Zoonotic viruses-- represent an important group of pathogens that are responsible for a growing number of significant epidemics. SARS coronavirus, Ebola, Nipah virus, avian influenza, and perhaps most importantly, HIV, are all recently emergent zoonotic viruses that originated in wild animal populations and have caused significant morbidity and mortality in human, and in some cases, animal populations. Zoonotic viruses can have profound health and economic impacts globally, even when occurring in relatively isolated regions, thereby making them a significant challenge for the global health community. The majority of viral pandemics are triggered by human activities such as deforestation, agricultural expansion and intensification, urbanization, hunting, travel, and wildlife trade. To be able to minimize the impact of emerging viral zoonoses requires an understanding of the viral diversity within key wildlife reservoirs, the types of human behaviors that increase exposure to an infection with zoonotic viruses, and the ability to rapidly identify the etiologic agent behind clusters of human or domestic animal disease so that effective interventions can be implemented. During COCA Call, participants will gain a broad understanding of how spillover and disease emergence occurs. We will also discuss efforts that are currently underway to enhance the global community's capacity to detect and respond to the emergence of novel zoonoses.  



At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:


  • Describe how human activities drive zoonotic disease emergence-including examples of human behaviors that promote increased contact with wildlife
  • Describe key elements of an ecological study of zoonotic viruses
  • Explain how Nipah virus and Ebola emerged and why we continue to see outbreaks
  • Explain 'One Health' and how it is used in research and response to zoonotic diseases
  • Explain why wildlife surveillance is important for protecting human and livestock health

In recent years, the collaboration of human and animal medicine has advanced science and improved overall community health. Emerging diseases such as avian influenza, Ebola and Zika have highlighted the importance of collaborative/One Health* efforts between the medical and veterinary professions.

Harris County Public Health-Veterinary Public Health’s Zoonotic Disease/One Health Conference brings together animal and human healthcare professionals under one roof to discuss critical and relevant zoonotic disease/One Health topics with experts in the field. We are committed to creating healthy, resilient communities by promoting and sustaining the health and well-being of humans, animals, and the environment by:

  • Joint education and communication efforts

  • Creating and enhancing multidisciplinary community partnerships

  • Promoting One Health principles

      *The One Health concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals, and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations.

Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017 - Wednesday, January 06, 2016

Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017


“We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.”


Please consider attending the upcoming Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop that will be hosted by NIH on Nov. 29-30, 2017. There is no registration cost but everyone does need to register at the website. We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.

Despite advances, chronic pain is one of the most poorly understood and under treated medical problems facing veterinary medicine today. One of the most frustrating aspects of developing therapeutics for treating chronic pain in veterinary medicine is the lack of validated methods to measure chronic pain in different species and diseases. Similarlytranslational success has often been lacking when taking analgesics from animal models to human clinical trials. Numerous reviews have highlighted a lack of translation of basic research into new approved therapeutics for treating persistent pain in humans. The use of spontaneous painful disease in companion animals is one of the changes that could help improve translation of basic science to new therapeutics to act as a bridge between preclinical and clinical studies. The ultimate goal is to reduce failure rates in human clinical trials with resultant new therapeutics for humans and animals. For this bridge to work, we need valid outcome measures in animal spontaneous disease conditions and opportunities to share and promote knowledge.

We are hoping this NIH workshop will bring research, regulatory, academia, and industry together from the veterinary and human arena to tackle these challenges. 

Please see the brochure http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/Pain%20in%20Animals%20Workshop.pdf and the www.PAW2017.com website.  Please help us spread the word by sharing the brochure and website with your colleagues.  Thank you very much!
