Two years ago, world leaders gathered in Stone Mountain, Georgia to operationalize the One Health concept. One Health was born of the notion that animal health, human health, and ecosystem health are all interconnected. By developing capacities to work within that global network, proponents of One Health hoped that they could forestall the next great pandemic. As we now know, they could not. This paper, however, argues that the fundamentals of One Health are sound and the paradigm should be more fully embraced. In particular, the paper examines how FDA uses One Health and how it could expand its use to better prepare to avoid another pandemic.
