The National Institute for Animal Agriculture focuses on health

One Health: Implications for Animal Agriculture was the theme of the 2010 annual meeting of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture on March 15-17 in Kansas City, Missouri.

“One Health is a worldwide initiative focused on the interdependencies of human, animal and ecosystem health, and with this concept comes significantly expanded roles and expectations placed on animal agriculture and professionals within animal agriculture,” says Dr. Tony Forshey, co-chairman of NIAA’s Annual Meeting. “The general sessions and committee meetings explored how the initiative may impact the various species and segments within production animal agriculture and animal health management.”

NIAA’s opening general session speakers looked at how the One Health initiative and strategies shifted the focus from surveillance to intervention and prevention, and how challenges need to be faced collectively rather than in individual silos and disciplines.

The speakers were active members on the One Health Commission, representatives from the veterinary and human health community and representatives of animal agriculture.

NIAA’s 11 species- and issue-based committees, which are open to NIAA members and nonmembers, met March 16-17.

Issue-based committee meetings included animal care, animal health emergency management, animal health and international trade, animal production food safety and security, emerging diseases, and animal identification and information systems.

Species-based committees included cattle, swine, poultry, equine, and sheep and goat. Each committee meeting featured its own speakers.
