    This document sets a strategic direction for FAO-OIE-WHO to take together and proposes a long term basis for international collaboration aimed at coordinating global activities to address health risks at the human-animal-ecosystems interfaces. FAO, OIE and WHO have been working together for years to address risks at the human-animal-ecosystems interface and their collaborative work was formally laid down in 2010 in the FAO/ OIE/WHO Tripartite Concept Note. This Note continues to be a reference f or the Tripartite on the shared responsibilities for addressing health risks through multi-sectoral collaboration. The Tripartite is advocating for effective, multi-sectoral collaboration at the local, national, regional and global levels and is providing guidance on complex issues. This “One Health” approach recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment.

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have established a Tripartite secretariat to streamline activities under the One Health umbrella. Three One Health priority areas have been identified: zoonotic influenza, rabies and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Within the Asia/Pacific region the Tripartite links-up the FAO Reginal Office for Asia and the Pacific (FAO-RAP) in Bangkok, the OIE Regional office in Tokyo, the OIE subregional office for South East Asian countries in Bangkok, the WHO South-East Asia Regional Office (WHO-SEARO) in New Delhi and the WHO Western Pacific Office (WHO-WPRO) in Manila. Face to face and teleconference meetings have been taking place from time to time to coordinate activities. Recently through USAID funding the establishment of a more permanent Tripartite secretariat at FAO-RAP has been made possible with a special focus on addressing AMR in the Asia/Pacific region. In the side-line of the Prince Mahidol Award Conference to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 29 January to 3 February 2018 a face to face Tripartite coordination meeting will take place on 29 January 2018.

    In November 2022, the Programme Committee endorsed the Office of Evaluation (OED)’s work plan of evaluations 2022–2025, which included an evaluation of FAO’s Programme Priority Area on One Health (Better Production 3). This Programme Priority Area (Better Production 3), created under the Strategic Framework 2022–2031 has its roots in FAO’s decades-long work on issues related to One Health.In April 2010, FAO authored A Tripartite Concept Note, together with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, former OIE), on “Sharing responsibilities and coordinating global activities to address health risks at the animalhuman- ecosystems interfaces”, and thus creating the Tripartite on One Health. In 2021, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) joined and expanded the international collaboration into the Quadripartite. In May 2021, the One Health High-Level Expert Panel (OHHLEP) was launched to provide the Quadripartite with evidencebased scientific and policy advice to address the challenges raised at the animal-human-environment interface using the One Health approach.
