The 32 nd World Veterinary Congress will be held in İstanbul 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.

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).

One Health’s ‘What,’ ‘So What’ to Animal Agriculture
Focus of NIAA’s 2010 Annual Meeting

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—“One Health” is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans and animals. Opening General Session speakers at the 2010 annual meeting of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, March 15-17, in Kansas City, Mo., will zero in on the “What?” and “So What?” of the One Health concept as these two questions relate to animal agriculture.

“NIAA’s Opening General Session speakers will look at how the One Health initiative and strategies shift the focus from surveillance to intervention and prevention and how challenges need to be faced collectively rather than in individual silos and disciplines,” states Dr. Tony Forshey, co-chair of NIAA’s Annual Meeting Planning Committee. “When individuals leave the Tuesday morning Opening General Session, they will be up to speed about One Health and its implications for animal agriculture.”

 

NIAA’s lineup of Opening General Session topics and speakers include:

·       “One World, One Health: The Global Food Basket,” Dr. Corrie Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine

·       “The Genesis of One Health: What It’s All About,” Dr. Roger Mahr, DVM, CEO, One Health Commission

·       "Past, Present and Future Veterinary Service's Roles in One Health," Dr. Joseph Annelli, One Health Coordinator, USDA/APHIS/Veterinary Services

·       “Environmental Health: How Does One Health Fit In?”, Jay Ellenberger, Deputy  Director, Environmental Protection Agency

·       “How Will One Health Impact Livestock Producers?”, Dr. Harry Snelson, DVM, American Association of Swine Veterinarians

·       “One Health in the Real World,” Dr. Billy Clay, DVM, MS, DABVT, AVMA Council on Public Health and Regulatory Veterinary Medicine, Vetta Consulting LLC

 

At the conclusion of the six Opening General Session presentations, the speakers will partake in a panel discussion and address questions from annual meeting attendees.

 

“We’re excited to have these highly qualified individuals talk about One Health so those of us involved in animal agriculture know as much as possible about this concept that has the attention of major medical organizations and health agencies and the endorsement of more than 400 prominent scientists, physicians and veterinarians worldwide,” Dr. Forshey states. “One Health is underway and gaining momentum. As such, we can either become knowledgeable and involved now or we can react to its impact on animal agriculture.”

 

Dr. Forshey adds that species-specific discussions surrounding One Health will take place during NIAA’s species-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon, March 16, and Wednesday, March 17. Species-based committees include Cattle, Swine, Poultry, Equine, and Sheep & Goat. Each committee meeting will have its own line-up of nationally recognized speakers and species-specific topics.

 

NIAA’s issue-based committee meetings on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday will address Animal Care, Animal Health Emergency Management, Animal Health and International Trade, Animal Production Food Safety and Security, Emerging Diseases, and Animal Identification and Information Systems.  

 

NIAA’s species committee meetings and issue-based committee meetings are open to NIAA members and non-members.

 

NIAA’s annual meeting will take place at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., with a block of rooms reserved at a special nightly rate of $130/room, single or double occupancy. To receive this special rate, rooms must be reserved by Friday, Feb. 12, by calling 816-474-4400 and specifying that you are with the National Institute for Animal Agriculture.

 

A schedule of events for NIAA’s 2010 annual meeting, meeting registration, list of NIAA committees and hotel information are available at the NIAA website: www.animalagriculture.org.   Individuals are also welcome to call NIAA at (719) 538-8843.

Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010 - Friday, February 12, 2010

 Symposium to examine emerging MRSA threat - Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine - March 20, 2010

Columbus, OH - On Saturday, March 20, 2010 experts in infectious diseases and on MRSA in animals will convene a day-long symposium to explore the human and animal health threats posed by this emerging health problem. Health workers are aware that Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can be transferred from person to person; they may be less aware of the risks posed to animals by human transmission, and may not know that animals can transfer the pathogen to humans.

Experts at the symposium will present a description of this pathogen and of other Methicillin-resistant Staphylococci, as well as offer a summary of their epidemiology and their impact on humans and animals. The symposium is targeted to both human health professionals and animal health professionals. This "One Health, One Medicine" approach to studying this pathogens offers a broader understanding of the impact of the diseases in the human health setting as well as veterinary setting.

The two featured keynote speakers are Dr. Scott Weese, recognized internationally for his work on MRSA in animals, and Dr. Paul Morley, an infectious diseases control expert. Dr. Weese will provide a worldwide MRSA update; Dr. Morley will describe handling MRSA cases to decrease the risk of diseases transmission in veterinary settings.

Registration for the symposium is available at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Veterinary Continuing Education. On-line registration requires establishing a log-in name and password. Cost for the full day meeting is $60 ($35 for students). Registration can also be mailed or faxed. A downloadable PDF of a brochure is also available. For more information and links to both methods of registration, please visit the Office of Veterinary Continuing Education web site.

The Mythical Interagency

 "After 17 years in the field as an NGO provider, I [Dr. Lawry] decided I should write a book called "How to Build an Interagency". The first chapter will be "How Not to Build An Interagency". From Rwanda to Haiti, I have seen renditions of interagency growth, bumbles, mis-steps, success and absolute failures. NSPD-44 requires Interagency coordination (not defined as per who is part of this elite organization); but it is not a step-by-step guide on how to ACTUALLY meet that directive. The USG frequently checks the block by have an "Interagency" email list but who actually meets regularly or shares office space? I will challenge us to re-look at Interagency bumbles and see where and how mistakes could have been avoided and where success actually happened despite our best efforts to squelch participation."
