Important One Health Book Reminder!

 

Check out the groundbreaking ‘first of its kind’ One Health book entitled Human-Animal Medicine – Clinical Approaches to Zoonoses, Toxicants and other Shared Health Risks http://www.us.elsevierhealth.com/product.jsp?isbn=9781416068372.

“Human-Animal Medicine is an innovative reference exploring the unprecedented convergence of human, animal, and environmental health, triggering global pandemics and requiring new clinical paradigms. The "One Health" approach calls for greater communication and cooperation between human health care providers, public health professionals, and veterinarians to better address vital issues of emerging diseases and environmental change. This incredibly timely book provides, for the first time, practical guidelines for "One Health" collaborations in a wide range of clinical human-animal health issues, including the H1N1 virus, zoonotic diseases, the human-animal bond, animal allergy, bites and stings, and animals as "sentinels" for toxic environmental health hazards.”

Peter M. Rabinowitz, MD, MPH, prominent American public health physician at Yale Medical School and Lisa A. Conti, DVM, MPH a noted American public health veterinarian edited and wrote this unique One Health book December 18, 2009. Dr. Rabinowitz serves on the One Health Initiative (OHI) Autonomous pro bono team’s Honorary Advisory Board http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php and Dr. Conti is a member of the OHI team and is currently Deputy Commissioner and Chief Science Officer at Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Adjunct Professor at Florida State University and Affiliate at Yale University School of Medicine (USA).

One Health Initiative Advances Care for Humans, Animals and the Environment

By One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team: Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP ▪ Bruce Kaplan, DVM ▪ Thomas P. Monath, MD ▪ Jack Woodall, PhD ▪ Lisa A. Conti, DVM, MPH

 

The One Health concept is generally defined as http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/about.php: “a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. The synergism achieved will advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care. When properly implemented, it will help protect and save untold millions of lives in our present and future generations.”  “One Health” has been the most commonly used term for the concept in the early 21st century.  This evolved from the term “One Medicine” used during the latter half of the 20th century, first coined and promoted by veterinarian Calvin Schwabe, DVM, MPH, ScD http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/onehealth/local-assets/pdfs/schwabe_coins_onemedicine#schwabe_coins_onemedicine. 

 

The One Health Initiative team was founded originally by physician Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP, veterinarian Bruce Kaplan, DVM, and physician Thomas P. Monath, MD in 2007 for the purpose of promoting the One Health concept.  The team was expanded to include health research scientist Jack Woodall, PhD in 2009 and veterinarian Lisa A. Conti, DVM, MPH in 2012.  Drs. Kahn, Kaplan and Monath initiated the One Health Initiative website www.onehealthinitiative.com in October 2008 http://fridayletter.asph.org/article_view.cfm?FLE_Index=8121&FL_Index=1537 and http://wws.princeton.edu/coverstories/onehealth_10-08/. ...”

Selendy, Chairman, President, and Publisher of Horizon International, Yale University, Department of Biology, Box 208103, New Haven, CT 06520-8103 (USA) sent the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team an important and welcomed One Health endorsement message.

 

 

 On behalf of Horizon International I am writing to express our enthusiastic support for the valuable One Health Initiative (OHI) and Horizon’s willingness to do what it can to help advance the OHI objective to bring about the synergy achievable with interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. 

 

 

 As is so well expressed on the OHI Web site, such synergy will “advance health care for the 21st century and beyond by accelerating biomedical research discoveries, enhancing public health efficacy, expeditiously expanding the scientific knowledge base, and improving medical education and clinical care.”

 

 

 Dr. Lora E Fleming, Professor and Director, European Centre for Environment and Human Health, University of Exeter Medical School, who introduced me to Drs. Lisa Conti and Peter Rabinowitz of the One Health Initiative, is personally aware of Horizon International’s shared commitment to the goals of OHI, of sharing interconnected knowledge. She is co-author of the chapter, “Naturally Occurring Water Pollutants,” in Horizon International’s own book, Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Environment: Challenges, Interventions, and Preventive Measures. Several other contributors to the OHI and to the valuable One Health book for clinicians and public health professionals, Human-Animal Medicine, are also among our book’s authors including Drs. Lorraine Backer and Michelle Barry.

 

 

 Horizon International will be honored to be added to the list of more than 700 prominent scientists, physicians and veterinarians worldwide who have endorsed the initiative and to be part of the One Health Initiative “movement to forge co-equal, all inclusive collaborations between physicians, osteopaths, veterinarians, dentists, nurses and other scientific-health and environmentally related disciplines.” ...”
