Vet2011 - World Veterinary Year

2011 also marks the 250th anniversary of the concept of comparative biopathology, without which modern medicine would never have emerged. Vet 2011 encompasses both the creation of the first veterinary school and veterinary profession, which has been working to improve both animal and human health for the past 250 years.  For additional information and updates, visit:

Animal & Human Health for the Environment And Development (AHEAD)
Facilitating Collaboration to Address Challenges at One Health Interfaces

AHEAD is a convening, facilitative mechanism, working to allow different and often competing sectors to come to the same table and find collaborative ways forward to address challenges at the interface of wildlife health, livestock health, and human health and livelihoods. AHEAD convenes stakeholders, helps delineate conceptual frameworks to underpin planning, management and research, and provides technical support and resources for projects stakeholders identify as priorities. AHEAD primarily focuses its efforts on competition over grazing and water resources, disease mitigation, zoonoses, local and global food security, and other potential sources of conflict related to land-use decision making in the face of resource limitations.


Mapping noncommunicable disease trends around the world

Every year over 9 million people die from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, and chronic lung disease before they reach the age of 60. Ninety per cent of these premature deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. A new WHO report maps the situation country by country, as global leaders prepare to discuss the issue at the United Nations high-level meeting on NCDs in New York, 19–20 September 2011:
