“Since 1796, when English physician and scientist Edward Jenner established the efficacy of the very first vaccine after proving that people inoculated with cowpox became immune to smallpox, the link between veterinary medicine and human medicine has been the source of countless breakthroughs. It has inspired treatments for HIV (from the feline FIV), HPV (Human Papillomavirus based on research conducted on cattle), and recently, malaria. History has taught us that in order to overcome our greatest biological threats; we must adopt the 'One Health' approach to knowledge sharing among professionals in the fields of veterinary and human medicine.”
