Volume 24(4), Winter 2014
This time in EJCAP Online:
Reducing the emergence of multiresistant microorganisms requires coordinated action, both in veterinary and human medicine: a true One Health approach, focused on prudent antimicrobial use and control of infectious and multiresistant bacteria. Both veterinary and human medical use of antimicrobial agents generates resistant organisms and there is increasing evidence of transfer of resistance genes and resistant bacteria in both directions between humans and animals. Companion animal practice provides a special environment in which such transfer readily occurs as a consequence of close interaction between animals, their owners and veterinary staff.
On 13 October, a One Health conference was organised in London by the Bella Moss Foundation, in collaboration with the Royal Society of Medicine. It aimed to bring together leading authorities in human and veterinary medicine, to describe current policies, to analyse how effective they are and to identify areas where improvement is required.
I hope this issue, which contains some of the highlights of the Conference, contributes to a better understanding of this highly important issue.
