One Health Approach:

DGHI-Led Research Team Brings Life-Saving Rapid Flu Diagnostics to Mongolia

Published on Feb 12, 2016

Physician Greg Gray, MD, MPH Duke University professor of global health, infectious diseases and environmental sciences, has set up a remote research outpost in Mongolia that could detect the next global infectious disease pandemic.

Gray and his Mongolian colleagues are collaborating in a NIH (Fogarty International Center)-funded project that brings rapid influenza diagnostic equipment to rural areas where previously health professionals had to send samples to the national capitol and wait up to two weeks for results.

“This project will certainly help preserve the health of Mongolian people and their animals, and could potentially save lives,” said Gray. “In addition, we are bringing a new level of rigor to medical research in Mongolia, which is important to building capacity in the country’s health sector.”

Editorial comment

Launch of the ‘One Health Global Think-Tank for Sustainable Health & Well-being’ – 2030 (GHW-2030)

The adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the UN General Assembly in September 2015 opens a new era for global, regional, national and local initiatives to ensure the well-being and sustainability of the planet and people (1). The South Eastern European Journal of Public Health (SEEJPH) published several papers (Volumes 2,3,5) on the UN Global Goals (2, 3, 4). In addition, Prof Ulrich Laaser and Prof Vesna Bjegovic Mikanovic established together with Dr George Lueddeke a global think-tank on „Global Health, Governance, and Education‟ (5) to help inform the writing of the Epilogue of Dr Lueddeke‟s recent book entitled Global Population Health and Well-Being in the 21st Century – Towards New Paradigms, Policy, and Practice (6). In continuation of this process we worked with Dr. Joanna Nurse, head of the Commonwealth* Secretariat Health and Education Unit (HEU) (7, 8) and collectively founded the One Health Global Think Tank for Sustainable Health & Well-being – 2030‟ (GHW-2030).

A synopsis of the think-tank’s remit and membership is set out below. The summary is followed by a background paper outlining the GHW-2030 rationales, particularly in light of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (9), and the pressing need to incorporate holistic One World, One Health values, principles and practice (10, 11) - as these relate to environmental, social, economic and geopolitical spheres - with a view to guiding associated frameworks (12, 13), policies and enabling strategies. A listing of current GHW-2030 members and affiliations is also provided.

World Veterinary Association PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR WORLD VETERINARY DAY 2016

“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.
