Webinar Recording: Leveraging One Health Collaborations to Enhance Investigation Capacity
Dec 16, 2019
One Health recognizes the interconnection between human, animal, and environmental health. NACCHO recently hosted a webinar to explore how to use One Health collaborations to enhance investigation capacity for One Health issues facing public health, such as vector-borne diseases and zoonoses driven by wildlife diversity, socioeconomic disparities, and extreme weather events.
During the webinar, Arizona Department of Health Services provided an overview of its comprehensive One Health toolkit, which addresses the need to outline and document partner roles and responsibilities, and aims to strengthen existing collaborations, foster communication, and enhance capacity for routine investigations and emergency preparedness purposes. Additionally, Coconino County Public Health Services District joined to discuss how the toolkit helped them with a plague investigation and explore implications of this toolkit for other local health departments.
