The ongoing outbreak of H5N1?commonly called bird flu?and more recently H7N9 and H10N8 serve as strong reminders that people, animals and the environment and inextricably linked. Emerging Infectious Diseases (EIDs) are those new, reemerging or drug-resistant infections whose incidents in people have increased in recent years or threaten to increase in the near future. Zoonotic diseases are those diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans or from humans to humans. As much as 75% of all emerging human infectious diseases are zoonotic. Nonetheless, human and veterinary health professionals fail to acknowledge and understand the interconnectedness of human and animal health. The effective treatment, control and eradication of these diseases require an understanding of the interconnectedness of humans, animals and the environment. The most successful and dramatic examples of real change come from committed individuals?not institutions. Actions that individuals, educators, physicians or researchers can take to save lives and prevent disease include: ? Share One Health concepts with friends and colleagues ? Educate policymakers ? Develop productive relationships with local, regional, and global interdisciplinary professionals to: ? Share surveillance/laboratory data ? Discuss unusual cases ? Cooperate on training, planning and response ? Develop curriculums that include interdisciplinary courses ? Broaden research teams to include researchers from other disciplines ? Target surveillance efforts in areas with social or land use changes ? Host regional interdisciplinary working groups ? Involve cross-discipline epidemiologist when investigation disease clusters ? Develop joint interagency communication strategies
