'A Plea for Global Health Action Bottom-Up' – A One Health issue...

A recent article (Please read link https://goo.gl/kMHEcS), 'A Plea for Global Health Action Bottom-Up’, appearing in Frontiers in Public Health (authors: Prof Ulrich Laaser, Dr. Stephen Dorey, Dr. Joann Nurse) may be especially timely and relevant for those engaged in implementing the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals as well as for the task force team  (Dr. George Lueddeke, chair) preparing an education K-12+ “Preparing society to create the world we need through ‘One Health’ education!” http://goo.gl/X4lT3I funding proposal on behalf of the One Health Commission www.onehealthcommission.org/One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono team www.onehealthinitiative.com coalition.

Among other key recommendations, the authors of the article highlight that "top-down political strategy for global health needs to be complemented by a bottom-up strategy to gain momentum." In addition, they underscore the importance of  involving public health professionals in implementing the One Health concept worldwide as they "have a central role ...by advocating the links and well-being of humans as well as other organisms and the wider environment."

For Immediate Release

Specialized Pet Therapy Brings Together Canine Craniofacial Patients and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Craniofacial Patients During “Best Friends Bash” at Penn Vet

Event coincides with National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month

[June 14, 2016; Philadelphia, PA] – During the fourth annual Best Friends Bash on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, craniofacial patients from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) will meet canines who have undergone similar craniofacial procedures at Penn Vet or overcome other health challenges. The event, designed to help children embrace their differences, will coincide with National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month in July.

A video about the Best Friends Bash is available at www.vet.upenn.edu/best-friends-bash-video.

This specialized form of pet therapy helps children see how dogs are affected by similar challenges and how they have adapted. During the event, CHOP patients will have the opportunity to interact with the following dogs:

Emma, a Golden Retriever who had surgery to remove a craniofacial tumor

Marilyn Monroe, a Dachshund who underwent a full mouth dental extraction

Jasmine, a Shetland Sheepdog who had surgery to remove a craniofacial tumor

Bosco, a Rottweiler with a skull deformity who also had four leg operations

Cyrus, a mixed breed dog who was born without front legs

Tarot, a Rhodesian Ridgeback born with a birthmark on his face and a scar on his head who also has had extensive dental work for a severe overbite

“It is incredibly powerful to watch these remarkable, resilient kids interact with these amazing dogs,” said Dr. Alexander Reiter, Penn Vet Associate Professor of Dentistry & Oral Surgery. “The dogs provide unspoken comfort, creating an immediate bond that allows the children to realize they are not alone.”

“Craniofacial problems are complex medical conditions that can also negatively impact children's feelings about themselves,” said Scott P. Bartlett, MD, chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at CHOP. “Despite this, our patients show great resilience and strength. They strive to return normalcy to their lives — often while coping with major surgeries and other therapies throughout their childhood and adolescence. Events like this are a great opportunity for these children to see how dogs affected by similar problems have adapted.”

During the event, clinicians and nurses from CHOP’s Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and members of Penn Vet’s Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service will discuss cases and learn from each other’s techniques.

The Best Friends Bash will take place on June 28 at 5:30 p.m. in Penn Vet’s Hill Pavilion (380 S. University Ave., Philadelphia). The event is not open to the public.

The event is funded by a grant from Penn’s Edwin and Fannie Gray Hall Center for Human Appearance (CHA), which consists of plastic surgeons, dermatologists, oral & maxillofacial surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, and psychologists who have an interest in solving the problems of appearance caused by congenital defects, cancer, trauma, and disease. CHA funds many research and education projects that study and treat all aspects of appearance in children and adults.

http://www.swinecast.com/panel-qa-building-a-coalition-one-health-approach-preserving-antibiotic-effectiveness

 

                          **********************

Editor’s Viewpoint: These brilliant, articulate presentations [totaling 58.30 minutes] represent a unique, brief oral and visual ‘One Health Approach’ implementation roadmap for helping to significantly curb one of the most serious [of many] Global Health issues challenging society in the early 21st century, where the One Health concept is critically needed and applicable.

One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment.  This is a long overdue essential nonpartisan humanitarian practicable paradigm shift for political & governmental leaders to become actively and ‘ecumenically’ engaged in for Global Health advancement. it has frequently proven to be a most expeditious and efficacious broad spectrum model, e.g. see https://goo.gl/ibdQQ6 and https://goo.gl/wjG3Xx [note: Dr. Tom Monath, a physician founding member of the One Health Initiative team & website, is currently Chief Scientific & Chief Operating Officer BioProtection Systems/NewLink Genetics Corp., Devens, MA (USA)],  

Among others such as founding member of the OHI team & website, physician Dr. Laura H. Kahn’s recently published landmark AMR book https://jhupbooks.press.jhu.edu/content/one-health-and-politics-antimicrobial-resistance, these concrete recommendations expressed at the 2016 NIAA Antibiotic Symposium would certainly help further the maxim that One Health implementation will help protect and/or save untold millions of lives in our generation and for those to come.
