General presentation

General presentation of the conference

Organising this One Health Inter-Regional European Conference comes as a natural consequence of the momentum that the One Health concept has gathered for the last couple of years. Romania is truly honoured to be part of the One Health movement and firmly believes that due to its half of century experience in comparative medicine and not only, will have a positive impact on the One Health trajectory.

We invite all professions linked to One Health to attend this Conference, because One Health is best defined with the phrase “It’s all connected!”

The conference will be organised under the auspices of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) by close collaboration of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences and the One Health New Medical Concept Association in Romania.

Global Population Health and Well-Being in the 21st Century: Toward New Paradigms, Policy and Practice (Springer Publishing, New York, 2016)

Author: George R Lueddeke PhD [http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/221215%20GL%20Short%20Bio.pdf]

A must read for public health, clinical, and social care students, teachers, and practitioners alike, including case studies to provide a thorough and up-to-date account of the past, present, and future of global public health. Dr Lueddeke effectively highlights the ingenuity gap between today’s wicked problems and their potential solutions, with a timely emphasis on the concepts of ‘planetary health’ and ‘integrative ecological public health’. Following on from the four “waves” of public health interventions in developed nations, including water/sanitation (first), medical and scientific breakthroughs (second), the welfare state and social security (third), and the current focus on systems thinking, risk factors, and lifestyle (fourth), there is now an emerging need for the “Fifth Wave” interventions that require complex adaptive systems thinking. Dr Lueddeke presents a manifesto for collective public health action through the ‘One Health’ movement, recognising the inter-dependencies in the health of people, other animals and the environment we live in. One of the main aims of the book is to support the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs).

This book describes part of the solution being the development of an effective public health workforce through innovations in education and training, offering a proposal for Centers of One Health Excellence (COHE) worldwide.

Our mission at Oxford Public Health is aligned closely with many of the compelling concepts in this very informative and groundbreaking read.

Dear colleagues,

 

We have been approached by our friends in the International Association of Risk Management in Medicine (IARMM), to consider adding our support to the OneHealth Initiative, excluding any financial supports.

I am pleased to say that the IARMM Executive has happily endorsed this recommendation, and I am now writing to confirm the support of IARMM for your cause.

While by the end of the 20th century, new topics such as clinic gene technology had been added to medicine’s paramount concern with health, it should not be forgotten that health and safety remain integral to human being. In the 21st century, risk and crisis management are widely recognized as one of fundamental aspects of human existence. IARMM assists the world wide exchange of knowledge and skill in this specialist area, and we are pleased to lend support to the work of your enterprise.

With our best regards.

 

Dr Ryoji Sakai

IARMM President

Landmark Global Health/One Health Book Author Speaks out Again... - Monday, January 04, 2016

Landmark Global Health/One Health Book Author Speaks out Again...

On January 4, 2016, George R. Lueddeke, PhD - Consultant Education Advisor in Higher & Medical Education, http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/221215%20GL%20Short%20Bio.pdf and author of “Global Population Health and Well-Being in the 21st Century: Toward New Paradigms, Policy, and Practice” (copyright 2016) wrote to the One Health Initiative team/website:

“The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has certainly raised awareness about global priorities from 2016 - 2030 and beyond. But these need to be continually reinforced at all global and national societal levels. The U.S. President's Proclamation in April 2015 https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/04/06/presidential-proclamation-national-public-health-week-2015 for the American Public Health Association (APHA) is noteworthy especially its emphasis on leaving "our children a safer, healthier, more prosperous world," recognising that "America's public health is deeply tied to the health of our environment," and its aim to shift "the focus of our country's health care system from sickness and disease to wellness and prevention." All of these are of course inherent in the One Health mission or philosophy.

One of my hopes for the book is that it will be perceived at least as one of the useful catalysts for stimulating discussion in  various public learning environments - formal and informal- and thereby helping to achieve some of the goals outlined by policy-makers etc...”

Dr. Lueddeke previously said [December 23, 2015], “—“While writing the book and now, ‘One World, One Health’ is the only plausible way forward for our planet and people...”.

AUTHOR: Dr. Luededdke http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/ATT00007.pdf.  I like the slide very much as it also shows how Public / Population Health is a key player in bridging One Health strands and the need to recognise its potential and pivotal functions in doing so”, Luededdke said.
