Roadmap to a One Health agenda 2030

Abstract

“The current fragmented framework of health governance for humans, animals and environment, together with the conventional linear approach to solving current health problems, is failing to meet today's health challenges and is proving unsustainable. Advances in healthcare depend increasingly on intensive interventions, technological developments and expensive pharmaceuticals. The disconnect grows between human health, animal health and environmental and ecosystems health. Human development gains have come with often unrecognized negative externalities affecting ecosystems. Deterioration in biodiversity and ecosystem services threatens to reverse the health gains of the last century. A paradigm shift is urgently required to de-sectoralize human, animal, plant and ecosystem health and to take a more integrated approach to health, One Health (OH). The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a framework and unique opportunity for this. Through analysing individual SDGs, we argue the feasibility of an OH approach towards achieving them. Feasibility assessments and outcome evaluations are often constrained by sectoral politics within a national framework, historic possession of expertise, as well as tried and tested metrics. OH calls for a better understanding, acceptance and use of a broader and transdisciplinary set of assessment metrics. Key objectives of OH are presented: that humans reconnect with our natural past and accept our place in, and dependence on our planet's ecosystems; and that we recognize our dependence on ecosystem services, the impact of our development thereon and accept our responsibility towards future generations to address this. Several action points are proposed to meet these objectives.”

One Health in food safety and security education: Subject matter outline for a curricular framework

  • Western Institute for Food Safety and Security, University of California – Davis, 1477 Drew Ave., Suite 101, Davis, CA 95618, United States

    Abstract

    “Educating students in the range of subjects encompassing food safety and security as approached from a One Health perspective requires consideration of a variety of different disciplines and the interrelationships among disciplines. The Western Institute for Food Safety and Security developed a subject matter outline to accompany a previously published One Health in food safety and security curricular framework. The subject matter covered in this outline encompasses a variety of topics and disciplines related to food safety and security including effects of food production on the environment. This subject matter outline should help guide curriculum development and education in One Health in food safety and security and provides useful information for educators, researchers, students, and public policy-makers facing the inherent challenges of maintaining and/or developing safe and secure food supplies without destroying Earth's natural resources.”

Prominent U.S. Tuberculosis Expert and One Health Leader Dies
Dr. Charles O. Thoen, a veterinarian internationally recognized for his extensive knowledge and expertise in the scientific field of tuberculosis and an avid One Health leader/advocate died unexpectedly Monday, 8 May 2017. A fitting in memoriam to him is this pertinent article

Dr. Thoen was a strong ally of the One Health Initiative Autonomous Pro Bono team.


Heterologous prime-boost vaccination with H3N2 influenza viruses of swine favors cross-clade antibody responses and protection

New findings challenge the traditional policy of replacing old strains in existing human influenza vaccines with recent variants with only minimal changes. 

Influenza viruses are constantly changing their hemagglutinin (HA) protein, which is the major component of flu vaccines. Current flu vaccines are only effective against virus strains that match the vaccine strains. Consequently, the strains in the human flu vaccines are updated every few years, based on recommendations by the World Health Organization. The situation is even more complex in swine, because of multiple co-circulating and geographically separated swine flu strains. None of the available swine flu vaccines can protect against all these strains.

Pigs and humans need several doses of killed influenza vaccine in order to provide immunity: a “priming” dose is followed by booster vaccinations with the same or very similar vaccine strains. Kristien Van Reeth, of Belgium’s Ghent University, and collaborators are comparing different vaccines and vaccination strategies in swine, which are used as a model for humans. They obtained promising results by priming and boosting pigs with virus strains with very distinct HA proteins. Read the article in NPJ Vaccines


Scientific colloquium on heterologous prime-boost vaccination, organized by the One Health Platform
You are kindly invited to join other academics, public health professionals and regulatory agency officials at the first colloquium on heterologous prime-boost vaccination in Leuven, Belgium, on 29 September 2017.

More information about the colloquium and a preliminary scientific programme is to be found on our webpages. Registration is free of charge. The number of places, however, is limited and on-line registration is hence necessary.
