Rockefeller Foundation Bestows Grant to Fund National One Health Commission
Date:3/5/2009

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An initiative dedicated to fighting zoonotic diseases like avian influenza and West Nile virus and improving public health around the world has received a $100,000 grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

It's estimated that 75 percent of all new diseases are zoonotic, meaning that they are transferred from animals to humans. The American Veterinary Medical Association's (AVMA) One Health concept is dedicated to tackling new and existing zoonotic diseases with unified, collaborative efforts between veterinary medicine and human medicine, and the environmental sciences.

The Rockefeller Foundation grant to the AVMA will help establish a National One Health Commission and a global One Health Initiative dedicated to attaining optimal human, animal and environmental health through the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally.

"It is very gratifying that the Rockefeller Foundation, which has a long and well-recognized tradition of providing support to those who are tackling the world's most challenging health issues, has recognized the practical value of funding the creation of the National One Health Commission to lead this global effort," says Dr. Thomas Monath, M.D., the steering committee representative from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. "This is the first, and perhaps most important, step in implementing our vision of cooperation and collaboration among health care professions."

The One Health Initiative began in 2006 as a part of the presidential agenda of then-AVMA president Roger K. Mahr, DVM. A year later, One Health earned an important ally when the American Medical Association (AMA) partnered with the AVMA on the One Health concept. The AMA became an active stakeholder in laying the foundation for and developing the principles of the One Health approach.
