Presentation Session
May 20th, 2021 from 14:00 to 16:00 (CEST)
Online

The current pandemic confirms the need for a new approach to health. The Covid-19 pandemic has outlined our human, institutional and environmental weaknesses, as well as pathways to increase resilience. It has shown that we are inadequately prepared against the emergence of infectious diseases that can only be contained through an integrated, equitable and global health approach. Accurately addressing health challenges requires considering the continuum between environment, animal and human health (One Health concept), without borders (Global Health concept), and regardless of wealth and cultural disparities (equal access). A holistic, multidisciplinary and multisector approach to human health is required, aligned with global values that foster equal access to all. Today, a "One Sustainable Health" (OSH) approach, encompassing both "One Health" and "Global Health" concepts as well as equal and universal access to healthcare, is essential to transform the goal of sustainable health for all into a reality. Many communities, associations, foundations, researchers and patients, innovative entrepreneurs and governments have converged in that direction. We are all concerned by the evolution towards universal sustainable health. How to organise an OSH approach which can involve the different key players in health while ensuring their diversity and complementarity? On October 26th, 2020 at the French embassy in Berlin, a pledge was signed for the cooperative development of the OSH Initiative. This will be a Forum between all stakeholders in order to facilitate the operational implementation of the One Sustainable Health approach through innovative projects.

Join us on May 20th, 2021 from 14:00 to 16:00 (CEST), for the first OSH Forum conference "What programmes to develop the One Health approach?"

During this free and virtual event, you will have the opportunity to follow presentations from existing One Health and Planetary Health projects, including presentations from researchers from the Institute of Global Health of the University of Geneva. Innovative topics for the OSH Forum International Working Groups will then be presented.

Simultaneous interpretation of the conference will be available in French and English.
