ONE HEALTH: AN APPROACH TO GLOBAL HEALTH CHALLENGES.

Patricia A. Conrad1,2, Woutrina Miller1,2, Anil Deolalikar1,3 and Jonna K. Mazet1,2

1 One Health Center of the University of California Global Health Institute (UC Davis and UC Riverside), 2 Wildlife Health Center, School of Veterinary Medicine, One Shields Ave., University of California, Davis, CA 95616, 3 Department of Economics, University of California, Riverside, CA 92521

The concept of 'One Medicine' has evolved over the past decade into a more holistic, inclusive understanding of a 'One Health' approach to research and training that considers the interdependency of human, animal and ecosystem health. In recent years concern about emerging infectious diseases has increased appreciation for One Health as an integrated global approach to improve human health. This talk will describe the application of the One Health approach to research, education and service that focuses on health at the individual, population, and ecosystem levels. Projects involving University of California faculty that apply and teach an integrated One Health approach to global health challenges will be described, including the 1) SMART (Strategic, Measurable, Adaptive, Responsive, and Targeted) surveillance program currently being established under the USAID-funded PREDICT Program (http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/ohi/predict/index.cfm) to improve global capacity to detect novel diseases with pandemic potential early so as to give health professionals the best opportunity to prevent emergence or control epidemics at the source of spill-over from wildlife to humans; 2) National Science Foundation Ecology of Infectious Disease Project on land to sea transmission of Toxoplasma gondii and our related research on zoonotic pathogen pollution in coastal California ecosystems; 3) Health for Animals and Livelihood Improvement (HALI) Project (http://haliproject.wordpress.com/) in the Ruaha Ecosystem in Tanzania which is a collaborative research and capacity building program exploring the impacts of zoonotic disease caused by restricted water flow, degraded water quality, and increased interactions between livestock and wildlife; and 4) One Health Center of Expertise in the newly launched University of California Global Health Institute (http://www.ucghi.universityofcalifornia.edu/) whose mission is to train and empower future global health leaders from different disciplines to work effectively in action-oriented trans-disciplinary teams committed to developing innovative, practical solutions to problems that threaten the health of vulnerable populations worldwide.
