“Continuing Education with a One Health Focus”

“I am very excited to announce and applaud World Veterinary Day 2016 on Saturday, April 30, with the theme of “Continuing Education with a One Health Focus”.  This year we celebrate three important topics.

First, World Veterinary Day, established in the year 2000 by the World Veterinary Association, honors the many contributions veterinarians and veterinary technicians/nurses provide to animals and people in communities all over the world.  Veterinarians prevent and treat illness in animals everywhere.  They respond to help in natural and manmade disasters, educate the next generation, and discover new vaccines, medicines and treatments for animals and people.  Veterinarians monitor, report and control animal and human disease outbreaks across the globe, and provide quality health care to food producing animals.  Through their work and dedicated commitment, veterinarians make the world a better and safer place for both animals and people.

Second, we celebrate the importance of continuing education - for lifelong learning, so veterinarians and other health care workers remain vigilant and competent to provide the best services for animals and people with the best results.  Knowledge gives all of us the potential and ability to be the best we can be for the purposes we have in life.

Third, we celebrate the importance of the One Health concept and approach – that the health of people and animals is intimately connected and people need to communicate and work across many professions for the greater public good.  People benefit from animals through companionship, protection, safe and nutritious food products, work-related and recreational activities, the biodiversity of our wildlife, and research and new knowledge to better our lives.

The World Veterinary Association applauds the veterinary medical profession today and every day for their work around the world, and will recognize a veterinary medical association with the World Veterinary Day Award for highlighting continuing educations efforts that focus on a One Health issue in their community. The Award is co-sponsored by the World Organization of Animal Health (OIE), and will be presented during the OIE General Assembly in Paris the last week of May.

One Health stories: telling tales from four years of research

28 April 2016

A multimedia album detailing how an ambitious One Health project is making a difference to people’s lives has been launched. It come at the end of four years of multidisciplinary research into animal-to-human disease transmission undertaken by IDS and 20 partner institutions.

The album draws together success stories from the Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa Consortium, an ambitious project led by Professor Melissa Leach, Director of IDS. The stories tell how:

·                                 Research in Kenya into the drivers of Rift Valley fever (RVF) led to the creation of detailed risk maps used by the Kenyan authorities in its disease monitoring and containment strategy late last year when an RVF epidemic threatened.

·                                 Work in Zimbabwe mapping the distribution of tsetse flies identified a new trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) prevention strategy both more effective and cheaper than that currently used.

·                                 Studying the ways in which people in Ghana interact with the bats they live among means policymakers and risk communicators can now be better equipped to develop and target public health messages about bat-borne diseases.

World Animal Vaccination Day 2016 - Press release

HealthforAnimals and the World Veterinary Association are pleased to launch the first annual World Animal Vaccination Day, taking place on Wednesday 20 April 2016.

World Animal Vaccination Day will raise awareness of the vital role vaccines play in protecting the health of animals and, as a result, people too.

Each year will have a different theme, and the inaugural day will focus on the importance of cat vaccination and keeping these vaccines up to date. E.g. thanks to widespread vaccination less than 1-2% of healthy cats in the world have feline leukaemia[1] .

75% of all new human pathogens originate from animals, and so vaccines are key to limiting the future spread of infectious diseases between animals to people around the world.

Carel du Marchie Sarvaas, Executive Director at HealthforAnimals says: “The benefits of vaccination are manifold. Vaccination not only protects animal health and improves welfare through reduced disease, it is also vital to protect human health. For instance, vaccinating just 70% of the dog population is enough to eliminate the risk of rabies infections in people. Vaccination of food-producing animals helps to ensure a safe and sustainable supply of protein, which is especially important as the population continues to grow.”

Dr René Carlson, President of the World Veterinary Association added: “Cats receive much less attention from preventive healthcare, including vaccination, than most other domestic species. The primary reason is that around 50% of cat owners only visit a veterinarian when their cats are sick or injured. However, vaccination helps to protect your cat against several serious and/or life-threatening diseases and is the most effective and least expensive method to keep cats healthy in the first place. Decisions about vaccines for cats are based on the cat’s age, lifestyle, contact with other cats and the availability of licensed vaccines in the country, so it is important to discuss what vaccines your cat needs with your local veterinarian.”


HealthforAnimals is an organisation representing manufacturers of veterinary medicines, vaccines and other animal health products in both developed and developing countries across five continents. The mission of HealthforAnimals is to foster a greater understanding of animal health matters and promote a predictable, science-based regulatory environment that facilitates the supply of innovative and quality animal medicines, vaccines and other animal health products into a competitive market place. These products contribute to a healthy and safe food supply as well as a high standard of health and welfare for animals and people. For further information on HealthforAnimals visit:
