Systematizing the One Health Approach in Preparedness and Response Efforts for Infectious Disease Outbreaks

02/23/2021 - 02/25/2021
Online NASEM Workshop
Hosted by the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) Forum on Microbial Threats, this meeting examined ways to integrate the One Health approach as part of outbreak prevention, detection, preparedness, and response efforts. It explored research opportunities, multi-sectoral collaboration mechanisms, community engagement strategies, educational opportunities, and policies that can effectively implement the core capacities and interventions of One Health principles to strengthen national health systems and enhance global health security.
  • Day 1, What One Health has accomplished thus far, current state of affairs around the world. The "response" facet of outbreak preparedness was highlighted. 
  • Day 2, What critical changes need to be made right now to incorporate One Health into national and global health systems? The "surveillance and detection" facet of outbreak preparedness was highlighted. 
  • Day 3, What capacities do we need to build down the line to ensure global health security? What lessons have we learned that can help pinpoint priority actions for incorporating One Health into national healthcare systems? The "forecasting and predicting" facet of outbreak preparedness was highlighted.
 
Recording will be available on the event webpage 10-14 days after the event.
