Prioritizing Zoonotic Diseases for Multisectoral, One Health Collaboration in the United States: Workshop Summary   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Document: "The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) organized a One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization (OHZDP) workshop to further joint efforts to address zoonotic disease challenges in the United States. The workshop was held December 5-7, 2017, at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) headquarters in Washington, DC. During the workshop, participants identified a list of zoonotic diseases relevant for the United States, defined the criteria for prioritization, and determined questions and weights relevant to each criterion. Participants identified eight zoonotic diseases as priorities using a semi-quantitative selection tool, the One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization (OHZDP) tool, developed by CDC (Appendix A). Participants then used components of the One Health Systems Mapping and Analysis Resource Toolkit (OH-SMART), co-developed by USDA and the University of Minnesota, to review and visualize the One Health system currently in place to address the priority zoonoses in the United States among relevant federal agencies. The One Health system includes the procedures and processes for transdisciplinary and multisectoral coordination. Next, participants developed specific steps to address the newly prioritized diseases following the workshop."
