One Health Strategic Action Plans - One Health Commission

One Health Strategic Action Plans


Many national and subnational governments, government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and intergovernmental organizations have recognized the need for a One Health approach. To clarify this evolving policy landscape, the One Health Commission has begun compiling these One Health Strategic Action Plans.

This compilation is a global One Health community effort. Please help us make this webpage a tool for showing colleagues and policymakers how much One Health thinking is being implemented globally. Please contact us with any suggestions for additions or modifications at
