One Health Symposium - 2010

Summary

A symposium was organised in Antwerp on 5 November 2010 to evaluate the needs and relevance of intersectoral collaboration in low-resource societies and to make recommendations in regards to the way forward. The aim of the symposium was to present the "One Health" concept as an opportunity to improve human health and well-being through an integrated management of health in humans, domestic and wild animals. The issue of disease prioritisation and impact quantification, the difficulty to reconcile impact on human and animal health and the need to provide decision makers with disease impact evidence were discussed. Finally, examples of intersectoral collaboration successes and failures were presented and analysed, and ways to improve intersectoral collaboration were suggested.
