“This is One Health’s year of recognition, with the World Bank's latest fund for pandemic response… But what about more and sustained action?"....

"The international community has expressed multiple supportive policy statements and engaged in many conferences; there is vocal and growing support from the scientific community; and substantial new funding, as in the case of the FIF, either exists, is pledged, or is under discussion…..These are all hopeful signs that momentum for the One Health approach is growing in academic, technical, and financial circles, and that low and middle-income country acceptance is increasing – each a necessary condition to transit to large-scale concrete actions. …..But this will only be a reality if the One Health approach is embraced as a core and sustained component of international and national cooperation, coupled with local and external investment.”
