The 32 nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in Ŭstanbul 13th to 17th of September, 2015 - Tuesday, March 10, 2015

WORLD VETERINARY CONGRESS, ÝSTANBUL - 2015

 

“…The 32nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in Istanbul 13th to 17th of September, 2015 organized by Turkish Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) …

As we all know that, veterinarians play a leading role for performing disease surveillance of specific zoonoses and therefore, they are central to the human–animal relationship in terms of one health concept. So that, the risks regardless of whether they are threaten animals, humans or both, can be prevented at their source in animals.

Within the scope of one health concept, all necessary measures are needed to be taken for control and eradication of animal diseases, also here in Turkey. While speaking about the measures, the measures like; programmed and strategic vaccination, quarantine, test applications, cleaning and disinfection, slaughtering of animals, control of animal movements, and closure of the inappropriate livestock markets can be given as examples. At this point, I should add that, Turkey has already succeeded to eradicate some animal diseases and the efforts continue to achieve the same success for widely distributed animal diseases.

October 29, 2015 (8:30am-3:30pm)
Georgetown University Medical-Dental Building
3900 Reservoir Road, N.W., Washington DC
Medical Auditorium (1st Floor)

“One Health” is the integrated three-part paradigm for infectious diseases that “spillover” from animals to humans and can cause epidemics: (1) human health, (2) animal health, and (3) ecohealth.

The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) was launched in 2014 by the United States government (White House, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of State, USDA, and others), the WHO D-G Dr. Margaret Chan and 28 nations, World Animal Health organizations OIE/FAO, and others to address global infectious disease threats, e.g., MERS, Ebola, pandemic influenza.

This symposium will explore the relationship between One Health and the GHSA. 

Dean Stephen Ray Mitchell, MD, MBA, Dean for Medical Education at Georgetown University School of Medicine, will provide the welcoming remarks and Daniel Lucey, MD, MPH, Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University Medical Center, School of Foreign Service, and Georgetown Law, and Senior Scholar, O'Neill Institute, will moderate the symposium.  The event is sponsored by Georgetown University Medical Center's Department of Microbiology and Immunology.

The symposium is open to the Georgetown University community and the public.

NIAA Antibiotics Symposium Brings Together Industry Leaders in Animal and Human Health – Nov 3-5, 2015

Colorado Springs, Colo. – The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will be hosting its fifth annual antibiotic symposium, November 3-5, 2015 in Atlanta, Ga., at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown. This year’s conference is titled, Antibiotic Stewardship: From Metrics to Management and will be a unique forum bringing together leading researchers, government officials, retailers, and industry professionals in animal and human health.

Dr. Steve Solomon, [MD], a physician will be the Symposium’s moderator and brings over 30 years experience with the National Center for Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the Center for Disease Control.  He currently owns a consulting agency -- Global Public Health Consulting. “This is not just a gathering to discuss the challenges faced by the varied sectors,” says Dr. Solomon. “It is about a rich exchange of information, the development of a metrics framework, and moving forward on this very contentious and vital subject.”

NIAA has been at the forefront of driving the conversation about antibiotic use in animal agriculture and the related human health component. With increased consumer interest on this subject, and government focus on the rise, solutions from this diverse group of professionals and leaders will go a long way in filling the information gap that exists in the public and private sectors. 

Solomon goes on to say, “It’s important to hear from people we don’t necessarily agree with. Everyone’s goal is to use antibiotics in an optimal way.”

For more information or to register online go to AnimalAgriculture.org/2015-Antibiotics-Symposium or contact the NIAA by calling 719-538-8843 or emailing niaa@animalagriculture.org.

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture provides a forum for building consensus and advancing proactive solutions for animal agriculture—the aquaculture, beef, dairy, equine, goats, poultry, sheep and swine industries—and provides continuing education and communication linkages for animal agriculture professionals. NIAA is dedicated to programs that work towards the eradication of disease that pose risk to the health of animals, wildlife and humans; promote a safe and wholesome food supply for our nation and abroad; and promote best practices in environmental stewardship, animal health and well-being. NIAA members represent all facets of animal agriculture.

International Conference on the Politics and Ethics of Infection

“The Politics and Ethics of Infection conference will showcase cutting edge and multidisciplinary research in how we think about and respond to the threat of infectious disease. From information surveillance to quarantine, from the of security to communities of resistance, researchers will explore how economic, ecological, political, community-based and institutional contexts generate and structure the spread and the control of infectious diseases, and the ethical concerns and consequences thereof. Research will be presented in streams around surveillance, intensification and resistance, One Health, communication, research, migration and movement, settings, communities and histories. ...

One Health for the Real World: zoonoses, ecosystems and wellbeing

 

 

 

 

 

 

A high-level symposium for policymakers, practitioners and researchers

 

 17-18 March 2016 at the Zoological Society of London

Ecosystems provide services that maintain and improve human wellbeing, such as food provisioning and disease regulation. However, they can also generate ‘disservices’, such as reservoirs for new, ‘emerging’ infectious disease from wildlife. Healthy ecosystems and healthy people go together.Yet the precise relationships between these remain poorly understood. Understanding the interactions between ecosystem change, disease regulation and human wellbeing is an interdisciplinary challenge which the scientific community is only beginning to address.

The Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa Consortium, in partnership with the Zoological Society of London and the Royal Society, are bringing together leading experts from different fields to: 

  • Present new interdisciplinary frameworks for a real-world One Health approach.
  • Highlight research evidence from field-based settings in Africa and beyond.
  • Debate implications for policy and practice.

Members of the organising committee include Professor Andrew Cunningham (Institute of Zoology), Professor James Wood (University of Cambridge), Professor Melissa Leach (Institute of Development Studies) and Professor Ian Scoones (Institute of Development Studies).
