    • Description:
      The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) jointly hosted a One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop for the United States in December 2017. Participants from each of these agencies voted on a list of eight priority zoonotic diseases to be jointly addressed by human, animal, and environmental health sectors in relevant U.S. federal agency programs using a multisectoral, One Health approach. A multisectoral, One Health approach is necessary to effectively address zoonotic diseases and other shared health threats at the human-animal-environment interface. Since the workshop, CDC, DOI, and USDA have established the One Health Federal Interagency Network (OH-FIN), which brings together representatives from federal agencies and departments on a regular basis to exchange information, updates, and opportunities for collaboration in support of One Health activities. A core group from CDC, DOI, and USDA is also developing a One Health Strategic Plan for the United States. This plan includes goals, objectivities, and activities to further multisectoral, One Health coordination and communication, zoonotic disease prevention, preparedness, joint outbreak response and recovery, surveillance, laboratory capacity, antimicrobial resistance, and workforce development. 303885-A Publication date from document properties.
