|Webinar: One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2) - Thursday, June 23, 2016

Webinar: One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)
07/06/2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)
The rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria has created a crisis in medicine and veterinary medicine. The use of antibiotics as growth promoting agents in livestock has been a highly political issue. Europe approved avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic, in the 1970’s. Its widespread use led to the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE). In contrast, the US has requested that its livestock producers voluntarily stop using antibiotic growth promoting agents. Using a One Health approach by integrating the perspectives of medicine/public health and veterinary medicine/agriculture, this presentation briefly compares and contrasts the EU versus the US experience regarding antibiotic use, antibiotic resistance, and livestock production.
1. Understand the history behind low dose antibiotic use in agriculture.
2. Understand how the rise of vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) drove public policy in Europe.
3. Understand the different policy approaches in Europe and the U.S. regarding avoparcin, a growth-promoting antibiotic used extensively in pork production, and how they impacted VRE epidemiology.
4. Understand how genomics can play a crucial role in antimicrobial resistance surveillance.

General presentation of the conference
Organising this One Health Inter-Regional European Conference comes as a natural consequence of the momentum that the One Health concept has gathered for the last couple of years. Romania is truly honoured to be part of the One Health movement and firmly believes that due to its half of century experience in comparative medicine and not only, will have a positive impact on the One Health trajectory.
We invite all professions linked to One Health to attend this Conference, because One Health is best defined with the phrase “It’s all connected!”
The conference will be organised under the auspices of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) by close collaboration of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences and the One Health New Medical Concept Association in Romania.
|10th World Rabies Day, September 28th - Sunday, March 20, 2016
Global Alliance for Rabies Control - https://rabiesalliance.org/
Get ready for the 10th World Rabies Day, September 28th
September 28th, 2016 will be the 10th annual World Rabies Day. There are several exciting plans in the pipeline for this milestone in the event’s history and – of course - we look forward to hearing your plans too.
As you may know, one of the outcomes from the Global Meeting in December was a target of 2030 for the elimination of human deaths from canine rabies (a goal that will save the lives of countless animals too). Building on this outcome, the theme for World Rabies Day 2016 is
Rabies: Educate. Vaccinate. Eliminate.
You can find free downloadable logos in multiple languages and branding (like the image at the top of this email) for your documents and materials here
There are ideas, checklists and guidelines to organising an event here
And improving knowledge either to support your event or as part of your event has never been so easy with our free online courses, available here
A new way to register
Registering an activity takes five minutes and multiplies the impact of what you’re doing by making sure people outside your immediate network know about it.
As previously, you can register on our website here
Or - new for 2016 – you can register by creating a Facebook event. (Instructions on how to create a Facebook event are here - you'll need a Facebook account to do this.)
If you opt to register via Facebook please make sure you
1. invite @Global Alliance for Rabies Control to your event (so Facebook notify us and we can include your event in the total number of events), and
2. tag the event #WorldRabiesDay (so other people can find you and to build momentum behind the hashtag).
We will then register the event on our website and send you the link to your event page. This process aims to make sure all events are accounted for and shown on the event map (and only shown once!).
Regrettably, we cannot financially support individual events, but we are here to offer guidance, suggestions and connections where we can, so please get in touch if you have any questions.
As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, there is more in the pipeline and we will be in touch soon with updates. We look forward to sharing them with you - and we look forward to sharing your World Rabies Day events with the world.
Let's keep pushing for elimination by 2030 by making #WorldRabiesDay 2016 the best so far.
