It’s a One Health approach for World Food Safety Day in the Asia and Pacific region


World Food Safety Day in the Asia and Pacific Region will be marked this year by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and World Food Program (WFP) in a joint regional food safety open event.

The 3 June virtual event will focus on the “One Health” approach to food safety, which recognizes the connection between the health of people, animals and the environment and the impact this has on food safety, with an event slogan of “Together we make food safe: One health approach.”

The event, which will be available on Zoom (to those who register), or on YouTube, aims to engage with the public and private sectors as well as with the general public. Listeners will be encouraged to take a “One Health” approach to food safety to ensure that food remains safe all along the food chain, from production to consumption.


3 June 2021 from 11:00 - 12:30 Bangkok time (04:00 GMT).
