The latest resilience news from around the world

Four global organizations have jointly launched ‘One Health’ to create a framework to integrate systems and capacity to better prevent, predict, detect, and respond to emerging health threats; and to ultimately nip future pandemics in the bud.

The four organizations are the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH).

The One Health Joint Plan of Action provides a set of activities that aim to strengthen collaboration, communication, capacity building, and coordination equally across all sectors responsible for addressing health concerns at the human-animal-plant-environment interface.

The five-year plan (2022-2026) focuses on supporting and expanding capacities in six areas: capacities for health systems; emerging and re-emerging zoonotic epidemics; endemic zoonotic, neglected tropical and vector-borne diseases; food safety risks; antimicrobial resistance and the environment.
