Established by the President of the Royal Society of Canada in April 2020, the RSC Task Force on COVID-19 was mandated to provide evidence-informed perspectives on major societal challenges in response to and recovery from COVID-19. The Task Force established a series of Working Groups to rapidly develop Policy Briefings, with the objective of supporting policy makers with evidence to inform their decisions.

Shortcomings in local, national, and global governance are recognized as key drivers of the emergence and re-emergence of diseases of animal origin, the devastating impacts of which have been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this policy brief, we explain the pivotal role that an equity-oriented One Health (OH) approach can play in pandemic prevention and preparedness. We recommend that the OH approach be integrated into the prospective pandemic treaty, and we articulate how, by harnessing multisectoral coordination mechanisms (MCMs), a OH-informed pandemic treaty can complement and enhance connectivity among existing international agreements; advance pandemic prevention and preparedness, as well as human, animal, and environmental health more broadly; and generate significant cost-savings.

On May 25, 2021, the World Health Assembly (WHA) of the
World Health Organization (WHO) called for a Special Session
to be convened in late November to consider developing a
convention, agreement, or other international instrument on
pandemic preparedness and response. On September 8-9, the
O’Neill Institute and FNIH convened 30 of the world’s leading
authorities on global health law, financing, biomedical science,
implementation, and emergency response along with leaders from
prominent international organizations involved in defeating the
pandemic.
