WONCA (World Organization of Family Doctors [physicians] and ONE HEALTH - JAN 18, 2019 - Friday, January 18, 2019

Published in WONCA [World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA)] E-Update Friday 18th January 2019

 

WONCA and OneHealth
One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. It is a collaborative, multisectoral, and trans-disciplinary approach—working at the local, regional, national, and global levels—with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment. 

WONCA is pleased to support all aspects of the OneHealth initiative, and all those who heard Dr Kate Anteyi’s plenary at WONCA’s world conference in Korea in October will know how important this interdisciplinary approach is in preventing the next major epidemic.

One Health (r)Evolution: Learning from the Past to Build a New Future

Ilaria Capua 1,* and Giovanni Cattoli 2

 

Abstract

“The One Health concept recognizes that the health of human beings, animals, plants and the environment is interconnected and interdependent. This idea has been shaped over the centuries and has gained momentum and traction as anatomy, physiology, microbiology and other disciplines have substantiated earlier theories. Here we recall major historical milestones which have contributed to shaping the One Health concept as it is today, and discuss the past and future drivers in view of future challenges in an evolving scenario.

A one health opinion editorial RE: ideal protocol for future international one health congress meetings, all inclusive modus operandi

‘…Whereas previous Congresses have been very good by all accounts, they have not adequately been all inclusive with respect to addressing a broad spectrum, co-equal recognition and exposure to both One Health essential priorities, i.e. global public health and global clinical health considerations, among a few others. Frankly, this has been known to occur due to concerns about securing adequate funding for public health research projects vis-à-vis clinical health missions, etc. In addition, there have been justifiable complaints regarding the meetings being “too veterinarian oriented without enough physician and other health science professional representations.” Hopefully, this next Congress will demonstrate a more ecumenical approach while addressing the issue of attracting a broader spectrum of health science oriented attendees. Human, animal and environmental health (eco-health) are in dire need of such a far reaching protocol endeavor. Spotlighted International Congresses need to become free from sectarian predominance, or even the hint of tribalism. They need to take the high road: begin “appealing to their better angels” in the true spirit of “One World-One Medicine-One Health.” An accurate and complete mosaic image of one health requires that all pieces be present and in place.’

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - "Population Health Training" [One Health in Action] - Sunday, January 06, 2019

 

“Attention physicians, veterinarians, nurses, and PhDs with a Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree: Want to become a population health leader while on the job? Applications for CDC’s Population Health Training In Place Program opened January 1!

[see short link: https://www.cdc.gov/pophealthtraining/]

CDC views population health as an interdisciplinary, customizable approach that allows health departments to connect practice to policy for change to happen locally. This approach utilizes non-traditional partnerships among different sectors of the community – public health, industry, academia, health care, local government entities, etc. – to achieve positive health outcomes. Population health “brings significant health concerns into focus and addresses ways that resources can be allocated to overcome the problems that drive poor health conditions in the population.”

Two examples of strategies developed by CDC to address population health are:


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.

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.
