CHNET-Works! Fireside Chat: One Health--The Landscape Outside of Canada

June 19, 2012 

12:00-1:30 p.m. Eastern Time                         

Come and participate in this unique opportunity to learn about international activities on One Health and to understand the emerging relevance for risk and disease management!
The One Health approach (sometime referred to as One World One Health) considers public health threats through an integrated lens of animal, human and ecosystem health.  In the past decade, the One Health approach has gained international prominence and momentum worldwide.  This has been supported by a number of international events including the One World One Health International Expert Consultation (Winnipeg, Canada, 2009) and Operationalizing One Health (Stone Mountain, USA, 2010).  Both the US CDC and the European External Action Service have been instrumental in moving One Health forward towards implementation.

This Fireside chat will explore current One Health activities that are being undertaken by the US CDC and the European External Action Service.
