One Health Initiative: WMA and WVA

At the World Medical Association (WMA) General Assembly meeting in Bangkok last month the WMA and World Veterinary Association (WVA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to "...collaborate in the One-Health Initiative which is a unified approach to veterinary and human medicine (veterinarians and physicians) in order to improve Global Health". 

The One Health Initiative is a movement to forge co-equal, all-inclusive collaborations between physicians, osteopaths, veterinarians dentists, nurses and other scientific-health and environmentally related disciplines.

Vets and Physicians Find Research Parallels

Vets and Physicians Find Research Parallels

"Three times in the last two months, researchers from St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in Manhattan headed across town to the Animal Medical Center to look at dogs.

Doctors at the hospital’s Vascular Birthmark Institute were enticed by the chance to study anomalies of the arteries and veins that are rare in humans but common in dogs. And the traffic between human and animal hospitals flows in the other direction, too: Late last month, veterinarians from the Animal Medical Center began meeting with their counterparts at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to set up trials of a noninvasive device for removing tumors of the urinary tract with electrical impulses.

Exchanges of this sort are becoming increasingly common. Once a narrow trail traveled by a few hardy pioneers, the road connecting veterinary colleges and human medical institutions has become a busy thoroughfare over the last five years or so, with a steady flow of researchers representing a wide variety of medical disciplines on both sides."

Point/ Counterpoint: Evolutionary Biology - The Scientific Basis for One Health & an Essential Part of Biomedical Education

"The One Health Initiative, a concept spearheaded by the AVMA and the AMA, was designed to acknowledge the commonality of and foster cooperation between medical professions. Since its initiation in 2007, the One Health Initiative has been endorsed by numerous medical, veterinary, and public health associations and their prominent professionals.1 Its principles and objectives are sound, practical, and largely noncontroversial. 

Notably lacking, however, has been a discussion of evolution as its principle underlying scientific basis. Acknowledging and embracing that concept is essential if the philosophy and objectives of One Health are to be realized. Training in evolutionary biology must be part of the education of every veterinarian, physician, and biologist."
