2016. C Frazzoli, A Mantovani, R Esposito. Sustainable food safety and toxicant zoonoses: new prevention challenges in global health governance. Quadernidella Società Italiana di Medicina Tropicale e Salute Globale, 1: 117-127.
The concept of Sustainable Food Safety promotes the today’s safety of foods and nutritional quality of diet within the sustainable development paradigm, i.e. without compromising the ability of the future generation to meet its ownright to health. The paper discusses aspects of sustainable development introduced by novel (toxicant) zoonoses,such as (mother-to-child) transgenerational diet and challenges of healthy adulthood at birth. Healthprevention/promotion in socioecological systems is considered as (glocal) methodological approach of research andanalysis combining local aspects and priorities with complex health systems dynamics in a global health (GH) setting.Relevant and new global health governance (GHG) mechanisms implying trans-disciplinary, multi-dimension, multi-sector and multi-actors approaches are considered, also including transboundary harmonization and involvement ofhealth and non-health sectors. The paper suggests the implementation of One Health (OH) strategies based on the contribution of all disciplines dealing with human and animal health, foods and the environment to share living resources and meet health challenges for present andfuture generations. In fact, governance and concepts as GHG, GH and OH are strongly related because embedded within the present globalization process.
