Flu Hunter: Unlocking the Secrets of a Virus - U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal (EID) - Wednesday, September 18, 2019

One Health in Action...

“...Two themes appear throughout the book. The first is that influenza is a quintessential One Health pathogen that can only be understood when studied in humans and other animals but especially in both its wild and domestic bird reservoirs. Throughout his career, Webster has championed this approach, which has led to many of the breakthroughs in how we approach influenza prevention and control today. The second theme is the need for collaboration and cooperation to successfully address the challenges posed by influenza, an idea Webster has lived out by mentoring and working with influenza scientists throughout the world. ...”

Flu Hunter: Unlocking the Secrets of a Virus offers an engaging and highly readable homage to the influenza virus by one of the world’s preeminent influenza virologists, Dr. Rob Webster (Figure). Although the book is nominally an autobiographical account of Webster’s career, the central figure is often the influenza virus itself, with each of the 17 chapters focusing on an influenza-related event from the past century. ...

One Health support and recognition continues itís worldwide expansion... - Thursday, September 12, 2019

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams addressed an audience of veterinary professionals Aug. 3 during the opening session of AVMA Convention 2019 in Washington, D.C. Dr. Adams oversees approximately 6,500 uniformed health officers in the U.S. Public Health Service, of which about 75 are veterinarians.

As the "nation's doctor," Dr. Adams is responsible for promoting, protecting, and advancing the country's health. "My guiding principle is 'Better health through better partnerships.' We can only change our collective futures together. If you stay in your veterinary silo, then all the knowledge you have isn't going to be utilized to maximal impact," said Dr. Adams, an enthusiastic supporter of the one-health movement.

Dr. Adams has created several initiatives to tackle the nation's most pressing health problems, including the opioid epidemic. He encouraged veterinarians to carry naloxone, a federally approved medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. He also highlighted a digital postcard titled "Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General's Spotlight on Opioids" that calls for a cultural shift in the way Americans think about, talk about, and respond to the opioid crisis.

Study finds factors at national level more influential to combat antibiotic misuse - Monday, September 09, 2019

“...That finding is significant in that media campaigns have long focused on raising awareness of antibiotic resistance and proper use on an individual level. While such efforts can be successful, it can be too costly, time-consuming and inadequate to address a problem on an international scale. The authors argue approaching the problem on a national scale would be more effective and that the findings can help policymakers decide where to invest in addressing antibiotic-resistant microbials and antibiotic misuse. That echoes the approach the World Health Organization has called for in its One Health Initiative, which advocates for health professionals, government and media jointly addressing the problem. ...”

 


An important historical link between vaccination(s) and the One Health concept...D.A. Henderson, MD, MPH of Smallpox Eradication Fame Supported One Health - Saturday, September 07, 2019

An important historical link between vaccination(s) and the One Health concept...

Donald Ainslie Henderson was an American medical doctor, educator, and epidemiologist who directed a 10-year international effort that eradicated smallpox throughout the world and launched international childhood vaccination programs. From 1977 to 1990, he was Dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Wikipedia

Dr. Henderson strongly supported the One World-One Medicine-One Health concept/approach.  See his message to the One Health Initiative team:

 


D.A.Henderson, MD, MPH
Professor of Medicine and Public Health, University of Pittsburgh. Resident Scholar, Center for Biosecurity, U. of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Johns Hopkins University Distinguished Service Professor. Dean Emeritus, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Pier IV Building, Suite 210, Baltimore,
Maryland 21202

April 22, 2007 Dr. D. A. Henderson, legendary leader of the worldwide smallpox eradication program.

I thank you for your email and congratulate you and your colleagues in promoting the "One Medicine" concept. It is an initiative that is long overdue but, at the same time, I don't personally identify dramatic solutions that are apt to change the landscape in the short term. I would note that when one has had the good fortune to have enjoyed the tutelage of *Jim Steele during my tenure at CDC and periodically ever since, as a friend, the one medicine concept becomes well engrained. Indeed, when I came to Hopkins as Dean in 1977, I cast about to determine how we might link up with a veterinary school for research and educational purposes. Unfortunately, geography was simply too great a hurdle to overcome.

Bottom line: I would be more than happy to do whatever I could in support of your efforts.

*James H. Steele, DVM, MPH http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/news.php?query=james+h.+steele%2C+dvm%2C+mph founded the veterinary division in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 1947.  Dr. Steele worked closely with Dr. Henderson while both served as leaders of the CDC’s renowned Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) along with Alexander Langmuir, MD, MPH, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Langmuir who established the EIS.

Duke One Health Team Members Publish a Commentary on Zoonotic Influenza Viruses in Domestic Animals 

Recently, Duke One Health team members Laura Borkenhagen, Mai-Juan Ma, and Greg Gray and Professor Mo Salman (Colorado State University) published an important review article in the in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. They reviewed the risk of human infections with influenza A viruses circulating in poultry, swine, horses, cats, and dogs and concluded that, while all have risk of contributing to a pandemic, the greatest risk now seems to be from swine viruses. Their findings and conclusion are novel and a bit of a departure from the mainstream thinking, which is frequently most concerned about avian influenza viruses.

This book provides readers with information on the factors underlying the emergence of infectious diseases originating in animals and spreading to people. The One Health concept recognizes the important links between human, animal, and environmental health and provides an important strategy in epidemic mitigation and prevention. The essential premise of the One Health concept is to break down the silos among the different health professions and promote transdisciplinary collaborations. These concepts are illustrated with in-depth analyses of specific zoonotic agents and with examples of the successes and challenges associated with implementing One Health. The book also highlights some of the challenges societies face in confronting several specific zoonotic diseases. A chapter is included on comparative medicine to demonstrate the broad scope of the One Health concept. Edited by a team including the One Health Initiative pro bono members, the book is dedicated to those studying zoonotic diseases and comparative medicine in both human and veterinary medicine, to those involved in the prevention and control of zoonotic infections and to those in the general public interested in the visionary field of One Health.
