One Health approach to prevent emergence of zoonotic pathogens

In light of the continuing threats to public health posed by the emergence of diseases and new COVID-19 variants, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are looking to strengthen capacities in mainstreaming biodiversity into health frameworks and systems. The ACB and the FAO signed an agreement to strengthen collaboration among ministries of natural resource management, forestry, and wildlife in ASEAN, under the One Health approach, in the broad aim of preventing the spillover and emergence of infectious zoonotic pathogens at the source. More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin.
