World health officials call for global action on antimicrobial resistance

Published on July 2, 2014 by Emma Rogers

“Health officials across the world recently called on lawmakers to do more to address the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which may hamper the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.” …

Reducing antimicrobial resistance will require a One Health approach combining efforts of many stakeholders and sectors, especially in the fields of health, agriculture and aquaculture to work together using synergistic and complementary approaches. The effectiveness and future use of antimicrobials must be preserved for the treatment of human and animal diseases.”

The Age of Contagion- The Huffington Post College (The Blog)

The Age of Contagion

By *Lonnie J. King, DVM, MS, MPA - Former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) new National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne and Enteric Diseases (NCZVED) and current Dean and Professor, College of Veterinary Medicine, The Ohio State University (USA)

“Grim predictions of infectious diseases have been with us as long as recorded history. As author David Quammen remarked in a recent New York Times editorial, our once sunny optimism that modern miracle antibodies would stop modern-day plagues has proven to be mistaken.

Scary new viral diseases such as MERS, SARS, Monkeypox and the West Nile virus are merely the latest examples of zoonotic diseases -- those passed from animals to humans -- which are now responsible for almost 75 percent of new human infectious diseases over the last quarter century. ...

... This moment in time demands that scientists and health-care workers move beyond the boundaries of their professions and adopt a One Health mindset to match the scale and complexity of human and animal health needs. Nothing less is acceptable. Our world hangs in the balance as we race to come to grips with our new microbial mysteries in labs around the world.”

Barriers to, Efforts in, and Optimization of Integrated One Health Surveillance: A Review and Synthesis

Published online: 18 April 2015 © International Association for Ecology and Health 2015

Abstract

Insufficient data from existing surveillance systems underlie societal tolerance of acute and slow-onset health disasters that threaten, harm, and kill vast numbers of humans, animals, and plants. Here we describe barriers to integrated “One Health” surveillance, including those related to a lack of medical services, professional divisions, incompatible vocabularies, isolated data sets, and territorial borders. We draw from publications of experts who justify broader and more integrated surveillance, education, and stewardship focused on preventing and mitigating disease emergence and re-emergence. In addition, we highlight efforts from Illinois, the United States and the broader world, pointing to examples of relevant education; ways to acquire, compile, and analyze diagnostic and syndromic data; mapping of diseases of humans and animals; and rapid communication of findings and recommendations. For the future, we propose using needed outcomes for health and sustainability to set priorities for One Health programs of education, surveillance, and stewardship. Professionals and paraprofessionals should gather, interpret, and widely communicate the implications of data, not only on infectious diseases, but also on toxic agents, malnutrition, ecological damage, the grave impacts of warfare, societal drivers underlying these problems, and the effectiveness of specific countermeasures.

“One Health recognizes that the health of humans, other animals, and ecosystems is interconnected.  It involves applying a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary, and cross-sector approach to address potential or existing risks that originate at the interface of humans, other animals, and ecosystems1. Because weather and climate affect the health and well-being of humans, other animals, and ecosystems, meteorologists and climate scientists bring fundamental knowledge, skills, and experiences that can improve health today and throughout the coming decades. ...”

Colorado State University (CSU) scientists working together through the One Health initiative to solve big problems

“As the human population around the world continues to increase, the demand for resources such as food, water and land is also increasing, which can create complex problems in society.

Mark Stetter, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and one of the leaders of the One Health initiative at CSU, explained that some diseases, such as the plague and tularemia, are passed from animals to humans. Rates of infection are influenced by interactions between humans, animals and the environment. ...”
