One Health: The vital role of the animal health sector to tackle health threats at the animal-human-environment interface

The animal health sector has a vital role to play in tackling these global challenges. In this regard, the leadership of Veterinary Services and other animal health authorities is essential to protect global health.

The World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) advocates for multisectoral partnerships to develop successful interventions to prevent, prepare for and respond to these health threats. The Organisation is calling for increased investment to enable Veterinary Services to scale up an under-resourced workforce and ensure effective implementation of One Health policies and strategies within the animal health sector.
