    Influenza and other zoonotic diseases at the human-animal interface
    FAO/OIE/WHO Joint Scientific Consultation, 27-29 April 2010, Verona (Italy)
    2011
    Also available in:

    Given the complexity of zoonotic disease emergence in an increasingly globalized world, effective strategies for reducing future threats must be identified. Lessons learned from past experiences controlling diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), and pandemic (H1N1) 2009, indicate that new paradigms are needed for early detection, prevention, and control to reduce persistent global threats from influenza and other emerging zoonotic dis eases. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and the World Health Organization (WHO), in collaboration with the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe) organised a joint scientific consultation in Verona, Italy (27-29 April 2010) entitled “FAO-OIE-WHO Joint Scientific Consultation on Influenza and Other Emerging Zoonotic Diseases at the Human-Animal Interface". This document is a summary of the consu ltation. It provides examples of emerged or emerging zoonotic viral diseases. It describes commonalities across diseases and ideas for new approaches and suggests steps towards translating meeting outcomes into policy.

    In an effort to support beekeepers in the sustainable production of good quality beehive products, FAO TECA platform, Apimondia (International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations), Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale del Lazio e della Toscana (IZSLT) “M. Aleandri”, Rome, Italy, and the BPractices project, have worked together, with the support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ Animal Health Service, to develop and publish on TECA, a set of 11 “TECA technologies” on the main bee diseases and bee health. The information sheets are designed following the TECA standards, to help beekeepers, and those providing advisory services to the beekeepers, correctly identify honey bee diseases, apply the correct treatment and to prevent them. The TECA thematic catalogue "Good beekeeping practices: Main bee diseases" groups the 11 practices together in a printed document for distribution among potential users and partners of TECA.

    The study shows the results of an on-line international survey elaborated as a risk assessment tool concerning the use of antimicrobials and the awareness on antimicrobial resistance among beekeepers. The survey was conducted in collaboration between the Animal Production and Health Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), Appalachian State University (CARE) and the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale del Lazio e della Toscana (IZSLT). The survey was disseminated for a period of 12 months in ten languages at the global level through the Technologies and Practices for small agricultural producers (TECA) Platform of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Association (Apimondia).
