Local leaders unitedly push for One Health approach By Shobha Bobby (e-pao.net)

June 8, 2022

“… Local leaders hold the power to translate global promises into transformative changes

“We cannot protect human health without considering the impact of human activities that disrupt ecosystems, encroach on habitats, and further drive climate change”, had said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) earlier this year. He had added that, “…to keep people safe, One Health must be translated into local-level systems.”

That is why local leaders from around 80 cities of over a dozen countries in Asia and the Pacific had endorsed a Declaration rooted in One Health approach, at the 6th Asia Pacific Summit of Mayors (6th APCAT Summit) in December 2021, said Professor Tjandra Yoga Aditama, former Director General (Disease Control), Ministry of Health, Indonesia, and former Director (communicable disease control), of the WHO for South-East Asia region.

Dr Andre Furco added: “We cannot anymore work in silos, as these diseases are at the interface of human health, animal health and environment. So we need to work together to be able to better respond to them. One Health approach must be applied at the local level with a whole-of-society approach.” …”

‘To say that it’s all over with COVID-19 would be premature right now’ – The Hindu

June 6, 2022

“… We have to treat our environment and our natural resources with respect and care. The pandemic has taught us that animal to human spillover [of pathogens] is possible and that it can cause devastation that is unprecedented.

India is now working towards setting up a One Health Centre in Nagpur, which should be ready in about two years time. This centre is primarily focused on a holistic approach towards detecting infections, where veterinary and medical scientists will work alongside each other to understand, anticipate and, in the long run, prevent zoonotic spillovers.

One Health is an approach calling for the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and globally, to attain optimal health for people, animals, and our environment. …”

DelVal receives $35,000 grant | The Bucks County Herald [RE: One Health initiative]

June 2, 2022

“ … The project aims at elevating the role of the humanities, particularly English and rhetorical studies, within the One Health initiative. One Health is a multi-disciplinary approach that works on all levels from local to global to attain optimal well-being for people and society, the environment, plants and animals. The grant intends to broadly and intentionally infuse the humanities into the initiative by creating a new minor titled One Health Communications, which hopes to bridge the study of writing and rhetoric with pre-veterinary, pre-health, and science programs; provide professional development workshops for DelVal faculty focused on integrating lessons from the field of Rhetoric into science programs; and bring speakers to campus for the university’s One Health series and Business and Humanities Colloquia. …”

A generalizable one health framework for the control of zoonotic diseases | Scientific Reports (nature.com)

A generalizable one health framework for the control of zoonotic diseases | Scientific Reports (nature.com)

A new publication is available that outlines a Generalizable One Health Framework for using a One Health approach within zoonotic disease programs at the local, sub-national, national, regional, or international level. The framework includes five specific steps and corresponding activities to help users develop capacity to coordinate zoonotic disease programs across sectors and is applicable to common zoonotic diseases in most settings.

Effectively preventing and controlling zoonotic diseases requires a One Health approach that involves collaboration across human health, animal health, and environmental sectors, as well as other partners. This framework provides a structure for using a One Health approach in zoonotic disease programs and can help build capacity for preventing and controlling zoonotic diseases at the local, sub-national, national, regional, or international level.

Tracking coronavirus in animals takes on new urgency – The Washington Post

May 20, 2022

“We really have to highlight the concept of one health. It’s not only about human health. We have to consider health in animals and the environment. And if you don’t look after these areas, we are the one that suffer at the end.”

— Leo Poon, head of the division of public health laboratory science at the University of Hong Kong
