Final report of the Second European One Health Conference, Bucharest, Romania, 2019

Worldwide, the remarkable progress of healthcare coupled with better living conditions are continually leading to the increase in human life expectancy almost everywhere. In contrast with this positive development, human health disorders are increasing in volume, they are diversifying and they are becoming more and more challenging to health.

More and more diseases with uncontrolled developments and super-adaptable bacteria resistant to antibiotics are determined by:

  • accelerated climate change;
  • population movements as a result of globalization and military conflicts,
  • population growth, insufficient precaution in using some harmful technologies;
  • unhealthy diet and excessive medication.

It goes without saying that the costs and efforts to preserve an appropriate health condition are continually increasing and consuming huge resources, hard to sustain.
