WONCA News – November 2017
The latest WONCA News (November 2017) is still accessible via the WONCA website, with lots of WONCA news, views and events. As ever, many articles also appear in Spanish and French. December’s WONCA News will appear over the weekend of 15/16 December.

WONCA Working Party on the Environment: Planetary Health in South America

In August’s WONCA News we included a report from Ralph Guggenheim about using WONCA conferences to promote the issue of planetary health, and he reported on his experiences at WONCA Europe in Prague. Now Paola Rava Dellepiane, WONCA Working Party on the Environment member, writes more on this issue, and describes her experiences at the WONCA Iberoamericana-CIMF Conference, in Lima, Perú, from 17th to 20th  August, 2017. The article also refers to WONCA’s Policy Statement on Planetary Health, which was endorsed by WONCA Executive at its April 2017 meeting.  

WONCA and One Health
Remaining on an environmental theme, a reminder that WONCA is a partner with the One Health Initiative. One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment. We’re proud to be one of a long and prestigious list of supporters, and encourage anyone with an interest in health and the environment to access their website for further information.

 “Between animal and human medicine there are no dividing lines--nor should there be. The object is different but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine.”

One Health Approach Supports Global Health Security

 

 

Diseases, including zoonotic diseases, can spread around the world very quickly, and the One Health approach can help to protect people and animals from illnesses that cross borders. CDC and its partners support One Health activities in the United States and globally, helping to prevent, detect, and respond to emerging global health threats including zoonotic diseases shared between people and animals.

 

CDC’s Emerging Infectious Diseases journal is featuring a special supplement on Global Health Security, which includes articles highlighting how the One Health approach plays an important role in creating a safer global community.

The One Health curriculum also includes a One Health survey course, a seminar in the occupational health of animal workers, an original research thesis and a practicum experience. Potential practicum sites include medical clinics and hospitals, the Washington One Health Initiative involving state health and agriculture agencies and other partners, CDC, emerging disease programs, disease mapping organizations, climate change organizations, homeless health care organizations, conservation medicine sites, and wildlife health organizations, both in the US and internationally.

Funding Opportunities:  A limited number of Occupational Health at the Human Animal Interface (OHHAI) Scholarships, including tuition and stipend are offered through the UW Center for One Health Research. The OHHAI training program is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) through the UW Northwest Center for Occupational Health & Safety (NWCOHS).The two year OHHAI training program promotes a "One Health" approach to the current lack of adequate research and best practices regarding the occupational health of animal workers. OHHAI Scholars must do their practicum and thesis work on topics related to animal worker occupational health. Animal workers interact with animals in a wide range of settings ranging from veterinary clinics to research laboratories, farms, markets, zoos, aquariums, and wildlife environments. They face unique and important health issues including exposure to zoonotic infectious diseases, allergens, and injury risks.

Gubernatorial Proclamation Signing [Iowa (USA) One Health Month!] – November 22, 2017

 

On behalf of the Iowa One Health committee of Iowa, we'd like to invite you to attend a Proclamation signing by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds declaring the month of November as Iowa One Health Month!

 

The Proclamation signing will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 11:30am in the Governor's formal office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please arrive by 11:15am. Anyone is welcome to attend and free parking (map) is available around the Capitol Complex.

 

The purpose of this Proclamation is to support, strengthen and expand One Health-related efforts in Iowa, and to increase awareness of One Health principles to improve human health, veterinary health, agriculture, and land stewardship. 

 

One Health is defined as the collaborative effort of multiple health and social science professions, together with their related disciplines and institutions – working locally, nationally, and globally – to attain optimal health for people, domestic animals, wildlife, and our environment. To learn more about the Iowa One Health Conference, visit here https://www.public-health.uiowa.edu/ceid/other-ceid-events/conferences/.

 

Your attendance at this Proclamation signing would help demonstrate the importance of developing solutions to many interconnected problems that impact the health of humans, animals, and the environment. 

 

We hope to see you on November 22! 

 

 

Sincerely, 

 

 

Neil Vezeau & Jake Swanson, MPH
