Title

 

One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance (Part 1 of 2)

 

Overview: 
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. 

Learning Objectives: 
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.

U.S. One Health Commission (OHC) Sponsors Important One Health Webinar –July 13, 2016 at 11am EDT with Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP Presenting

 

"One Health can provide a safe, 'no judgment zone' for many needed conversations surrounding our most difficult global and environmental health challenges. Yesterday [July 6, 2016] the One Health Commission was pleased to present Dr. Kahn's data driven research in her webinar, 'One Health and the Politics of Antibiotic Resistance'. The first of a two-part series, that webinar saw over 200 online attendees from over 30 countries. Now that the word is out, next week's webinar on 'Antimicrobial Resistance and the Environment' will likely draw even more participants."

Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

 

07/13/2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM  EDT

 

Title: Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Part 2 of 2)

 

Overview: 
This presentation will discuss findings of widespread antibiotic resistance in the environment. Massive amounts of human and animal waste applied to agricultural fields alter the global “resistome.” Wildlife never exposed to antibiotics harbor antibiotic resistant bacteria in their feces. The Human Microbiome project has found that microbial cells outnumber human cells by an estimated 10-fold, fundamentally changing our perceptions about health and disease. Taken together, the findings of antibiotic resistance in external and internal environments suggest that human antibiotic use has altered global microbial populations in ways that we do not fully understand. We are fast approaching a post antibiotic era. This presents challenges and opportunities and will require a One Health approach to succeed. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Understand the 21st century challenges posed by the growing human population and its increasing demands for terrestrial and aquatic animal proteins. 
2. Develop familiarity with metagenomics and “The Global Resistome.” 
3. Understand how open defecation jeopardizes human, animal, and environmental health. 
4. Understand how application of manure to agricultural fields alters the global “resistome” and harms global health.

General presentation

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.

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. 

Theme
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.

Resources
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

 

 

Rounded Rectangle: World Rabies Day 2016 - Event Resources

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!).

Questions?
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. 

Stay tuned...
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.

Warm regards,
Liz Davidson

Date & Time

 

Monday, December 12, 2016 at 12:00 - 1:30 pm ET

 

Presenter

 

Dr. Tracey Dutcher, DVM, MS, DACVPM, USDA APHIS One Health Coordination Center

Dr. Tracey Dutcher is part of a team coordinating the animal health component of One Health within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.   Prior to joining USDA, Tracey spent 7 years as an epidemiologist in Federal and state public health agencies (CDC, Indian Health Service and the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services), working across the spectrum from outbreak investigation and response to policy development.  Tracey specializes in facilitating the development of innovative partnerships with Federal Agencies, academia, and industry to increase efficiency and effectiveness of managing complex health threats through cross-disciplinary collaboration.  Her current priorities include working with academic partners to build and apply practical tools that enable an ‘operational’ approach to working across organizational and disciplinary lines.  Dr. Dutcher is an alumnus of the CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service, and a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. 

 

Description

 

Over the last decade, the One Health approach has gained support as a valuable way to address complex issues at the interface of humans, animals, and the environment.  Moving from theory to application is more challenging, though, and experts within each sector are eager for practical tools that enable an ‘operational’ approach to working across agency and disciplinary lines.
The One Health Systems Mapping and Analysis Resource Toolkit (OH-SMART) was co-developed by the University of Minnesota and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to meet this need.  Dr. Dutcher will provide an overview of the OH SMART
TM toolkit and describe outcomes from recent applications including during a workshop at the ISDS annual meeting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Jennie Lane is an Animal Health and Livelihoods Technical Advisor for Land O'Lakes International Development.  She recently relocated to Washington DC after working for a year in Malawi with a USAID funded Livestock for Resilience.  Jennie's current research focuses on better understanding the pathways of impact livestock transfer programs have on food security and nutrition at the household level, and the role of financial services in livestock development programming.   

A native of upstate New York, Jennie graduated from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and spent six years practicing equine and small animal medicine in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Her work with working equines as a veterinarian in developing countries around the world, including the Dominican Republic, India, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Montserrat, and Costa Rica, inspired her interest in better understanding the relationships between livestock health, livelihoods, and human health and nutrition. In May 2014, she received a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a global health concentration from the University of California, Berkeley. Her MPH research investigated the relationships between working equine health and human health and livelihoods in Nicaragua. Jennie is particularly interested in sustainable and collaborative interventions to improve livelihoods of the world's poorest small holder farmers, and has a special love for working equines (horses, donkeys and mules).  In her free time, you can find Jennie unplugged in the wilderness, on a bicycle or sailing.

Dr. Will Sander will discuss pharmaceuticals in water from a global perspective. Pharmaceuticals do not just have intended effects as most get into the water system and can have unintended consequences on the environment, animals, and potentially people. As part of his time at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Will performed independent research looking at pharmaceutical occurrence around the world and policies and strategies from a global perspective.

 

Currently, Will is a veterinary specialist government contractor with Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, DC supporting the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) within the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), part of the Department of Defense. His work centers on supporting CBEP to identify gaps in and bolster support for biosurveillance for human and animal health systems around the world. He also is a volunteer wildlife veterinarian at City Wildlife, Washington D.C.'s only wildlife rehabilitation center. Prior to Booz Allen Hamilton, he was an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellow at U.S. EPA, Office of Water/Office of Science and Technology looking at potential human health impacts from pharmaceuticals in water. Dr. Sander received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Colby College, his DVM from University of Wisconsin-Madison and his MPH in Global Health from Yale University. He's a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. Will directs the One Health Academy in Washington, D.C. and is the AVMA House of Delegates (HOD) alternate for DCVMA.

Important “One Health” 21st century History:

June 2007- American Medical Association Meeting during “One Health” resolution testimony.  Historic resolution subsequently adopted.

Left to right: Ronald M. Davis, MD, President AMA, Roger K. Mahr, DVM, President, American Veterinary Medical Association and Laura H. Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP of Princeton University.

The AMA “One Health” resolution was originally drafted by Dr. Kahn under Dr. Davis’s guidance. Thomas P. Monath, MD and Bruce Kaplan, DVM assisted.  The historic “One Health” liaison between AVMA and AMA [in effect today] was fostered by collaboration between Drs. Mahr and Davis.
