European Parliament passes law restricting antibiotics in livestock

“...(41) Antimicrobial resistance to medicinal products for human use and veterinary medicinal products is a growing health problem in the Union and worldwide. Due to the complexity of the problem, its cross-border dimension and the high economic burden, its impact goes beyond its severe consequences for human and animal health and has become a global public health concern that affects the whole of society and requires urgent and coordinated intersectoral action in accordance with the "One Health" approach. Such action includes strengthening of the prudent use of antimicrobials, avoiding their routine prophylactic and metaphylactic use, actions to restrict the use in animals of antimicrobials that are of critical importance for preventing or treating life-threatening infections in humans and encouraging and incentivising the development of new antimicrobials. It also needs to be ensured that appropriate warnings and guidance are included on the labels of veterinary antimicrobials. Use that is not covered by the terms of the marketing authorisation of certain new or critically important antimicrobials for humans should be restricted in the veterinary sector. The rules for advertising veterinary antimicrobials should be tightened, and the authorisation requirements should sufficiently address the risks and benefits of antimicrobial veterinary medicinal products.  ...”

Helping the homeless by helping their pets

Persons experiencing homelessness and their pets both need medical care, yet many homeless persons with pets face barriers to accessing preventive medical services. These companion animals are often providing important psychosocial and/or physical support for their owners, and the strength of their bond with their pet often means owners are more motivated to seek care for their animals than for themselves. We seek to implement an innovative model for a pilot “One Health” clinic where the homeless of Seattle could seek care for both themselves as well as their pets. ...”

One Health Approach to Prevent Post-Disaster Outbreaks in Palu and Donggala


Oct. 9, 2018, 04:39 AM

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/

“... General Directorate of Infection Prevention and Control, Ministry of Health Republic of Indonesia dr. Anung Sugiantono stated that Palu, Donggala and regions around them are malaria endemic areas. Environmental changes after the earthquake and tsunami will facilitate the spread of diseases carried by the Anopheles mosquito. For this reason, One Health approach is needed to prevent the expansion of malaria endemic in Palu and its surroundings.

One Health is a collaborative effort of multi-professions and health institutions which work locally, nationally and globally in achieving optimal health through the prevention and mitigation of adverse impacts due to animal, human and environmental interactions. This means that doctors, veterinarians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, epidemiologists, and health institutions and other related institutions collaborate in addressing health issues. The One Health approach considers the role of changing environment with regard to the risk of infectious and chronic diseases affecting humans and animals.

Based on the situation, Prof. Wiku Adisasmito as INDOHUN (Indonesia One Health University Network) coordinator conveyed the importance of implementing One Health concept as an effective effort which could be applied in preventing the spread of post-disaster infectious diseases. "One Health concept developed by multi-disciplinary science and integrated cross-sector could prevent outbreaks of post-disaster diseases, especially the transmission of diseases between humans, animals and the environment." ...”
