New Report on U.S. One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization

May 10, 2019 | Michelle Shapiro

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the final report for the One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop for the United States. Workshop participants from several federal agencies identified and voted on a list of 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.

CDC, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) hosted the workshop to further joint efforts to address zoonotic disease challenges in the United States. For the first time, attendees from USDA, DOI, CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), and state partners prioritized zoonotic diseases of national concern for One Health collaboration representing a critical step towards strengthening One Health in the United States.

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.

The workshop is also informing the development of a One Health Strategic Plan for the United States. This plan will include goals, objectives, and activities to further multisectoral, One Health coordination and communication, zoonotic disease prevention and response, surveillance and laboratory capacity including antimicrobial resistance, and workforce development.
