URODELIA is actively involved in the strategy of sharing information between human and veterinary medicine.
The One Health concept is a global strategy to develop interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. This synergy will advance health care in the 21st century and beyond :
- accelerating the discovery of biomedical research,
- improving the effectiveness of public health,
- rapidly expanding the scientific knowledge base
- by improving medical education and clinical care.
Recognizing that human health (including mental health through man-animal linkage), animal health and ecosystem health are inextricably linked, One Health seeks to promote, enhance and defend health and well-being Being of all species by strengthening cooperation and collaboration among physicians, veterinarians, other health and scientific professionals and by promoting the leadership and management forces to achieve these goals.
One Health is dedicated to improving the lives of all species, human and animal, through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine and the environment.
Health must be achieved by:
- Joint education efforts among human doctors, veterinary schools and schools of public health and the environment;
- Joint communication efforts in newspapers, conferences and related health networks;
- Joint efforts in clinical care through assessment, treatment and prevention of disease transmission between species;
- Joint efforts to monitor and combat diseases among species in public health;
- Joint efforts for a better understanding of the transmission of diseases between species through comparative research in medicine and the environment;
- Joint efforts in the development and evaluation of new diagnostic methods, drugs and vaccines for the prevention and control of diseases across species and;
- Joint efforts to inform and educate political leaders and the public sector through accurate media publications
