As a way to support countries in taking a One Health approach to address zoonotic diseases, the guide: “Taking a Multisectoral, One Health Approach: A Tripartite Guide to Addressing Zoonotic Diseases in Countries” has been jointly developed by the Tripartite organizations (FAO, OIE, and WHO). This Guide, referred to as the Tripartite Zoonotic Guide (TZG) is flexible enough to be used for other health threats at the human-animal-environment interface; for example, food safety and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The TZG provides principles, best practices and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface. Examples and lessons learned from countries experiences are also included.

FAO assesses that globally 40 countries, of which 31 in Africa, continue to be in need of external assistance for food. The impact of conflicts continues to be the main cause of the high level of severe food insecurity. Weather-induced production declines have also negatively impacted food availability.

 
This publication provides reference and general guidance for countries, specifically policy makers and official, to draft and implement policies on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial use (AMU) for food animal production within a One health Approach.
