One Sustainable Health for All Declaration unveiling at the Learning Planet Institute

On December 11, 2023, we presented our environmental, animal and human health experts' recommendations for achieving sustainable health at the Learning Planet Institute in Paris. These recommendations are all published in the One Sustainable Health for All Declaration.

The Covid 19 pandemic has highlighted our human, environmental and institutional weaknesses, and sparked a growing awareness of the continuum that exists between Environmental, Animal and Human Health ("One Health") in a holistic approach without geographical boundaries ("Global Health").

With this in mind, in 2020, the Foundation Une Santé Durable pour Tous, launched the "One Sustainable Health" (OSH) Forum to bring together a diversity of organisations and experts around the "One Health" challenge aligned with the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Over 200 experts from some thirty countries have been involved in a transdisciplinary approach over the past two years, working in six international thematic working groups, and have now submitted operational recommendations aimed at :

  1. Reducing the impact of human pollution and its pressure on biodiversity and the climate
  2. Organize sustainable food systems for better nutrition
  3. Harmonize man's relationship with nature and the wild world
  4. Promoting equitable access to health services
  5. Adapting financial tools to ensure a single health for all
  6. Integrate "One Health" principles and practices into local communities.

These recommendations are based on 4 transversal pillars:

  • Public knowledge of challenges and solutions, using examples that bring together knowledge and field practices in human, animal and global health.
  • The financing of the Sustainable Health approach, which remains strategic to ensure its successful implementation.
  • Scientific data and evidence are clearly identified as essential to ensure an effective understanding of the interrelationships between the multiple factors impacting on sustainable health. They provide the basis for decision-making, risk prioritization and sustainable research funding.
  • Strategy and governance must be optimized to foster local action through public policies that encourage and promote regional, national and international initiatives in favor of sustainable health alone.
