The one-health initiative now has a Web site featuring news, upcoming events, and important information about the movement to forge closer collaborations among veterinarians, physicians, and other scientific-health related disciplines.

The Web site, www.onehealthinitiative.com, had more than 4,000 visitors from 110 countries in the first two weeks of going live Oct. 1, according to Dr. Bruce Kaplan, the veterinarian who manages the site collaboratively with his One Health physician colleagues Thomas P. Monath, MD, and Laura H. Kahn, MD.

"The new One-Health Initiative Web site is rapidly becoming the window that reflects upon the dynamic, synergistic opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations," Dr. Kaplan said.

The site offers a host of informational resources, including a link to the AVMA One Health Initiative Task Force report, copies of the One Health Newsletter, and a list of people and organizations that have endorsed the one-health concept.

Supporters are invited to provide Dr. Kaplan with pertinent one-health news, upcoming events, and publications by contacting him at brucekaplandvm@onehealthinitiative.com.
