The growing threat of vector-borne disease in humans and animals … Recommendations for optimizing solutions and innovations across all species and all regions http://www.ifahsec.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IFAH-whitepaper-2014-Vectorborne-Diseases.pdf “The One Health concept signifies a collaborative, multidisciplinary and holistic approach, looking at optimising animal, environmental and human health, which are interdependent on each other. Approaches to the control of VBDs in animals can be very different to approaches to VBD in humans, and common ground can be hard to find. However, as ever more people who work in the animal and human health sectors adopt a One Health mindset, piecemeal - but important - progress in collaboration is likely.” The International Federation for Animal Health (IFAH) is the ‘global representative body of companies engaged in research, development, manufacturing and commercialisation of veterinary medicines, vaccines and other animal health products in both developed and developing countries across the five continents’. The paper (independently authored by Oxford Analytica) has been produced with the support of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to promote the better health and welfare of animals for the greater good of both animals and people globally.
