FACT SHEET: President’s 2016 Budget Proposes Historic Investment to Combat Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria to Protect Public Health

Resistance can arise in bacterial pathogens affecting humans, animals, and the environment.  The adoption of a “One-Health” approach that integrates human health, veterinary, and ecosystem surveillance will help strengthen detection and control of antibiotic resistance.  Improved surveillance will be achieved through enhancement, expansion, and linkage of existing systems that monitor human and animal pathogens, including the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), the Emerging Infections Program (EIP), the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS), the National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), and animal health laboratories.”

Longstanding One Health history at University of Pennsylvania’s schools of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine

Longstanding One Health history at University of Pennsylvania’s schools of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine (USA)

“Since 1884, Penn Vet [the school of Veterinary Medicine] has recognized that human and veterinary medicine are inextricably intertwined.

Close ties with the Perelman School of Medicine, as well as numerous other schools, institutes and centers at the University of Pennsylvania and beyond, have resulted in groundbreaking research.”

Education

“… Penn Vet is the only veterinary school developed in association with a medical school, and is one of only four private veterinary schools in the nation. Penn Vet's two campuses, urban and rural, offer students learning opportunities and experiences in virtually every aspect of veterinary medicine. As part of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Vet is a key partner in one of the world's great biomedical research and teaching centers. Our students can learn first-hand how veterinary medicine and research impacts human lives, as well as those of animals.

The relationship between animal health and human health is the core of our teaching tradition. Our distinguished faculty members bring a diverse range of academic backgrounds and unique perspectives to the classroom and clinic that will broaden our students' views of veterinary medicine.”

Note:  Penn Vet’s visionary Dean, Joan Hendricks, VMD/PhD and prominent One Health leader assumed her responsibilities as the Gilbert S. Kahn Dean of Veterinary Medicine in 2006.  Dean Hendricks believes that veterinarians play an integral part in ensuring public health and food safety, guarding against bio- and agro-terrorism and working to protect the environment. She has played a lead role in lobbying to state legislators on behalf of the School. Dr. Hendricks is a member of the One Health Initiative Advisory Board.  See: http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/news.php?query=Prominent+Pennsylvania+%28USA%29+Veterinary+Medical+School+Dean+Joins+One+Health+Initiative+Team%92s+Honorary+Advisory+Board; http://www.vet.upenn.edu/about/what-we-do and http://www.vet.upenn.edu/about/who-we-are.

Investigating the zoonotic origin of the West African Ebola epidemic

http://embomolmed.embopress.org/content/early/2014/12/29/emmm.201404792

Abstract

The severe Ebola virus disease epidemic occurring in West Africa stems from a single zoonotic transmission event to a 2]year]old boy in Meliandou, Guinea. We investigated the zoonotic origins of the epidemic using wildlife surveys, interviews, and molecular analyses of bat and environmental samples. We found no evidence for a concurrent outbreak in larger wildlife. Exposure to fruit bats is common in the region, but the index case may have been infected by playing in a hollow tree housing a colony of insectivorous free]tailed bats (Mops condylurus). Bats in this family have previously been discussed as potential sources for Ebola virus outbreaks, and experimental data have shown that this species can survive experimental infection. These analyses expand the range of possible Ebola virus sources to include insectivorous bats and reiterate the importance of broader sampling efforts for understanding Ebola virus ecology.
