ABOUT THE EVENT
Governments are currently negotiating an historic global pandemic treaty to protect us from future pandemics. Last year’s special World Health Assembly agreed that the new accord will focus on early detection and prevention of pandemics, as well as the “One Health” approach (which recognises the links between human, environmental and animal health).
In this session, experts from civil society and multilaterals will discuss why robust animal health systems are critical to putting One Health into practice and reduce the risk of zoonoses spilling over to people. At this event, you'll find out why stronger animal health systems are key to preventing another pandemic. You'll also hear recommendations and learning for ensuring that animal health is part of the pandemic treaty. Please join us to ensure that any new pandemic treaty considers steps to strengthen animal health systems to prevent another pandemic.
