ADVANCEMENT IN AGRICULTURAL HEALTHIN THE PREVIOUS 20 YEARS -EXCERPTS FROM IICA DOCUMENTS PREPAREDOR RECEIVED IN 1980-

“Mexico hopes to eliminate all mediterranean fruit flies in their country this year…”

“We should not try to go into those countries (Latin America and the Caribbean) and do the job for them, but help them to help themselves, so that THEY can develop a solid animal health program”

“…I see enormous potential… provided the member nations of the OAS have visionary decision-making authorities who can see the benefit to the economy of their nations …”

ADVANCEMENT IN AGRICULTURAL HEALTH IN THE PREVIOUS 20 YEARS -EXCERPTS OF NEEDS IDENTIFIED 20+ YEARS AGO-
  • “…Adequate budget…”
  • “…Stable infrastructure…”
  • “…Sense of urgency…”
  • “…National and international commitment…”
  • “…Training technical people…”
  • “…On-going program of surveillance…”
  • “…Establish a system of information…”
  • “…Career ladder incentives…”

FOOD SAFETY IS CRITICAL IN MAKING DECISIONS ON WHERE TO TRAVEL

“Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Travelers’ Advisory”

Food and waterborne diseases are the #1 cause of illness in travelers. Travelers’ diarrhea can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites, which are found throughout the region and can contaminate food or water. Infections may cause diarrhea and vomiting (E. coli, Salmonella, cholera, and parasites), fever (typhoid fever and toxoplasmosis), or liver damage (hepatitis). Make sure your food and drinking water are safe.

summary
SUMMARY
  • The world of agricultural health is far different than before.
  • Agricultural health and food safety institutions must adopt a much broader focus.
  • Support organizations (IDB, IICA) must retool to be effective.
