  16. 16. GRF One Health Summit 2012One Health – One Planet – OneFuture Added value of a19-23 February 2012, Davos OHGN webportal • Unifying the one health community through a single portal that brings together the wealth of One Health information available on multiple websites but often too scattered to find quickly. • Global and holistic dimension. • No ownership; ownership of all; rotating contributions.
  17. 17. OH Governance: StoneGRF One Health Summit 2012One Health – One Planet – OneFuture19-23 February 2012, Davos Mountain May 2010  One Health should not be “possessed” or “mastered”  One Health should remain flexible and comprehensive  One Health can be promoted by various institutions, but should not be institutionalized  One Health Global Network can facilitate this processAdapted from Dr Carol Rubin
  18. 18. OH Governance: Atlanta GRF One Health Summit 2012 One Health – One Planet – One Future 19-23 February 2012, Davos Nov 20111. Broad international consensus that One Health is a public good, cannot be owned, and should remain flexible, based on a global pool of expertise that crosses disciplines and countries.2. There are a number of One Health events, initiatives and programs worldwide. But the absence of coordination can lead to a dissonance and the existence of out-dated information, and thereby weaken the One Health movement.3. The Atlanta meeting worked hard to identify the most adequate vision of the governance of the One Health movement, globally and regionally, that would ensure coherence and consistency, and to develop an implementation roadmap for that vision, with actions, timelines and accountabilities.
  19. 19. OH Governance:GRF One Health Summit 2012One Health – One Planet – OneFuture19-23 February 2012, Davos Atlanta Nov 2011 4. “Right” governance will provide consistency, cohesion, and an overarching sense of coherence. 5. Not an institution or secretariat; rather, it is “small ‘g’ governance,” that aims to foster and champion the concepts and goals of One Health, and to act as facilitator and enabler. It based on an informally shared leadership. 6. In this particular case, the word “governance” is not the most suitable. It was suggested that “One Health Global Guidance Group (3G)” be used.
