Confronting Emerging Zoonoses: The One Health Paradigm Hardcover – November 14, 2014

by Akio Yamada (Editor), Laura H. Kahn (Editor), Bruce Kaplan (Editor), Thomas P. Monath (Editor), Jack Woodall (Editor), Lisa Conti (Editor) & 1 more  ISBN-13: 978-4431551195 ISBN-10: 4431551190 Edition: 2014th

“This book provides readers with information on the factors underlying the emergence of infectious diseases originating in animals and spreading to people. The One Health concept recognizes the important links between human, animal, and environmental health and provides an important strategy in epidemic mitigation and prevention. The essential premise of the One Health concept is to break down the silos among the different health professions and promote transdisciplinary collaborations. These concepts are illustrated with in-depth analyses of specific zoonotic agents and with examples of the successes and challenges associated with implementing One Health.

The book also highlights some of the challenges societies face in confronting several specific zoonotic diseases. A chapter is included on comparative medicine to demonstrate the broad scope of the One Health concept. Edited by a team including the One Health Initiative pro bono members, the book is dedicated to those studying zoonotic diseases and comparative medicine in both human and veterinary medicine, to those involved in the prevention and control of zoonotic infections, and to those in the general public interested in the visionary field of One Health.”

One Health in Action Presentation

On August 25, 2014, Drs. Neil Olson and *Ralph Richardson, Deans of the University of Missouri and Kansas State University veterinary schools, respectively, gave a presentation entitled “One Health in Action” at the Kansas City Area Life Science Institute’s annual symposium (see attached Power Point slides).  This year’s symposium was on “Antibiotics: Choosing the Path of Least Resistance”.  Drs. Olson and Richardson had the opportunity to set the stage for the other symposium speakers as they explored the interfacing of animal health, human health and the environment.  The KCALSI symposium is part of the activities incorporated into the Kansas City Animal Health Corridor’s (KCAHC) Homecoming event and the Central Veterinary Conference’s annual continuing education meeting.

Ames, IA – The Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH) at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces the web-based course, Zoonoses: Protecting People and Their Pets. It will be offered October 20 – November 10, 2014.

The course, offered annually, provides an excellent opportunity for medical [i.e. physicians & veterinarians] and public health professionals and students to refresh and gain knowledge of key zoonotic diseases. The course includes lessons, case studies, a discussion board, and online resources to assist in conveying zoonotic disease prevention measures to clients.

“Companion animals play an important role in people’s lives,” said Dr. Glenda Dvorak, DVM, MPH, DACVPM, course instructor, Assistant Director, CFSPH. Dr. Dvorak emphasizes that “Partnerships between medical, public health and veterinary [medical] professionals are needed to raise awareness, enhance detection, and promote prevention of zoonotic diseases to protect the health of people and pets.”

The cost to register for the course is $90. This course is subsidized with support from the Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases (CEEZAD) at Kansas State University, a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence. All course participants will receive a copy of the *companion textbook (a $70 value).

 Abstract

One Health approaches have already been shown to be successful in controlling rabies in different parts of the world. In this article, the latest in Veterinary Record's series promoting One Health, Sarah Cleaveland and her colleagues at the University of Glasgow discuss why integrated strategies are needed to enhance the cost effectiveness of measures to control and eliminate rabies, particularly in low-income countries

AS One Health becomes more widely advocated, particularly within the veterinary profession, practitioners are coming under increasing scrutiny to demonstrate the added value of these approaches. Despite an intuitive appreciation that complex health problems need to be tackled through an integration of the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches that define One Health, there still remains a need to generate quantitative and qualitative evidence to clearly demonstrate these benefits (Okello and others 2011, Zinsstag and others 2011, Häsler and others 2012, Gibbs 2014).

One Health encompasses a wide variety of disease and health problems; however, zoonoses have always been an area of interest and, of these, rabies provides an exemplar of the benefits of a One Health approach. In this paper, we outline how One Health has underpinned successful rabies control programmes, and why integrated approaches are likely to be essential to enhance the cost-effectiveness of control and elimination measures, particularly in low-income countries.

Neglected zoonotic diseases (NZD) - World Health Organization

http://www.who.int/neglected_diseases/zoonoses/en/


Control of neglected zoonotic diseases at the human animal interface require integrated approaches [=“One Health”] and the application of veterinary science.

Neglected zoonotic diseases are a subset of the neglected tropical diseases. Zoonoses are diseases that are naturally transmitted from vertebrate animals to humans and vice-versa. Their management needs integrated approaches and application of veterinary science, which are part of the NTD strategic approach to transmission control. The term “neglected” highlights that diseases affect mainly poor and marginalized populations in low-resource settings.

Addressing this group of diseases requires collaborative, cross-sectoral efforts of human and animal health systems and a multidisciplinary approach that considers the complexities of the ecosystems where humans and animals coexist [=“One Health”]. Preventing and mitigating their occurrence in humans requires control and, where feasible, elimination of the diseases in their animal reservoirs.”

About the Book

“The integration of nanotechnology with biotechnology has led to great opportunities and revolutionizing technologies in biology and medicine. Targeted delivery of therapeutic agents, vaccine developments, imaging and novel diagnostic procedures have attracted prime attention of the scientists, who have been able to develop effective and validated nanoparticles and marketable products for human medicine. These developments are expeditiously extending to veterinary medicine because of the similar guiding principles and close linkages between the two disciplines of medicine. Nanotechnology thus has a great potential to revolutionize veterinary medicine, animal production systems and food security. It is important that these emerging technologies form a part of the curriculum of veterinary sciences, particularly in the context of One Health initiatives. This book presents an understanding of the concept, current status and future potential of nanotechnology in veterinary and animal sciences.
