Session Abstract

This panel will provide insights on effective One Health implementation using model projects between North and South as well as South South partnerships. Developing regions remain hotspots of emerging zoonotic infectious diseases; among recent ones including Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Ebola virus and also various Antimicrobial resistant strains. We plan to summarize key recommendations for building sustainable One Health system and capacity in low resource settings using shared experience and engagement among global partners via the ICOPHAI and associated partnerships. In addition, specific models including Ohio State east Africa One Health model implementation and also the Global Innovation Initiative among U.S., Brazil and U.K partners that focuses on global issues such as antimicrobial resistance, capacity building, Bovine Tuberculosis and Rabies will be included. In addition, the use of advanced electronic technology systems for effective partnership and efficient implementation will be highlighted.
