ONE HEALTH INCLUDES MENTAL HEALTH by H. Steven Moffic, MD, DLFAPA - Friday, December 28, 2018

ONE HEALTH INCLUDES MENTAL HEALTH

“In the middle of the past century, Dr. Brock Chisholm [https://www.who.int/dg/chisholm/chisholm/en/], who was the first Director-General of the World Health Association (WHO), famously stated that “without mental health there can be no true physical health”. With that truism, as a psychiatrist, I strongly endorse the philosophy and action of the One Health Initiative. There can only be mutual benefits between One Health and the various Mental Health disciplines. In my personal work on addressing climate instability, the high suicide rate of veterinarians, and the escalating mental health problems all over the world, I view One Health as the only organization I know of that is tying together all the components necessary for the well-being of our planet and all its inhabitants.”

*H. Steven Moffic, M.D., DLFAPA

Over his decades long career as a psychiatrist, *Dr. H. Steven Moffic has received numerous awards for his administrative, clinical, educational, and ethical work. Among them, in 2002 Dr. Moffic was awarded the one-time designate as a Hero of Public Psychiatry by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) [https://www.psychiatry.org/]. In 2016, he received the intermittently given Administrative Psychiatry (APA) Award from the APA and the American Association of Psychiatric Administrators (AAPA) [http://www.psychiatricadministrators.org/]. At the turn of the new millennium, he was elected President of the American Association for Social Psychiatry (AASP) [https://www.socialpsychiatry.org/]. Recently, Dr. Moffic formed the informal Psychiatrists for Environmental Action and Knowledge (PEAK), which morphed into the formal Climate Psychiatry Alliance (CPA) [https://www.climatepsychiatry.org/]. He is a prolific writer and speaker on a multitude of topics.

DESCRIPTION:

 

“Dr. Bernadette Dunham discussed interconnections of human and animal health with environmental health. She explained that no one discipline or sector of society has enough knowledge and resources to prevent the emergence or resurgence of diseases in today's globalized world. This "One Health" concept is a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals, and the environment.”

Disease detectives trap bats in Python Cave to solve the mysteries of Marburg

bat

Python Cave in Uganda is not only home to snakes, but to thousands of Egyptian fruit bats. Several recent human cases of Marburg virus – a close cousin to Ebola – have surfaced with links to these bats, and nearby villages have experienced devastating outbreaks.

To better understand how Marburg virus is transmitted from bats to people, CDC worked with Ugandan experts to put GPS units on the backs of bats to track their movements. By learning where the bats travel at night, we hope to better predict which areas are most at risk for Marburg and stop the next outbreak before it ever starts.

‘One Health’ keeps humans one step ahead of the microbes

December 12, 2018

 

 For a healthy planet, the health of all living creatures is equally important. One Health is a fairly new concept that prioritizes an interdisciplinary approach in science — to preserve the health of animals, humans and the environment. It is an approach that can be extended to any problem.

The history of One Health can be traced to the term “One Medicine,” coined by veterinary epidemiologist Calvin Schwabe and the later 12 Manhattan Principles, published by the Wildlife Conservation Society in 2004. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a website listing several One Health projects and several other organisations now operate on similar principles — such as the One Health Commission, One Health initiative and One Health platform.

This approach is important now because 75 per cent of emerging infectious diseases in humans have an animal origin. As our human population expands, deforestation and climate change will increase the potential for transfer of microorganisms from wildlife to humans and vice versa.

In this article, we have used two examples to explain the principles of One Health. We highlight how they enable us to tackle emerging problems that require solutions at the human-animal-environment interface. ...

Medical students taking action on AMR - International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations: - Tuesday, December 11, 2018

“... Blanca Paniello and Vicky Kastner International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is threatening the effectiveness of our medications minute by minute. The European Commission states that approximately 33,000 deaths per year in Europe are due to AMR. This situation is set to worsen, reaching an estimated number of 10 million deaths worldwide in 2050 compared to 8.2 million deaths from cancer. Do we need more evidence? No! what’ is needed now is action to tackle this unsustainable crisis. This crucial goal can only be achieved if we consider the One Health concept, as a holistic approach underlying all other policies to tackle drug-resistant infections.

As the medical professionals of the future, we medical students must reinvent and enhance what is already established as we will face the consequences if nothing is done to tackle AMR now.  One way to contribute to AMR control is to raise awareness, spread the word and educate people about this topic. ...”

“The professional and student organisations representing medical doctors, the dentists and the veterinarians of Europe call on academics and policymakers at national and European level to foster exchanges between medical, dental and veterinary schools under the One Health1 approach.

1 http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/

The organisations recognise education as the cornerstone to build their common One Health competences. The organisations believe that a true understanding of One Health requires an interdisciplinary approach. The integrated education of all future health professionals is fundamental for tackling current and future health challenges for our society.

Today, the conference ‘Implementation of One Health in undergraduate education’ is held in Paris and brings together academics, practitioners and students to exchange views on the concept of One Health. The debate identifies challenges and looks into best practices on how to facilitate interdisciplinary education for interdisciplinary collaboration.

The Council of European Dentists, the European Dental Students’ Association, the Standing Committee of European Doctors, the European Medical Students Association, the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe and the International Veterinary Students’ Association remain committed partners for future actions to be undertaken towards the implementation of the One Health approach in education and practice.

Outcomes of today’s discussion will be shared after the meeting. ...”
