“ABSTRACT: A One Health approach requires that nontraditional partners with differing mandates collaborate and communicate effectively. Barriers to such redefined relationships range from personality and institutional cultural and value differences to impediments that require changes in agency-specific policies. This article reviews interagency One Health collaborations, nationally and internationally. It presents a series of case studies that describe situations in which barriers were overcome, thus culminating in successful One Health outcomes. The case studies illustrate challenges, tipping points, and externally enabling factors that help institutionalize cross-bureaucratic working relationships. Likewise, the cases demonstrate the added value of taking a One Health approach to solving (or preventing) public health problems.”

One Health – A holistic Paradigm

“The deliberations and discussions of the GRF One Health Summit Davos 2012 on “One Health, One Planet, One Future: Risks and opportunities” have shown that One Health has evolved to a broad and holistic paradigm that addresses and frames the complex interactions between human health, livestock, pet and wildlife health, climate, ecosystems, agriculture, food systems and human development. It includes aspects of nutrition, agriculture, the safety and security of food supplies, environmental stewardship and the management of natural resources, water, energy, and ecosystems services, as well as questions of awareness, behaviour and learning, governance, economics, and disaster preparedness. Keeping in mind that more than half of the worldwide population is living in urban areas and rural exodus continues to grow; One Health may become a crucial approach to successfully cope with all the drivers and consequences in urbanization dynamics.

Recently, One Health has begun to move beyond the status of a mere concept to become a truly global movement at the interface of science, society, policy and practice. It is deeply interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial and provides a fascinating, powerful framework that a variety of professional communities and social groups can adhere to.

Our best hope is that the One Health paradigm will be helpful in reversing the worst of current problems at the human-animal-environment and development interface thus fostering a more sustainable way of life on Mother Earth.”

Walter J. Ammann, PhD, Chairman and CEO

Note:  Dr. Ammann is a prominent engineer by training representing the true spirit of One Health’s interdisciplinary collaborative approach.  He and his outstanding staff http://www.grforum.org/about-us/team/?L=  have assembled an international Scientific and Technical Advisory Group http://onehealth.grforum.org/about/scientific-and-technical-advisory-group/ to assist with the One Health summit preparations.

Introduction: Rift Valley fever (RVF) is an emerging viral zoonosis that impacts human and animal health. It is transmitted from animals to humans directly through exposure to blood, body fluids, or tissues of infected animals or via mosquito bites. The disease is endemic to Africa but has recently spread to Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Our aim was to compare two major outbreaks of RVF in Saudi Arabia (2000) and Sudan (2007) from a One Health perspective.”

 

Conclusion: We conclude that a One Health approach is the best option to mitigate outbreaks of RVF. Collaboration between veterinary, health, and environmental authorities both on national and regional levels is needed.”

"Between animal and human medicine there is no dividing line – nor should there be. The object is different but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine."
- Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902)

One Health—the concept describing the complex interrelationship involving ecosystem health and the health and well being of wildlife, domestic animals, and humans is the focus of the research and extension work of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The CVM and its centers, institutes, programs, and individual faculty members and students contribute to the health of the environment, animals, and people on the local, regional, national, and international level.

One of several real life One Health examples: Better Understanding of human and animal “Cancers” through collaborative comparative medicine/translational research:

 

http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu/ccmtr/researchcores.html#oncology

Mission Statement

The mission of the CCMTR is to promote scientific discovery and facilitate its clinical application to achieve the goal of improving the health of animals and humans. Translational research is patient-centric. The needs of the patients direct the emphasis of basic research, patient samples provide the critical resource to investigate the basis of disease, and patient participation in clinical studies is required to generate the evidence needed to apply new drugs, vaccines and technology to the broader patient population. Initiatives at the Center are designed to develop the multidisciplinary teams necessary to bring an idea from the lab to the patient. The Center is home to service cores that provide advanced technology, collect and store clinical patient samples, and perform clinical trials to validate new medical interventions. For more information contact the Center Director, Dr. Jorge Piedrahita: http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu/mbs/personnel/piedrahita_jorge.html.

Oncology (Study of Cancer)

The core concentrates on improving the understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of cancer through collaborative research on induced and spontaneous models of cancer. Areas of focus include cancer genomics, cytogenetics, manipulation of tumor physiology, signaling and cell cycle control/differentiation, clinical diagnosis and treatment. For more information contact the core leader, Dr. Steve Suter  http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu/docs/personnel/suter_steven.html.

Specific areas of research include:

1.      Cancer genomics/molecular cytogenetics of a variety of cancers of comparative significance (including linkage and mapping analysis, correlation with disease occurrence and outcome).

2.      Cell signaling/cell cycle control/differentiation.

3.      Tumor physiology (effects of intervention on physiologic parameters in tumors).

4.      Development and testing of novel therapeutics and validation of surrogate markers.

5.      Clinical diagnosis and treatment.

As part of the "In Search of Answers" video series featuring Center researchers, Jonathan M. Horowitz, PhD http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu/mbs/personnel/horowitz_jonathan.html.  Dr. Horowitz provides enlightening discussions regarding oncology research and related areas:

One Health Newsletter 2014 Winter Issue Published Today Under New Management

                               Volume 7, Issue 1

 

Please see attachment or visit http://epi.ufl.edu/onehealth/news/one-health-newsletter/

 

Transition Announcement:

 

The Florida Department of Health—USA (FL DOH) has enjoyed six highly successful years of managing the internationally distributed and widely read One Health Newsletter (OHNL).

 

The early pioneering Editors, first Mary Echols, DVM, MPH, and then Elizabeth Radke, PhD, in addition to a highly motivated and unselfish editorial board, brilliantly laid the groundwork for this very popular—first and currently the only one of its kind—One Health publication. Several prominent One Health contributors (physicians, veterinarians and other One Health scientists) over the years are testimony to widespread acceptance and appreciation for this unique

endeavor; most have graciously agreed to continue to participate. The One Health Newsletter has truly represented a significant educational milestone in the recent history of the One Health movement during the early 21st century.

 

Beginning with this issue, the Florida Department of Health’s OHNL Editorial Staff has decided to transfer the management of the OHNL to the University of Florida’s (UF) One Health Center of Excellence. Though this means changes in the coordinating staff of the newsletter, the mission will remain the same, and the OHNL will endeavor to continue delivering high-quality One Health-focused articles each issue, to be shared via the One Health Initiative’s website http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/newsletter.php.

 

The co-equal, all inclusive policy of the FL DOH’s newsletter shall continue in the collaborative spirit of “One Health” under the new co-editors, Mary M. Merrill, MHS and Sarah K. White, MPH. Indeed, reputable One Health author(s) from

any and all One Health oriented university and/or scientific institutions, organizations, governmental agencies and others from the United States and worldwide are welcome and urged to freely participate by submitting One Health

related articles.

 

The One Health Initiative (OHI) 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, has worked in tandem with the FL DOH during the early establishment years of its management of the OHNL to date. It intends to continue working closely with the UF OHNL editorial staff.

 

The OHI team strongly supports the transition and transference of the OHNL to the University of Florida’s “One Health Center of Excellence.” Notably, the Director of the One Health Center of Excellence, Gregory C. Gray, MD, MPH,FIDSA, has been an outstanding and recognized One Health supporter/advocate http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/supporters.php for several years. Dr. Gray is also a distinguished member of the OHI team’s Honorary Advisory Board

http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php.

 

The incoming Editorial Staff are very thankful for the guidance and support given to us by the departing Editorial Staff as well as by the OHNL Editorial Board during this time of transition. The OHNL would not be possible without the countless hours of volunteer effort devoted by supporters of the One Health vision and mission. While compiling this Winter issue, we have had the opportunity to view firsthand the dedication, drive, and sincere passion that members of the One Health community have for improving health outcomes in all capacities around the world. This experience has already been humbling and inspiring, and we look forward—with your help—to publishing many quarterly online issues in future.

 

Mary M. Merrill, MHS, Co-Editor (mleighmorris@epi.ufl.edu) and Sarah K. White, MPH, Co-Editor (sek0005@epi.ufl.edu), One Health Newsletter in collaboration with Bruce Kaplan, DVM, Contributing Editor, One Health Newsletter and Manager/Editor One Health Initiative website You may learn more about the UF’s One Health Center of Excellence by visiting http://epi.ufl.edu/onehealth/.

 

The One Health Center of Excellence will be posting new issues of the OHNL as well as archives of previous issues at http://epi.ufl.edu/onehealth/news/one-health-newsletter/ in coordination with the OHI team/website—as done in past years.
