Abstract

“One Health is an emerging concept that stresses the linkages between human, animal, and environmental health, as well as the need for interdisciplinary communication and collaboration to address health issues including emerging zoonotic diseases, climate change impacts, and the human-animal bond. It promotes complex problem solving using a systems framework that considers interactions between humans, animals, and their shared environment. While many medical educators may not yet be familiar with the concept, the One Health approach has been endorsed by a number of major medical and public health organizations and is beginning to be implemented in a number of medical schools. In the research setting, One Health opens up new avenues to understand, detect, and prevent emerging infectious diseases, and also to conduct translational studies across species. In the clinical setting, One Health provides practical ways to incorporate environmental and animal contact considerations into patient care. This paper reviews clinical and research aspects of the One Health approach through an illustrative case updating the biopsychosocial model and proposes a basic set of One Health competencies for training and education of human health care providers.”

    Biography of the Editor-in-Chief

    SuniJuergen A. Richt received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and PhD in Virology and Immunology from the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (1988), both in Germany. Afterwards, he completed three years of postdoctoral/residency studies at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, USA. Next, Dr. Richt returned for eight years to the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen as a junior faculty to establish his own research program. He later served for eight years as a Veterinary Medical Officer at the National Animal Disease Center (USDA-ARS) in Ames, Iowa.

    Dr. Richt came to Kansas State University in 2008 as The Regents Distinguished Professor and Kansas Bioscience Eminent Scholar. In 2010, he became Director of the Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases (CEEZAD), which is working with Principal Investigators in 16 different universities, as well as various industrial partners. His work in veterinary microbiology has focused mainly on the animal-human interface, called “One Health” that links human medicine, veterinary medicine and the environment. Dr. Richt has edited several books, published more than 190 peer-reviewed articles and raised more than $33 million in grants for veterinary research.

One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team joins One Health Commission Council of Advisors - Monday, February 20, 2017

One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team joins One Health Commission Council of Advisors

Council Of Advisors [One Health Commission www.onehealthcommission.org]

“The Commission’s founders saw a need to involve many minds in leading its One Health work and thus created a non-voting Council of Advisors (COA). These One Health leaders are called on from time to time to share expertise and guidance to the Commission. Participants may be invited by the Board, nominated by ‘Leader’ Corporate sponsors or by choosing to get involved and support the Commission as Individuals sponsors at the ‘Leader’ level. The Commission ‘Thanks’ COA participants for sharing their thoughts and insights for advancing the One Health paradigm shift.”

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Monash Bioethics Review on ‘One Health Ethics’ - Sunday, February 12, 2017

Call for Papers

Special Issue of Monash Bioethics Review on ‘One Health Ethics’

Guest Co-Edited by *Zohar Lederman (Centre for Biomedical Ethics, National University of Singapore) and Chris Degeling (Centre for Values, Ethics & Law in Medicine (VELIM); University of Sydney)

Rationale and Description:

One Health (OH) and related approaches such as EcoHealth and Planetary Health are arguably novel in recognizing the inter-relatedness of humans, non-human animals, and the environment. They explore, document, and articulate the effects of climate change and other grand-scale environmental conditions on human, animal and environmental health. Above all, these approaches stress that human health can no longer be considered in isolation from animal and environmental health. Rather, from a scientific perspective, these are inextricably linked and interdependent. Even as OH approaches are increasingly accepted at global, national and local levels of health research and practice, the ethics is lagging behind the science. OH explicitly aims to attain optimal health for humans, animals, and the environment, but few have considered the potential normative implications of such an aim. Only in the past three years have philosophers, scientists and bioethicists begun to examine ethical issues relating to this expanding science. They face the challenge of applying existing environmental ethical theories to multi-species public health problems and novel approaches to biomedical research and practice, in an era where the field of bioethics mainly shies away from such abstract theories.

As part of this interdisciplinary effort, we welcome submissions for a Special Issue of Monash Bioethics Review exploring the ethics of One Health. Submissions should be 3,000-6,000 words in length, excluding references and footnotes. We invite theoretical discussions, practical implications, and empirical ethics studies that cast a wide net in an attempt to capture what the ethics of One Health may entail and signify. Submissions preferably would be interdisciplinary and/or with interdisciplinary applications.

Suggested topics include:

  • The normative tensions and concordances between OH, EcoHealth and Planetary Health
  • Normative analyses of empirical examples of OH practices
  • OH in policy and law
  • The politics and ethics of an OH approach to communicable disease risks and outbreaks
  • OH and the co-incidence of non-communicable diseases (such as type II diabetes) in human and animal populations   
  • OH, biopolitics and multispecies governance
  • Feminism, Ecofeminism and OH
  • OH and food or environmental justice
  • OH and the Anthropocene
  • OH, animal welfare and animal protection

Interested authors are welcome to send abstracts to the Guest Co-Editors in order to assess potential relevance to the Special Issue.

Submission deadline:  30 June 2017

Please submit your manuscript via the Monash Bioethics Review website here:

http://www.springer.com/philosophy/ethics+and+moral+philosophy/journal/40592

Please indicate (on the online submission form) that your submission is for Special Issue on ‘One Health Ethics’.
