Current initiatives in One Health: consolidating the One Health Global Network

Author(s) : A. Vandersmissen & S.C. Welburn

Summary :

The Global Response to Avian Influenza has led to a longer-term One Health movement, which addresses risks, including zoonoses, at the human–animal–environment interface, and requires the development of innovative partnerships at the political, institutional and technical levels. One Health is a sustainable and rational option when the cumulative effects of health hazards on food and economic security are considered, but demands long-term financial investment. Projections of growth in the demand for livestock production and consumption in Asia and Africa also call for effective One Health responses. However, an effective response also requires validated evidence of the socio-economic value that the One Health approach can provide. Implementing the One Health approach depends on forging strong links between human and animal health services, the environment and public policy. The authors present a list of some of the national and transnational partnerships established since 2006. Political support, good governance and effective policies and networks are crucial building blocks for One Health sustainability.
