Series Description

The FDA Grand Rounds is webcast every other month to highlight cutting-edge research underway across the agency and its impact on protecting and advancing public health. Each session features an FDA scientist presenting on a key public health challenge and how FDA is applying science to its regulatory activities.

Lecture Description
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; and by ensuring the safety of our nation's food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation. There are many factors that pose risks or threaten public health. FDA's efforts to improve health goes beyond recognizing disease transmission in an isolated lens of human health, but also acknowledges human-animal interactions and associated environmental factors such as socioeconomic status, behavior, and other social determinants. Addressing human and animal intersectoral factors that are both biological and environmental is a complex endeavor requiring a great deal of knowledge, skills, and resources from various disciplines. However, as health disciplines become progressively specialized, they also become more siloed. One Health is a concept that embraces a multisectoral and transdisciplinary approach to solving health problems by recognizing the interconnection between humans, animals, and their shared environment. Many global changes and activities associated with increased human-animal interactions are enabling disease transmission that become epidemics or pandemics that adversely impact public health. This presentation will explain the One Health Concept and the FDA One Health Initiative. It will also highlight the benefits of One Health and how FDA is operationalizing One Health actions agency wide.
