Nature for Health Multi-Partner Trust Fund

Environmental and animal health are key determinants of human health, yet the underlying thinking of this “One Health” approach has not yet been mainstreamed in public health. The project tackles this gap and makes a contribution to a global understanding of “One Health” and for an effective, integrated implementation of the approach, specifically with the prevention of future pandemics in mind. The project supports building an evidence-base matched with action on the ground to mitigate risks and prevent zoonotic risks. The project will conduct “One Health fitness” policy assessments and provide cross-sector policy (e.g. environmental, health, land use, etc.) guidance for the creation and implementation of “One Health” approaches. These results will be achieved through partnerships on international, regional, national and local levels, and through inclusive co-creation processes involving key stakeholders.
