European Antibiotic Awareness Day 2017 - Statement by Vytenis Andriukaitis, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, and Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation

Brussels, 15 November 2017

Today we mark the 10th anniversary of the European Antibiotic Awareness Day, by raising awareness once more about the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – one of the biggest threats to global health. With 25 000 deaths per year and € 1.5 billion in healthcare costs and productivity losses in the EU, a robust communication effort is needed more than ever. But raising awareness is not enough, we need action that bridges differences and raises the level of all Member States to that of the highest performer.

With increasing resistance even to last-resort antibiotics such as Colistin, we face a frightening "post-antibiotic" future where we could lose the ability to perform any major surgery, organ transplant or successfully implant devices like new hips or heart valves. By 2050, AMR could potentially kill one person every three seconds and become a more common cause of death than cancer.

It is precisely to avoid this unthinkable future that on 29 June we presented a new One Health action plan against AMR, building on nearly two decades of EU action in both the human health and veterinary health sectors, taking account of the lessons learnt from the previous EU actions. It stresses that we need to tackle antimicrobial use in people and animals simultaneously, while better addressing the role of AMR in the environment. It stresses that the EU should play a leading role in the fight against AMR and should add value to Member States' actions.

The goal of the new Action Plan is to preserve our ability to effectively treat infections in humans and animals. The key objectives are: 'Making the EU a best practice region'; 'Boosting research and innovation'; and 'Shaping the global agenda'.  ...

Princeton University’s Laura Kahn, MD, MPH, MPP, a physician, spends her days analysing the risks of animal diseases jumping to humans – accidentally or deliberately. She talks to Andrew Masterson, news editor of cosmos.

...Some years ago, exploring possible alternative strategies to better manage the threat posed by zoonotic diseases, Kahn co-founded the One Health Initiative – a collaboration between physicians, veterinarians and other health professionals. Member organisations include the American Medical Association, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the US department of Agriculture and the American Nurses Association.

One Health recognises the close linkages between human, animal, and environmental health,” she explains. ...

TODAY IS ONE HEALTH DAY 2017! - November 3, 2017

TODAY IS ONE HEALTH DAY 2017!

One Health Day 2017 events planned by scientists, health practitioners/organizations and students demonstrate a tremendous global interest, need and call for health professionals

to work together across disciplines.

One Health Day https://www.onehealthcommission.org/en/eventscalendar/one_health_day/ is an international campaign launched in November 2016, co-coordinated by the One Health Commission ttps://www.onehealthcommission.org/, the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono Team http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/ and the One Health Platform Foundation https://www.onehealthplatform.com/.

The goal of One Health Day is to bring attention around the world to the need for One Health interactions and for the world to 'see them in action'. The One Health Day campaign is designed to engage as many individuals as possible from as many arenas as possible in One Health education and awareness events, and to generate an inspiring array of projects worldwide.

If you know someone planning and implementing a One Health Day event any time of the year, (only competing student events https://www.onehealthcommission.org/en/eventscalendar/one_health_day/student_competition/ must fall within a certain time frame) please ask them to register their event https://www.onehealthcommission.org/en/eventscalendar/one_health_day/event_submission_form/ (even after the fact) to 'get on the map'. (https://goo.gl/p81doo). We know there are many events being held around the world that are not registered and pinned on the map because we are seeing them discussed on OH Day Facebook and Twitter.
