We are pleased to announce the development of a new CORE Group Interest Group on One Health. One Health is a multisectoral, transdisciplinary approach that promotes the interconnections between the health of humans, animals, plants and the planet we share. Over 75% of novel infectious diseases are from animal sources, contributing 2.5 billion cases of human illness and 2.7 million deaths annually, mostly in developing countries. Given the increasing frequency and intensity of animal borne disease outbreaks, the global health community has taken up the call for a One Health approach to prevention, detection and response to outbreaks, as well as an examination of related modes of transmission within the environment. CORE Group’s One Health Interest Group supports coordination, communication, and collaboration for strengthened community engagement across human, animal and environment sectors before, during and after outbreaks.
