One Health: Implement the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA)

>>Download activity overview  (English) and (French)

 

HRH2030 One Health builds upon the existing work by USAID and other U.S. government agencies working with Ministries of Health, Agriculture, Environment, and other key One Health stakeholders to build country capacity to implement the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA). A multilateral and multi-sectoral initiative, the GHSA is a global partnership of more than 64 nations working together to help create a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats and elevate global security as a national and global priority.

 

HRH2030 is strengthening the organizational and workforce capacity across multiple sectors for improved prevention, detection, and response to disease threats, with a focus on the zoonotic disease action package. The project works across ministries to help create and improve resilient health systems through health systems strengthening approaches that align with the country’s health and development objectives. This includes helping to accelerate progress towards implementation of the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR) and Joint External Evaluation (JEE) targets, which aim to help countries prevent and respond to acute public health risks that have the potential to cross borders and threaten people worldwide.

 

HRH2030 is working with USAID and the governments of Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, and Tanzania to:

  • Provide technical assistance to the National One Health platform to ensure effective and efficient coordination of health security strategies, policy, and advocacy efforts
  • Provide technical assistance to the One Health Technical Working Groups to develop multisectoral prevention and control strategies, preparedness and response plans, and protocols for priority emerging and reemerging zoonotic diseases
  • Strengthen coordinated integrated surveillance, preparedness, and response system for priority zoonotic diseases
  • Contribute continuously to the Global Health Security Agenda effort
