One Health is an integrated approach for preventing and mitigating health threats at the animal-human-ecosystem interfaces, with the objective of achieving public health, food, and nutrition security, sustainable ecosystems, and fair-trade facilitation.
The 9th Asia-Pacific Workshop on Multisectoral Collaboration at the Animal-Human-Ecosystem interface will consider the future aims of One Health and how to expand One Health engagement across all sectors in the Asia and Pacific region. Particularly considered will be the natural resource management, biodiversity, and environment sectors.
The workshop will also provide an opportunity to reflect on achievements made, as well as lessons learned to progress multi-sectoral collaboration in addressing zoonosis (diseases transmitted between animals and humans) and other health threats at the country and regional levels, since the inception of the regional workshop in 2010.
This effort is led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
