Welcome to the second annual report of One Health and Zoonoses projects that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is conducting at 17 international sites, including 15 countries, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The purpose of this Report is to facilitate communication, collaboration, and coordination of animal-human interface activities in order to maximize the impact of CDC's global presence. The Report is prepared by the One Health Office (OHO), National Center for Emerging and Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), CDC.
This Report describes collaboration between CDC field staff and subject matter experts stationed in Atlanta, GA and Fort Collins, CO. During the period covered by the Report, April 2012 through May 2013, support for international staff and projects came primarily from CDC core funding; the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Global Affairs; the CDC Global Disease Detection Program; and the CDC NCEZID Emerging Pandemic Threats program allocation. Feedback following release of the first Report included requests for greater uniformity of information among different sites and provision of in-country contact information; the current report addresses these concerns. In addition, we were asked to specifically address the issue of how a CDC country office or animal-human interface assignee can prioritize zoonotic diseases in-country. Thoughtful prioritization was seen as necessary for seeking and allocating funding, identifying diseases and locations for surveillance activities, and increasing the efficiency of program activities and public health impact. In response to this request we have developed a semi-quantitative prioritization tool that is currently being piloted at several sites. We look forward to distributing this tool more widely in the near future.
Table One includes all 15 countries and presents an overview of One Health and Zoonoses related parameters across the sites. Information for the table originates from a variety of sources, including reports from CDC Country Offices and formal reports from Ministries. The remainder of the Report is presented by country, or organization (i.e., OIE and FAO). This section contains country profiles and country-specific tables that provide greater detail regarding individual projects as well as general and project related contact information.
