Chatham House, London

Centre on Global Health Security

Overview

In light of growing understanding and awareness of the interactions between the livestock industry and the environment, and how it relates to poverty reduction and nutritional well-being in both industrialized and developing countries, the Centre on Global Health Security is convening representatives from the World Health Organization, UN Food and Agricultural Organization, World Organisation for Animal Health, the World Bank and leading private sector groups and academic institutions to discuss the role of livestock in poverty reduction, sustainable livestock production, the value of a World One Health day for humans and animals, and innovation in vaccines and diagnostics.

The discussion will also focus on the concept of establishing national and regional centres of excellence that would provide expert One Health advice on agriculture, sustainable livestock and the links to human development.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
