June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH - Saturday, July 07, 2018

June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH

 SEE: https://goo.gl/kaai5a

3rd paragraph,

“The report also highlights the need for continued and robust funding for AMR given that nationwide testing last year documented 221 cases of so-called “nightmare bacteria,” that can spread resistance to last-resort antibiotics. Robust, sustained investment in multi-agency One Health efforts is vital to combat AMR domestically and globally including prevention, antimicrobial stewardship, surveillance and data collection, research, and development of urgently needed new products including antimicrobial drugs, diagnostics, vaccines and alternative treatments.”

 

11th paragraph,

“Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture Experts agree that a One Health approach, including both human and animal health, is essential for combating antimicrobial resistance. We urge funding of $54 million for the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria initiative at FDA to support FDA’s efforts to address public health concerns associated with antimicrobial drug use in animals, and better protect antibiotic effectiveness for both human and animal populations. This funding is needed now more than ever, with estimates that antibiotic use in humans and livestock will rise by 50% before 2030. FDA would be able to better collaborate with consumers, producers, veterinarians, and other agencies to monitor AMR through the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) as well as other initiatives by the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine to address AMR.”

One health: Joint health research

BfR, FLI and RKI support the European program for the reduction of infectious diseases in humans and animals

BfR Federal Institute for Risk Assessment

 Print  E-Mail

"Antimicrobial resistance and threats through new pathogens are controversial examples of the extent to which the health and illness of humans, animals and the environment are linked together," says Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Hensel, President of the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). "A joint European research programme under the auspices of One Health can help to counter microbial risks effectively." The German partners of the European Joint Programme on One Health are the BfR, the Friedrich Loeffler Institute and the Robert Koch Institute.

https://www.anses.fr/en/content/anses-will-coordinate-european-joint-programme-one-health-european-research-programme-0

The goal of the European Joint Programme (EJP) is to build up a European platform for One Health which satisfies the needs of European and national political decision makers and interest groups (stakeholders). To this end, European institutions from the fields of medicine, veterinary medicine and consumer health protection in the food sector are to expand their cooperation in order to achieve progress in the containment of foodborne zoonoses (infections transferred between humans and animals), antimicrobial resistance and new infection hazards (emerging threats).

The One Health concept takes into account the close link between human health, animal health and the environment. Accordingly, the close connection between the safety of feeds and foods and human and animal health and environmental contamination is observed. The examination of infectious pathogens which can be transferred from animals to humans is an important focal point of this EJP, a new research programme within the EU framework programme for research and innovation "Horizon 2020" sponsored by the European Commission. The One Health EJP (Grant Agreement 773830) is headed by the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES).

The cooperation between the 40 partners is to be strengthened by the programme. Each partner also has reference tasks, which means that they set the yardstick for examinations. They already form an organised network and represent a research community in the thematic areas of foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and emerging threats. Over a total period of five years, a sum of € 90 million is to be spent on activities within this network. 50% of the costs are being provided by the European Commission with the other half being carried by each respective member state.

The One Health EJP will generate scientific data, methods and software programs which can be used by national and European institutions to assess health risks and possible preventive measures. An exchange with other large-scale projects sponsored by the European Commission will be guaranteed at the same time. One of the tasks will be the efficient and regular transfer of knowledge between the research community and national authorities, as well as international and European stakeholders.

BfR sub-projects

A further goal of the One Health EJP is the expansion of collaboration between the institutes through interdisciplinary cooperation. This is to be realised through joint research projects and integrative schemes, as well as basic and further training measures. The BfR is involved in five research projects and two integrative schemes and is heading the "Science to Policy Translation" work package, in which measures for the best possible transfer of results from the research projects and integrative schemes to the stakeholders involved in the areas of foodborne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and emerging threats are to be developed.

The BfR is also coordinating the integrative project "ORION" (One health surRveillance Initiative on harmOnisation of data collection and interpretation). The main focus of this project is the exchange of data and information generated during the monitoring, collection and interpretation of data on health and wellbeing. Cooperation among the institutions is also being further improved through the cooperation of 13 institutes from seven countries active in the fields of public health and veterinary medicine.

###

About the BfR

The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) is a scientifically independent institution within the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) in Germany. It advises the Federal Government and Federal Laender on questions of food, chemical and product safety. The BfR conducts its own research on topics that are closely linked to its assessment tasks.

Ten Years of Important documented One Health highlights...still valid today: ONLY Tip-of-the-Iceberg! - Tuesday, January 09, 2018

Why One Health? 

Ten years of Important documented One Health highlights...still valid today: ONLY Tip-of-the-Iceberg!

Editor’s note: By definition, “In a jury trial, a directed verdict is an order from the presiding judge to the jury to return a particular verdict. Typically, the judge orders a directed verdict after finding that no reasonable jury could reach a decision to the contrary.” 

The following, in addition to other documented examples https://goo.gl/F7AbK2 [and many others in numerous publications], including endorsements of One Health/One Health Approach by a large cadre of reputable national and international individuals, organizations and institutions http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/supporters.php & https://goo.gl/yJSXyZ, would likely lead most, if not all, presiding judges to issue a directed verdict in favor of One Health/One Health Approach implementation forthwith!

One health researchers identify hot spots of tick-borne diseases in Mongolia

George Mason University (USA)

Given the critical role livestock play in Mongolia, transmission of tick-borne diseases can have very real health and economic implications for livestock and the herders that tend to them. Dr. Michael von Fricken explored this association using a multidisciplinary One Health research approach, which focused on the interaction between nomadic herders, the livestock they own, and the tick-borne diseases they are exposed to. von Fricken spent a year living in Ulaanbataar as a postdoc with Duke University, under Dr. Greg Gray, working alongside veterinarians from the Institute of Veterinary Medicine and the National Center for Zoonotic Diseases.

Addressing Societal Needs by Combating Antimicrobial Resistance

By Michael Lairmore On July 11, 2017

 “Infectious disease exists at this intersection between real science, medicine, public health, social policy, and human conflict.” – Andrea Barrett

As part of our school’s vision, we seek to address societal needs. In challenging ourselves to this daunting task of working to solve the most vexing problems our world faces, we find our people and programs drawn toward the interface of science, public health, and policy. In opening remarks at the recent G20 Conference, Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, praised Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel for recognizing that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major threat to the health of the world’s populations and the future of economies of the many countries.

He indicated that as many as 700,000 people worldwide are already dying each year because of drug-resistant infections and that the cumulative economic cost of AMR will reach 100 trillion dollars by 2050, a cost primarily borne by low and middle income countries. The Secretary-General went on to suggest that “by implementing existing international commitments and recommendations of the World Health Organization, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and World Organization for Animal Health, countries can promote a more appropriate use of antimicrobials in a true ‘One Health’ framework.”

Antimicrobial resistance is an example of a major societal issue that our school has been making significant efforts to understand and combat. These efforts include forming partnerships with state and national organizations to inform stakeholders on a new Food and Drug Administration Guidance on the use of antimicrobials, to working with the California Veterinary Medical Association and the California Department of Food and Agriculture to develop evidence-based science policies in California to ensure the proper use of antimicrobials to advance animal health, while not overusing important human drugs for growth promotion as feed additives.

Dr. Terry Lehenbauer, director of the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching and Research Center in Tulare, participated in a recent American Public and Land-grant University/American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges Working Group to develop antimicrobial resistance curriculum learning outcomes, which were featured at a U.S. Capitol Hill Briefing. We have successfully competed for a new cooperative extension specialist faculty position focused on antimicrobial resistance research and outreach. This new faculty member will join a comprehensive group of faculty members who are studying AMR from multiple vantage points to address this important health threat.

The California Animal Health & Food Safety Laboratory (CAHFS) in Tulare, a diagnostic laboratory devoted to protecting farm animals, the food supply and the public against new and emerging diseases. The Tulare facility is one of four labs in the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory System, headquartered at UC Davis and operated for the state by the veterinary school to protect animal health and performance, and safeguard public health and the food supply.

Our California Animal Health and Food Safety laboratory diagnosticians and scientist are actively seeking ways to monitor drug-resistant bacteria in our food supply. Our scientists are using the latest technologies to genetically analyze food-borne pathogens, especially those that may be resistant to commonly used antibiotics. Our school has partnered with the Farm Foundation to bring together the state’s livestock and poultry producers, their feed suppliers and veterinarians to discuss the changing landscape of antibiotic drug use in food animals. Knowledge related to the proper use of antibiotics is then offered to our stakeholders throughout the State of California via our cooperative extension faculty through conferences, proceedings, and other public outreach efforts.

Collectively, our people and programs are on the front lines of counteracting AMR, exemplifying our vision to address this pressing societal need. In doing so, we are in lock-step with other G20 countries committed to promoting the appropriate use of antimicrobials through a One Health approach.

INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION ON AGEING (IFA) Recognizes Health Value of “Human-animal bond”, a One Health Umbrella* Inclusion - Saturday, July 30, 2016

INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION ON AGEING (IFA) Recognizes Health Value of “Human-animal bond”, a One Health Umbrella* Inclusion  

Companion Animals and the Health of Older Persons: International Day of Friendship

July 30th is the International Day of Friendship, which was first proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly. The goal of the International Day of Friendship is to build bridges between communities by encouraging friendship and peace efforts between people, cultures, countries and individuals.

The relationship between people and companion animals has a long standing history, and has been documented throughout different cultures around the world. The “human-animal bond” is a mutually beneficial, dynamic relationship between people and animals, that has proven benefits for emotional, social, physical and psychological health. The concept of “One Health” is important to consider when discussing this relationship, and is defined by the One Health Initiative as:

“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.” – One Health Initiative

As part of the Companion Animals & the Health of Older Persons Infographic Series, the IFA and Bayer Animal Health, along with several other partner organizations including One Health Initiative, American Association of Human-Animal Bond Veterinarians (AAH-ABV), Animal & Societies Institute, Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations (FECAVA) and The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) created this infographic to generate awareness about the importance of the human-animal bond. ...MORE BELOW:
