A One Health approach for improved food safety, food security and sustainable food systems was explored by the 4th Global Conference of the Sustainable Food System Programme (SFSP) of the One Planet Network on 26 April 2023.

About 40 delegates from 15 countries came to visit the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI)-led One Health field site in Thai Nguyen Province, north of Vietnam.

SFSP is a multi-stakeholder partnership which aims to accelerate the transformation towards sustainable consumption and production patterns in all areas related to food, with a special focus on promoting a holistic food systems approach in policy making.

Thai Nguyen Province was selected as one of the five learning journeys for the delegates, to raise awareness on the One Health approach as an important tool to improve human well-being through reduction of diseases in humans, animals and the environment.
