Preventing Pandemics Together - Nature4Health Applications Now Welcome
The Nature for Health (N4H) initiative is currently inviting low-and middle-income countries to apply for technical support in implementing preventative One Health measures around the world.
N4H is a global initiative, working to reduce future pandemics and related health risks by fostering locally developed and integrated approaches to secure the health of people, animals, and the environment at large.
Supported by the Government of Germany, the initiative brings together leading UN agencies, Intergovernmental Organizations and civil society groups in the field of environment and health.
The N4H is currently looking for country partners to implement preventative measures with the technical support of the N4H Consortium. The consortium will support interested, eligible countries/ jurisdictions (including sub-national or regional entities) in implementing One Health approaches.
If selected, countries will receive technical support which will lead to an improved understanding of the links between biodiversity, climate and health. Based on this understanding, the N4H initiative will support the collaborative development of locally relevant and cross-sectorally integrated policies and actions, which will help strengthen effective and lasting multi-sectoral governance structures which will contribute to preventing future pandemics.
Expression of Interest (EOI) for the first round of applications to become a partner jurisdiction of Nature for Health (N4H) Initiative can be submitted until the 21 October 2022.
