  • T alk about contribution of iAR – AAD C hief among which are food borne disease & zoonoses
  • Establishment CGIAR
  • CRP 4 Agriculture for improved human nutrition and health Livestock potent for good & evil
  • Times of great change
  • I am a researcher – the experiment D egraded wildlife The way animal protein will be produced will change profoundly. Industrial type of production will grow much faster than land-based production. Grazing systems face important resource constraints. Mixed farming, too, cannot expand at the pace of demand for animal products. This trend is uniform throughout the major regions of the developing world, but particularly pronounced where the demand for animal products is growing fastest.
  • Role of agricultural research Importance of AAD and importance beyond the human health sector – including wildlife
  • How poor a guide is common sense
  • P icture, from Peter Roeder, is a girl bringing her pet chicken to be culled Research came late to the party and like the wicked fairy brought only bad news – biosecurity and vaccination in backyard sector unlikely to work, many negative impacts were driven by control and poorly managed consumer panic Successful control
  • Compelling logic that when diseases main reservoir is livestock or wildlife, can be best tackled at source. However from hypothesis to practice is a considerable gap
  • International agricultural research and agricultural associated diseases

    10. 10. Risks of One Health Creating new structures easier than de-commissioning old: leading to overlapping mandates and inefficiency Projectisation – projects have been a successful structure for promoting OH but may lack sustainability Getting ahead of the evidence-base: little information on CB/CE of OH versus conventional (and perhaps evidence comes from atypical cases) Ignoring the costs and barriers – OH requires considerable change & investment in change 10
    11. 11. Added value of One Health Increasing participation and relevance by greater inclusiveness Improving delivery through sharing information and resources Promoting innovation, by bringing together people from different organisations and backgrounds Improving cost effectiveness, through identification of cross over and realising economies of scale Increasing client satisfaction through greater responsiveness to clients 11
