Webinar - Making One Health Operational – the One Health Systems Mapping and Analysis Resource ToolkitTM

 

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.

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.

The OIE and the WVA jointly celebrate World Veterinary Day 2017

 

On World Veterinary Day, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Veterinary Association (WVA) pay tribute to the crucial role played by veterinarians in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. This year, the event focuses on the action the profession can take to preserve the efficacy of antimicrobial treatments, which are essential resources to protect human health as well as animal health and welfare. Throughout the day, and all around the world, the many initiatives led by veterinarians to raise awareness on this essential issue in their countries will come under the spotlight.

 

THEME 2017

 

ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE - FROM AWARENESS TO ACTION

 

 

 

Paris/Brussels, 29 April 2017 – The availability and use of antimicrobial drugs has transformed the practice of human and animal medicine. Infections that were once lethal are now treatable, and the use of antimicrobial agents has advanced global health as well as animal health, which is a key component of animal welfare, food security and safety.

 

Safeguarding the efficacy of these life-saving medications, as well as their availability and effectiveness for both human and veterinary use, is essential to preserve our future. However, overuse and misuse of these drugs in humans, animals and plants sectors has dramatically accelerated the emergence of resistance to antimicrobials.

 

During its General Assembly in September 2016, the United Nations acknowledged thatAntmicrobial resistance reduces our ability to protect the health of animals and therefore is threatening safe and sustainable food and agriculture production". 

 

Veterinary practitioners have a key part to play in the fight against antimicrobial resistance: they are the direct interlocutors of paraprofessionals as well as farmers and animal owners, and can trigger a sustainable change in behaviour towards a responsible and prudent antimicrobial use.

 

Through their role in supervising the use of antimicrobials, offering professional advice to farmers and animal owners and collaborating with the human health sector, veterinarians have a key role to play in combatting the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. They are at the forefront to promote sound animal husbandry hygiene methods and the implementation of accurate vaccination strategies” highlights Dr Monique Eloit, OIE Director General. “They have the responsibility to raise awareness among farmers and animal owners on the prudent use of antibiotics and these actions are supported worldwide by the OIE Global Strategy against antimicrobial resistance”. 

 

 

WVA President Dr René Carlson says: The availability and use of antimicrobials are essential to ensure the good health and welfare of animals as well as people. After years of promoting awareness about the dangers of misusing antimicrobials, it is time we recognise the actions organisations around the world are taking to promote the responsible use of antimicrobials in both animals and people to prevent further development of antimicrobial resistance and the proper disposal of antimicrobials to protect our environment, such as our waterways and oceans. This is a One Health issue for which all health care providers, both human and veterinary, must take personal responsibility”.
