The Brown Journal of World Affairs

Another important documented economic validation for utilizing the One Health approach for sustainable Global Public Health…

“...given the zoonotic nature of most emerging infectious disease threats,

a “One Health” approach that builds cooperation and coordination between

animal and human public health systems is essential. Robust veterinary systems

that meet OIE standards are needed to provide early warning, curb antibiotic

and other drug resistance in microbes, and control emerging animal diseases in

a cost-effective manner before they threaten humans. ...”

International Cooperative Responses to Pandemic Threats: A Critical Analysis

Milan Brahmbhatt and Olga Jonas

"In this paper, we argue that the world appears to be seriously underinvesting in international cooperation for the prevention and control of pandemics—for reasons that range from outdated models of the pandemic threat to challenges in the provision of global public goods, in tackling catastrophic risks, and in the political economy of public choice. Nevertheless, these challenges can be met. The economic returns on investments to prevent and better control pandemics are extremely large. The last 15 years provide valuable lessons from both suc- cesses and setbacks, suggesting four principles for a plan of action to revitalize international cooperative responses to pandemic threats. "

General presentation

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.

Abstract: The objective of this report is to provide information on Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex infections in animals and in humans. Included is information on the susceptibility of different species as well as information on etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention and control of this disease. The term One Health has been adopted to describe the unified human medical and veterinary interdisciplinary/mul­tidisciplinary collaborative approach to zoonoses and will be critical for future endeavors in the control of the global TB epidemic. This unified paradigm is ideally suited for control of bovine TB and many other international public health and clinical health issues. Sharing resources and increasing interaction between public health and veterinary medical scientists can raise awareness of ‘shared risk’ of bovine TB between humans and animals and, in resource-limited situations, can maximize use of existing infrastructure and reduce unnecessary duplication of effort in disease control programs.

Preparing society to create the world we need through ‘One Health’ education!

Two leading international One Health groups, the One Health Commission and the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team are partnering to help create and promote a comprehensive global education revolution that supports curriculum innovation on the unifying interconnected health of humans, animals, and the environment that sustains all life on earth.  A Concept paper titled ‘Preparing society to create the world we need through ‘One Health’ education has been released calling for interested parties to step forward to help with planning. The One Health concept encompasses a wide range of global public health and comparative medicine endeavors.

Dr. George Lueddeke, one of the “One Health” educational project leaders and author of a new One Health oriented book on global population health and well-being, said that, “In keeping with the UN 2030 global Agenda for Sustainability, there is an urgent need for collective action by policy-makers, public / private educators, and health professionals to provide global ONE HEALTH learning opportunities across the education spectrum.”  

We must give younger generations in both low and high income nations “a better deal” for helping to shape a sustainable world, one that is being tested severely by a threatened environment, conflicts, inequities, poverty, ideological extremes, and consumerism. Time is running short. As one example, data from the Living Planet Index (2014) should “make us stop and think”: “in less than two human generations, population sizes of vertebrate species have dropped by half. These are the living forms that constitute the fabric of the ecosystems which sustain life on earth and the barometer of what we are doing to our planet, our only home.”

“It is becoming increasingly clear that realigning our relationship with the planet and ourselves  rests not with individuals or groups who follow their own narrow self- interests - corporate, political, ideological - but with people who value collaborative approaches to these challenges and who embrace a bolder, broader more hopeful scope of human existence within a sustainable world”, Lueddeke said.

The two groups will work closely with global partners (social, economic, environmental) and support One Health projects led by teachers who want to make a difference.  Adequate funding is being sought and would be made available for innovative curriculum development and implementation beginning in primary/secondary schools and extending through graduate and professional education.

A small pre-project proposal conference is being organized with a goal of achieving consensus on a strong plan to fund the envisioned global learning program. The longer term aim is to establish a multi-dimensional coordinating mechanism to define project parameters, encourage project proposals, prioritize and allocate funding for One Health themed curriculum development projects at local, national and regional levels and evaluate outcomes worldwide.


About the initiators:


The One Health Commission is a globally focused 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting improved health of people, domestic animals, wildlife, plants and the environment. Committed to creating unifying interactions and opportunities between animal health, human health and planetary health, it is a gateway for the active exchange of One Health-related knowledge, sharing of resources and collaborative projects that reach beyond disciplinary boundaries. Working to train the next generation of One Health leaders, the Commission seeks to ‘Connect’ One Health Advocates, to ‘Create’ networks and teams that work together across disciplines to ‘Educate’ about One Health and One Health issues. It does this by leading and facilitating active One Health education initiatives around the world. It is the parent organization for the One Health Education Task Force.

The One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team was originally established in 2006-2007.  The One Health Initiative website, originated October 2008, has been called "the international clearing house for significant One Health information" and by some the "New York Times of One Health.” Its world-wide circulation has been strengthened by its up-to-date One Health News, Publications and Upcoming Events postings relative to animal, human and environmental health.  It is currently estimated to be accessed monthly by roughly 20,000 individual visitors from over 150 countries.  The OHI website is known to have had at least 119 reciprocal links worldwide.  Among the leading high profile search engines the One Health Initiative website is listed first or among the first when either “One Health Initiative” or “One Health” are searched.
