One Health is about working inclusively across disciplines, professions, and sectors from the local to the global level, to improve the health of humans, animals, and the environment. One Health Talk is an opportunity for the collaborative exchange of ideas and information related to One Health topics.

Rabies - A One Health Model Disease 2013
Last year there was a discussion on rabies as part of One Health Talk. This year we want to take the opportunity to examine new developments especially since some regions are moving toward the elimination of human rabies transmitted by dogs. Latin-America is targeting elimination for 2015 and the ASEAN countries 2020. What are the greatest challenges that countries face and how can they be overcome? What new issues are being faced by countries that move toward becoming free of dog rabies? We are looking forward to your insights and opinions!
