Mission Statement

Global 1HN is an interdisciplinary research-to-action network intent on strengthening Canadian leadership in improving the global governance of infectious diseases (IDs) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The Network brings together researchers and knowledge users from the social sciences as well as human, animal, and environmental health sciences to develop a transdisciplinary One Health approach to ID and AMR governance at global, national, and local levels.

The objectives of Global 1HN are to:

  • develop and sustain a Network of local, national and international state and non-state actors to facilitate collaborative interactions among civil society, academics, industry, and policy communities
  • strengthen capacity for inter- and transdisciplinary research on, and the practice of, global governance of IDs and AMR
  • facilitate evidence-informed actions through: synergistic engagement of social and health sciences approaches to OH global governance; identifying and addressing existing barriers to, and enhancing existing and potential enablers of OH governance; and developing a OH evaluation framework
  • facilitate the implementation of a transdisciplinary OH approach to global governance of IDs and AMR through an integrated knowledge translation strategy

Research Enabling Platforms

The research activities proposed under the four Research Enabling Platforms (REPs) of WP3 will bring together social scientists with a focus on governance with human, animal and public health researchers with experience in field application of the OH approach.
