Europe announces new action plan on AMR

European Commission AMR report cover

“European officials today released a new action plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that builds on efforts to address the emergence and spread of drug-resistant pathogens in humans, animals, and the environment.

The plan, released by the European Commission, the body that devises common policies for the European Union (EU), takes a One Health approach, which recognizes that drug resistance effects not only human health, but also the health of animals and the environment.

The plan aims to establish a comprehensive framework to strengthen EU efforts to reduce the spread of AMR in humans and animals, help individual states strengthen their national AMR policies, promote development of new antibiotics and diagnostics, and establish the EU as a global leader in addressing the AMR threat.

"It's not too late to turn the tide on antimicrobial resistance, but we need to make sure that we act now," Andrea Ammon, MD, MPH, director of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), said in a press release. ...”

How Antibiotic overuse in human medicine impacts beef producers

How Antibiotic overuse in human medicine impacts beef producers                                            


“While animal agriculture is the focus of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in people, the human use of antibiotics must be considered as well. Fourth of a six-part series.” ... “... Today, the United States is the third-largest consumer of antibiotics in human medicine in the world, according to Dr. Laura Kahn, a physician and research scholar with Princeton University’s program on science and global security at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Only India and China consume more.

“That’s total use,” Kahn emphasized. “The countries with the highest per capita use of antibiotics, for whatever reason, are Australia and New Zealand.”

One Health Initiative

Kahn is also co-founder of the One Health Initiative.

“One Health is very simply the concept that human, animal and environmental health are linked,” Kahn told participants at last year’s annual convention of the Texas Cattle Feeders Association (TCFA). “And because they are linked, complex subjects such as antimicrobial resistance must be examined in an interdisciplinary way.”

Kahn put that concept to work in research highlighted in her book, “One Health and the Politics of Antimicrobial Resistance.” You’ll hear more about Kahn’s research in a future article in this series.

Suffice it to say, her research dismantles the assumptions European regulators made about the presumed link between antibiotic use in livestock and antibiotic resistance in humans, an assumption that continues to drive antibiotic policy there. ...”

“Insights for One Health from Centuries and Millennia Past”
American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) convention at July 22, 2017
Thursday, June 22, 2017.

Insights for One Health from Centuries and Millennia Past” -  Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana July 22, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. 

Saturday morning American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) convention at July 22, 2017 Keynote Brunch 10 a.m. at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Paul Sereno

Keynote speaker Paul Sereno will bring the past to life at AVMA Convention 2017

Attendees at AVMA Convention 2017 will have the opportunity to join renowned paleontologist Paul Sereno at AVMA Convention 2017 for a keynote presentation exploring how the history of the animal world relates to modern veterinary medicine. His keynote brunch address, “Insights for One Health from Centuries and Millennia Past,” promises to bring a modern angle to ancient history.

New developments in genetics, ancient DNA, fossil discoveries, and research into human development are changing our perspective on what actually happened in the past. From human-animal health crises to the timing of evolutionary changes, Sereno will bring ancient history alive to inform our current veterinary work.

Paul Sereno is a National Geographic Explorer and internationally acclaimed professor at the University of Chicago who has explored the Sahara and Gobi Deserts, India’s Thar Desert and remote valleys in Tibet. His work is an exciting blend of art, history and science wrapped in adventure, and we’re excited that he has agreed to give this keynote presentation at AVMA Convention 2017.

The keynote brunch will take place on Saturday, July 22, at 10 A.M., and is open to full convention registrants including veterinarians, technicians, practice staff and students. Guests and exhibitors are invited to attend a viewing party in an alternate location.

Interested in attending AVMA Convention 2017? You can learn more about convention events and CE highlights, and book your hotel room now, at Registration will open in February, so Follow AVMA Convention on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates.

Humans face a grand quality-of-life challenge as growing demands for resources for an ever-expanding population threaten the existence of wildlife populations, degrade land, and pollute air and water. Public investment and policy decisions that will shape future interactions of humans, animals, and the environment need scientific input to help find common ground for durable and sustainable success. The Second International Conference on *One Medicine One Science brought together a broad range of scientists, trainees, regulatory authorities, and health experts from 34 countries to inform and discuss the human impacts of air quality; the complexities of water quality, access, and conflicts; the opportunities and uncertainties in precision medicine; and the role of science communication in health policy formulation. Workshops focused on the roles and development of physician–scientists and multidisciplinary teams in complex problem solving, Big Data tools for analysis and visualization, international policy development processes, and health models that benefit animals and humans. Key realizations were that local and regional health challenges at the interface of humans, animals, and the environment are variations of the same overarching conflicts and that international gatherings provide new opportunities for investigation and policy development that are broadly applicable.

Editor’s note: *The term “One Medicine” is now generally referred to as “One Health” in current vernacular.
