News : One Health Day

03 November 2016

The 3rd of November marks One Health day, an international campaign co-ordinated by the One Health Commission promoting efforts around the world to bring together all human, animal and environmental health disciplines.

Journal of Medical Microbiology welcomes submissions to its One Health subject category. This section in the journal recognises that the health of humans, animals and ecosystems are interconnected. It supports applying a coordinated, collaborative, and cross-sectoral approach to address potential or existing risks that originate at the animal-human-ecosystems interface.

The One Health section of Journal of Medical Microbiology is overseen by Section Editor Professor Roberto Marcello La Ragione. He states that One Health approaches are important because ‘many emerging infectious disease health issues are linked to increasing contact between humans and animals, intensification and integration of food production and the expansion of international travel’.

The journal invites manuscripts that present novel insight into all aspects of veterinary, medical and comparative microbiology. Aspects of antimicrobial resistance may also fall within the scope of One Health, as use in animals, humans and the environment are frequently interconnected.
