April 22, 2007 Dr. D. A. Henderson, legendary leader of the worldwide smallpox eradication program.

"I thank you for your email and congratulate you and your colleagues in promoting the "One Medicine" concept. It is an initiative that is long overdue but, at the same time, I don't personally identify dramatic solutions that are apt to change the landscape in the short term. I would note that when one has had the good fortune to have enjoyed the tutelage of **Jim Steele during my tenure at CDC and periodically ever since, as a friend, the one medicine concept becomes well engrained. Indeed, when I came to Hopkins as Dean in 1977, I cast about to determine how we might link up with a veterinary school for research and educational purposes. Unfortunately, geography was simply too great a hurdle to overcome.

Bottom line: I would be more than happy to do whatever I could in support of your efforts."

 *D.A. Henderson, MD, MPH - Professor, Department of Medicine, School of Medicine; Resident Scholar at the Center for Biosecurity of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; former Dean of Johns Hopkins School of Public Health from 1977 to 1990; Directed WHO global smallpox eradication program 1966-1977 (USA).  The late Dr. Henderson was a physician member of the One Health Initiative Advisory Board

**James H. Steele, DVM, MPH – Professor Emeritus, University of Texas School of Public Health (USA).  The late Dr. Steele was a veterinarian member of the One Health Initiative Advisory Board.  Dr. Steele was considered by many as the doyen of veterinary medical public health in the 20th and early 21st centuries.

Dear colleagues,


We, the staff at ReproDoc Ltd recognize that human health, animal health, and ecosystem health are linked. We therefore are delighted to endorse your “One Health” initiative to promote, improve, and defend the health and well-being of all species by enhancing cooperation and collaboration between physicians, veterinarians and other scientific health and environmental professionals. We feel it is our responsibility to improve animal health and welfare, in order to minimise the negative environmental impact the agricultural industry has on our planet. In our present century the world faces increasing challenges from emerging diseases and their transmission across species.  It is vital that all health professionals work closely together in joint research, communication and education, for the greater public health good, and we are pleased to see your initiative and would like to support your excellent work in the future.


With our best regards,

Published in WONCA [World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA)] E-Update Friday 18th January 2019


WONCA and OneHealth
One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. It is a collaborative, multisectoral, and trans-disciplinary approach—working at the local, regional, national, and global levels—with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment. 

WONCA is pleased to support all aspects of the OneHealth initiative, and all those who heard Dr Kate Anteyi’s plenary at WONCA’s world conference in Korea in October will know how important this interdisciplinary approach is in preventing the next major epidemic.

Ilaria Capua 1,* and Giovanni Cattoli 2



“The One Health concept recognizes that the health of human beings, animals, plants and the environment is interconnected and interdependent. This idea has been shaped over the centuries and has gained momentum and traction as anatomy, physiology, microbiology and other disciplines have substantiated earlier theories. Here we recall major historical milestones which have contributed to shaping the One Health concept as it is today, and discuss the past and future drivers in view of future challenges in an evolving scenario.

A one health opinion editorial RE: ideal protocol for future international one health congress meetings, all inclusive modus operandi

Bruce Kaplan DVM ORCID Icon, Laura H. Kahn MD, MPH, MPP ORCID Icon, Thomas P. Monath MD, Lisa A. Conti DVM, MPH ORCID Icon& Thomas M. Yuill PhD ORCID Icon

‘…Whereas previous Congresses have been very good by all accounts, they have not adequately been all inclusive with respect to addressing a broad spectrum, co-equal recognition and exposure to both One Health essential priorities, i.e. global public health and global clinical health considerations, among a few others. Frankly, this has been known to occur due to concerns about securing adequate funding for public health research projects vis-à-vis clinical health missions, etc. In addition, there have been justifiable complaints regarding the meetings being “too veterinarian oriented without enough physician and other health science professional representations.” Hopefully, this next Congress will demonstrate a more ecumenical approach while addressing the issue of attracting a broader spectrum of health science oriented attendees. Human, animal and environmental health (eco-health) are in dire need of such a far reaching protocol endeavor. Spotlighted International Congresses need to become free from sectarian predominance, or even the hint of tribalism. They need to take the high road: begin “appealing to their better angels” in the true spirit of “One World-One Medicine-One Health.” An accurate and complete mosaic image of one health requires that all pieces be present and in place.’
