One Health Sweden is a collaboration for researchers with interest in zoonotic infections. One Health Sweden is an integration concept including several universities and governmental organizations that wish to contribute to a sustainable intellectual platform where veterinarians, physicians, molecular biologists, ecologists and environmental chemists with an interest in zoonotic infections can interact and create synergies
The official language of this seminar is Swedish, but some of the talks will be in English.
Date: 29 September, 2016. Organizer: KSLA (The Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry), Stockholm, Sweden.

In Sweden, human cases of Puumala hantavirus (PUUV) infections are reported from the northern endemic regions. We found hantavirus-specific antibodies in yellow-necked mice (Apodemus flavicollis) trapped in human dwellings in the surroundings of the cities of Uppsala and Stockholm, which are situated far south from the traditional endemic areas of PUUV. Because the yellow-necked mouse is the most common rodent in human dwellings, hantaviruses in this rodent species may be important for the public health.

Significant ecological variables of outbreaks of Rift Valley fever (RVF) in Kenya can be used to map risk zones of infectious disease both on a local and global scale as well as predict future outbreaks of the disease. This according to researchers at Umeå University among others in a study published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.
Updated with photos and some of the presentations (5 April, 2016).
The topic of One Health Sweden´s scientific meeting 2016 was A World in Transition - Changes in Infection Ecology.
Among our speakers were Lisa Conti, one of the founders of One Health Initiative, US; Frank Aarestrup, DTU, Denmark; representatives from the 4th International One Health Congress in Melbourne in December 2016 and Sam Sheppard, Swansea University.
Time and place: 17-18 March, 2016, in Uppsala.
Three leading international One Health groups, the One Health Commission, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team, and the One Health Platform Foundation are partnering to create a global “One Health Day”.
On November 3, individuals and groups from around the world, from academic to corporate & non-profit, students to established professionals, will have the opportunity to implement One Health projects and special events under the auspices of “One Health Day.” Projects will highlight the benefits of a One Health transdisciplinary approach towards solving today’s critical global-planetary health challenges.
A new Dutch study shows that patients who have not fully recovered after a probable Lyme infection are not helped by a prolonged therapy with antibiotics. "It is time to provide patients with clear information", suggests professor Björn Olsen.
