WONCA News – November 2017
The latest WONCA News (November 2017) is still accessible via the WONCA website, with lots of WONCA news, views and events. As ever, many articles also appear in Spanish and French. December’s WONCA News will appear over the weekend of 15/16 December.
WONCA Working Party on the Environment: Planetary Health in South America
In August’s WONCA News we included a report from Ralph Guggenheim about using WONCA conferences to promote the issue of planetary health, and he reported on his experiences at WONCA Europe in Prague. Now Paola Rava Dellepiane, WONCA Working Party on the Environment member, writes more on this issue, and describes her experiences at the WONCA Iberoamericana-CIMF Conference, in Lima, Perú, from 17th to 20th August, 2017. The article also refers to WONCA’s Policy Statement on Planetary Health, which was endorsed by WONCA Executive at its April 2017 meeting.
WONCA and One Health
Remaining on an environmental theme, a reminder that WONCA is a partner with the One Health Initiative. 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. We’re proud to be one of a long and prestigious list of supporters, and encourage anyone with an interest in health and the environment to access their website for further information.
“Between animal and human medicine there are no dividing lines--nor should there be. The object is different but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine.”
