The 2nd GRF One Health Summit 2013 has drawn to a close on Wednesday, 20 November 2013.
During the four conference days the 390 international delegates from more than 70 countries had addressed the complex interactions between human health, livestock, pet and wildlife health, environmental health, ecosystems services, climate, water, sanitation, food systems, energy, human development, equity and justice.
The deliberations and discussions have led to the conclusion that One Health as a holistic concept is an essential tool for an effective and efficient handling of health risks. However, the global One Health movement needs to be further developed and strengthened.
