"...One of the key areas of joint efforts has been tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) through the "One Health" approach. The Summit featured dedicated sessions on this.

AMR is a multi-faceted challenge, with drivers going beyond mere overuse or misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals. The ''One Health'' approach also looks at environmental factors that contribute to the AMR burden, including inadequately treated effluent from pharmaceutical manufacturing units, run-off from poultry farms, slaughterhouses, and liquid waste from hospitals, said a statement from the Netherlands Embassy.

Compared to other countries in the European Union, resistance rates are particularly low in the Netherlands, primarily because of early adoption of the ''One Health'' approach, which aims to combat AMR holistically in the healthcare system, in animals, in food and in the environment through coordinated action. ..."

One Health concept/approach helps ALL regardless of political affiliations (USA)!

Stent several doctors have been credited with the creation of the stent, the first FDA-approved stent was invented by Cesare Gianturco and Gary S. Roubin and approved in 1993.[9]

The coronary artery stent was recently used to treat a heart attack (myocardial infarction) in 2020 presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT)  Others that have had similar therapy include former President Bill Clinton (D), former President George W. Bush (R),, and former Vice President Dick Cheny (R)

Heart Disease, an important “One Health” approach issue for comparative medicine research...worth repeating:

“The One Health Concept: How Multidisciplinary Training and Collaboration Leads to Major Advances in Health Care” endorsement by one of the principle discoverers of the First Balloon-Expandable Coronary Stent, Gary S. Roubin, DVM, MD, PhD, Medical Director, Cardiovascular Associates of the Southeast, 3980 Colonnade Parkway, Birmingham. AL 35243 (USA)   

Notably: Dr. Peter G. Anderson [DVM, PhD], a veterinarian, was part of the team that developed the first flexible coil balloon expandable intracoronary stent approved by the FDA for human use. This monumental development occurred in the early 1990’s and now – almost 100% of patients who undergo the balloon angioplasty procedure also get a stent. These stents can be coated with drugs to help the blood vessel heal after the balloon procedure to prevent scar tissue from forming leading to restenosis.  Today the drug coated stents that Dr. Anderson helped develop and holds a patent for are being used extensively to decrease morbidity and mortality in patients worldwide.

CURATED: The Intersection of Arts and Medicine


“...The main message of the exhibit is that humans, animals and bacteria are all connected.

“The secondary message of the exhibit is about working together,” Sholts said. “We have to work across disciplines—we have to work and collaborate across countries—because an outbreak anywhere is a threat everywhere.”

Sholts and her team at the NMNH conceived the idea of traveling DIY exhibits to promote their “one health” goal. ...”
