The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the need for better global governance of pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response (PPR) and has emphasised the importance of organised knowledge production and uptake.
This health policy study assessed the potential values and risks of establishing an Intergovernmental Panel for One Health (IPOH). These identified benefits and risks should be considered when designing institutional reforms for a more effective global health system. Additionally, harnessing the potential flexibility of an IPOH would require mechanisms of collaboration with other science–policy instruments on specific issues.
