ONE HEALTH CONCEPT: HOW CAN WE COLLABORATE?

ONE HEALTH CONFERENCE 

 

Each year millions of people worldwide die or suffer from illness and conditions that are not attributable to a single cause but instead are the result of a confluence of factors related to water, animals, plants, and the environment that work synergistically to adversely affect human health.  One Health focuses on integrated, holistic interventions that are intended to have a larger impact and be more efficient and cost-effective as a result of reducing overlap among specialists, increasing collaboration and focusing on the root causes of complex problems that threaten life on our planet.  Included in the One Health concept are issues related to food security, poverty, species extinction, gender equity, and health systems/human capacity strengthening to name but a few areas.   

The goals of this ONE HEALTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2017 will be:

–       To integrate expertise drawn from a variety of disciplines, including medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, social sciences, engineering, agricultural and environmental sciences to improve the health of people, animals and the planet;

–       To engage collaboratively with partners around the globe in action-based research and problem-focused interventions aimed at improving and promoting health using the One Health approach and sharing the results;

–       To train and equip a cadre of global One Health leaders, health workers, scientists, and engineers with an approach that values respect, cultural diversity, design-thinking, creativity, and effective communication to promote collaboration and team work to solve local problems

 

Themes we will address in the conference include:

•        Improved science to control SARS, ZIKA, rabies, Brucellosis, and other new or re-emerging zoonotic diseases

•        Health concerns at the wild animal – domestic animal interface

•        Enhanced vector-control and disease-surveillance strategies

•        Improved food safety through water and ecosystem management

•        Promotion of low-cost and sustainable approaches to combat malnutrition, especially among children

•        Poultry health including immunization to improve animal health, reduce the risk of zoonotic diseases, and improve access to eggs and poultry meat for children

•        Use of agricultural biotechnology for improved nutrition and food security
