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:

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.

Federation of European Microbiogical Societies (FEMS) Endorses One Health - Thursday, December 10, 2015

Federation of European Microbiogical Societies (FEMS) Endorses One Health

 

“The Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) strongly supports the One Health Initiative (OHI) and the call for increased collaboration between the human and veterinary medical communities. Many of our members look forward to seeing more interactions and partnerships between physicians, veterinarians and scientific researchers.  Such collaboration could help find responses to serious societal challenges, such as emerging infectious diseases, pandemics and the transmission of Antimicrobial Resistance. Also, it is crucial for our health and the health of the planet to build a better understanding around the role and fate of microbes and viruses in the biotic and abiotic environment. OHI can show the way to a healthy future!”
