    One Health Joint Plan of Action, 2022–2026
    Working together for the health of humans, animals, plants and the environment
    2022
    The Quadripartite Organizations – the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE), and the World Health Organization (WHO) – collaborate to drive the change and transformation required to mitigate the impact of current and future health challenges at the human–animal– plant–environment interface at global, regional and country level. Responding to international requests to prevent future pandemics and to promote health sustainably through the One Health approach, the Quadripartite has developed the One Health Joint Plan of Action (2022–2026) (OH JPA). The OH JPA outlines the commitment of the four organizations to collectively advocate and support the implementation of One Health. It builds on, complements and adds value to existing global and regional One Health and coordination initiatives aimed at strengthening capacity to address complex multidimensional health risks with more resilient health systems at global, regional and national level.

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been recognized as one of the greatest global threats to humans, animals, plants and ecosystems health threatening the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. In our globally connected world, resistance to antimicrobials may spread and circulate among humans, animals, plants and the environment, necessitating a “One Health” approach. While the One Health approach is relevant to all efforts to prevent and control AMR, this priority research agenda focuses on research areas at the interface between sectors. This research agenda is a joint product of the Quadripartite organizations –FAO, UNEP, WHO and WOAH - and a result of extensive stakeholder and expert engagement. A structured mixed-methods approach was used including reviews of academic and grey literature, online open global survey, and consensus exercise by modified Delphi method in which global experts prioritized research areas for the five pillars: transmission, integrated surveillance, interventions, behavioral insights and change, and economics and policy. We hope this research agenda will serve as a guiding tool for countries, research institutes and funding bodies to support for One Health AMR research, helping policymakers, researchers and the multidisciplinary scientific community to work together across sectors on solutions that will prevent and mitigate AMR on a national, regional and global scale as further evidence on research strategies, interventions and policies is required to understand what works, in which contexts and for whom.

    One Health Intelligence for Global Health Security - GCP/GLO/1023/UK 2023
    Also available in:

    Global health security is under increasing threat from emerging infectious diseases and the impacts of environmental change. Intelligence systems must be able to predict, prevent and reduce the risk of ongoing and emerging threats by using an integrated “One Health” (OH) approach to optimize the health of humans, animals, plants and ecosystems. Strengthening global OH intelligence will support the identification and mitigation of risks to global health security. In June 2021, the Group of Seven requested that the Quadripartite alliance of FAO, UNEP, WHO and WOAH (founded as the Office International des Epizooties [OIE]) conduct a One Health Intelligence Scoping Study (OHISS) “to identify potential opportunities for improved technical harmonization of their and other prioritized systems to strengthen One Health intelligence”. The OHISS was coordinated by FAO, as the lead agency for the project.
