This virtual meeting will examine ways to systemize and integrate the One Health approach as part of outbreak prevention, detection, preparedness, and response efforts. The workshop will explore research opportunities, multi-sectoral collaboration mechanisms, community engagement strategies, educational opportunities, and policies that can effectively implement the core capacities and interventions of One Health principles to strengthen national health systems and enhance global health security.
