next generation of HOPE.”

ISOHA invites all One Health student enthusiasts from across the globe to submit One Health related articles for our upcoming issue of the ISOHA Journal. Any article related to One Health may be submitted.
