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

 2nd World Veterinary Association/World Medical Association GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON ONE HEALTH


Moving forward from One Health Concept to One Health Approach 10 -11th November 2016

Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan


SEE complete Summary


The 2GCOH resulted in the historic signature on the Memorandum of Fukuoka by WVA, WMA, JMA and JMVA. The 4 associations agreed to move from the validation and recognition stage of the “One Health Concept”, to the practical implementation stage:


i. Physicians and veterinarians shall promote the exchange of information aimed at preventing zoonotic diseases and strengthening cooperative relationships, as well as to undertake further collaboration and cooperation aimed at creating a system for zoonosis research.

ii. Physicians and veterinarians shall strengthen their cooperative relationships to ensure the responsible use of important antimicrobials in human and animal healthcare.

iii. Physicians and veterinarians shall support activities for developing and improving human and veterinary medical education, including understanding the One Health concept and approach to One Health challenges.

iv. Physicians and veterinarians shall promote mutual exchange and strengthen their cooperative relationships in order to resolve all issues related to the creation of a healthy and safe society.


Following the successful 2GCOH, the WVA and WMA received a number of proposals from Veterinary and Medical Associations to hold the 3rd Global Conference on One Health in their countries showing their great interest to enhance the collaborations between the veterinarians and physicians to work together on One Health issues.”

Tick-Borne Diseases in Turkey: A Review Based on One Health Perspective


Citation: Inci A, Yildirim A, Duzlu O, Doganay M, Aksoy S (2016) Tick-Borne Diseases in Turkey: A Review Based on One Health Perspective. PLoS Negl Trop Dis 10(12): e0005021. doi:10.1371/journal.pntd.0005021 Published: December 15, 2016

  • Abstract

    “The importance of tick-borne diseases is increasing all over the world, including Turkey. Global warming, environmental and ecological changes and the existence of suitable habitats increase the impact of ticks and result in frequent emergence or re-emergence of tick-borne diseases (TBDs) with zoonotic characteristics. In Turkey, almost 19 TBDs have been reported in animals and men, involving four protozoa (babesiosis, theileriosis, cytauxzoonosis, hepatozoonosis), one filarial nematode (acanthocheilonemasis), ten bacterial agents (anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, aegyptianellosis, tick-borne typhus, Candidatus Rickettsia vini, Lyme borreliosis, tick-borne relapsing fever [TBRF], tularaemia, bartonellosis, and hemoplasmosis), and four viral infections (tick-borne encephalitis [TBE], Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever [CCHF], louping-ill [LI], and lumpy skin disease [LSD]). The growing number of TBD cases, in particular the fatal viral epidemics in humans, have led to increased public awareness and concern against TBDs in recent years. The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a new political concept, called the “One Health” initiative, which is especially relevant for developing strategies against tick infestations and TBD control in humans and animals. It would be beneficial for Turkey to adopt this new strategy and establish specific research and control programs in coordination with international organizations like WHO, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) to combat TBDs based on the “One Health Initiative” concept. In this article, we review the occurrence of primary TBDs in man and animals in Turkey in light of the “One Health” perspective.”
