For instance, in the aftermath of a natural disaster the population affected immediately faces health threats not only from injuries suffered but also epidemics prompted by interruptions in sanitation services. A different Dr Walter Ammann, example is currently shown in Japan, where radiological President GRF Davos contamination as a consequence of a cascading effect led to a nuclear catastrophe and puts thousands of people at risk. Holistically managing such health threats is in line with our „From Thoughts to Action“ multi-measures and multi-stakeholder risk management solution at GRF Davos. One Health – a school of thought by closely linking practice, science, that acknowledges the systemic nature of public health by linking human, animal and environmental factors – policy and decision making in the provides an excellent basis for doing so. I am looking forward to discuss innovative measures search for sustainable solutions. for integrative health risk management at the GRF One Health Summit 2012 with representatives from the health workforce, agriculture, pharmaceutical and food industry, science and policy.
