One Health is a collaborative, multidisciplinary, and multisectoral approach that can be used to address health threats at the human-animal-environment interface. The OIE supports its Members to establish a multisectoral, One Health coordination mechanism (MCM) for zoonotic diseases in collaboration with FAO and WHO.
One Health is an integrated approach in preventing and mitigating health threats at the animal-human-plant-ecosystem interfaces in order to achieve public health, food and nutrition security, sustainable ecosystems and fair trade facilitation. It seeks to design and implement programmes, policies, legislative and research in which multiple sectors communicate and coordinate to achieve better public health outcomes.
The Asia Pacific Tripartite (Regional Tripartite) has been operational and works under One Health in fighting health risks at the animal-human-plant-ecosystem interface, focusing in particular on AMR, rabies and zoonotic influenza, through promoting cross-sectoral collaboration. The Asia Pacific Tripartite comprises the regional offices of three international organisations which work jointly to promote cross-sectoral collaboration: the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The Regional Tripartite partners have strengthened multisectoral collaboration in Asia and the Pacific region through jointly organising regular regional workshops since 2010.
