About the conference

ONE HEALTH” – A Single Health for People, Animals and the Environment – is the new Global Concept that brings together specialists’ concerns from all areas that condition health, including Nutrition, and The Occupational, with two main directions of action: Primary Prophylaxis of Life and Post-Therapy Life.

Worldwide human health disorders are increasing in volume, they are diversifying; accelerated climate change, population movements, new diseases with uncontrolled evolution and the antibiotic-resistant super-sensitive bacteria are the biggest challenges of the moment. In this context the implementation of the One Health Concept must become a national security objective for the balance and good functioning of society and for life as a priority, as the action is being addressed frontally in the US and now in the EU.

Established in May 2015, the One Health-New Medical Concept Association succeeded in just two years to bring together specialists and institutions that represent an enormous scientific potential that must be utilised a priori. More than 400 members and more than 20 institutions (universities, research institutes, hospitals and others entities), both in the country and abroad, subscribe to the Association’s approach. National designed projects, some in the world premiere, are in progress to capitalise on a Romanian unique expertise platform to solve some of the acute health problems of the society: antibiotic resistance (the great challenge of today’s medicine), the alarming incidence of zoonoses (infectious diseases transmitted on the animal-human route), increase and diversification almost uncontrolled of many diseases caused by climate change and population movements. Internationally, the One Health New Medical Concept Association, in fact, represents Romania at international congresses, to conclude international agreements in Brussels, at the European Federation of Medical Academies (FEAM) and does it with responsibility and success.

The One Health New Medical Concept Association has won the international recognition and appreciation of the Coordinating Forums of the One Health Concept, the One Health Commission and the US One Health Initiative. At European level, the Association received from the European Federation of Medical Academies (FEAM) the opportunity to promote the One Heath Concept at the South-East and Central Europe Region and also to start the research on One Health issue, a unique responsibility for a Romanian body. In this very context, in June 2017 the Association concluded a Partner Agreement in Budapest with the University of Veterinary Medicine from Budapest (ranked 6th in the world) for the joint organisation of One Health 2018 Inter-regional Conferences in Bucharest and One Health 2019 Inter-regional Conferences in Budapest.

“Bailey is itchy. And though this is probably too much information, his stools are runny. It’s likely he needs some vitamins, too. Like many humans going to their family doctor, Bailey — a dapper dog sporting a skull-and-crossbones bow tie — has a number of issues that require attention.

And Bailey is why a young man named Promo — who has some healthcare needs of his own— is at the One Health Clinic, a collaboration among New Horizons Ministries, Neighborcare Health, the University of Washington and Washington State University. It’s clear he loves his dog.

“I’ve had him for 10 years,” says Promo, running his hands through Bailey’s thick ginger coat. “He’s so soft, isn’t he?” ...”

Flyer Signalling and Risk Assessment of Emerging zoonoses. A One Health Approach in the Netherlands - February 2019 - Monday, June 10, 2019

Published by:

National Institute for Public Health and the Environment

Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

 

The Netherlands – February 2019

Diseases that are naturally transmitted from animals to humans are called zoonoses. Outbreaks or events involving new or re-emerging zoonoses also occur in the Netherlands. It is important to signal, assess and control zoonoses, especially since new zoonotic diseases will continue to emerge. An appropriate response to emerging zoonoses requires close cooperation between medical and veterinary professionals. Accordingly, a systematic One Health approach was developed and officially instituted for the purpose of sharing, assessing and responding to signals of new and re-emerging zoonotic infections in which veterinary and medical professionals work together.
