As a stakeholder at the One Health High-Level Expert Panel (OHHLEP), ATP is focused on identifying new solutions to address the risks and impacts in healthcare ecosystems. 

ATP believes that community engagement is critical to promoting risk-reducing habits and attitudes, and to support early detection and containment of health-related issues.

  1. Recognizing the complex nature of public health threats and the need for multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral approaches beyond traditional health agendas
  2. Recognizing the inter-connectivity of issues in human, animal and environmental health that need collective attention from the industry, academia, NGOs, healthcare, government and intergovernmental organizations
  3. Calling on regional and local partnerships as means to identify, commit, and implement innovative solutions
  4. Committing resources to find solutions that are sustainable and accessible.
