...references using a “One Health” approach...

By Matt Ross on 16/01/2017

“... In many countries, health officials pushing for tighter controls on the use of drugs in farming would encounter fierce resistance from their colleagues in the agriculture department – but in Canada, Kennedy points out, animal health is regulated by the Food Inspection Agency: an arm of Health Canada. “So the minister of health has a role in both human and animal health,” he observes. “That gives us a bit of an advantage in applying a ‘one health’ approach to the issue of antimicrobials.”

What are the biggest global challenges in your field over the next couple of years?

“Well, there’s a number. One of them is the issue of anti-microbial resistance: the WHO estimates about 480,000 people develop multi-drug-resistant TB each year. This is a really serious emerging problem, and certainly something that in Canada we take very seriously. We have developed an action plan on antimicrobial resistance, looking not just at human health but obviously animal health issues because agriculture is a big part of this. ..."

Special Advisor Minister to Prime Minister of Ethiopia Endorses One Health


On December 30, 2016, Dr. Laura H. Kahn [MD, MPH, MPP], a co-founder of the One Health Initiative team, received a One Health Endorsement letter from Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Minister and Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia.  Dr. Ghebreyesus has been endorsed by the African Union as a candidate for the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO).


Dear colleagues,

In today’s increasingly interconnected world, public health emergencies can affect anyone, anywhere. The development of resilient and robust global and local health systems capable of preventing, detecting and responding to public health emergencies must therefore be a key priority. For these systems to be effective, it is critical to recognize that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment.

The global journey towards a safer and healthier world will be realized if we encourage collaborative efforts of multiple sectors and disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally-to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment.

As a strong believer in the need for everyone to come together for a healthier world, it is my honor to express my support for the One Health Initiative and stand here as a champion of the “One Health” approach at all levels. A one health approach is not only the right thing to do but also it is the smartest investment to address the challenges of infectious
