The vision of the OHP is to improve public health outcomes across the human, animal, and environment interface. Its mission is to effectively coordinate a “One Health” approach ensuring multi-sector partnership, participation, resource mobilization, accountability, and transparency at all levels. This will be achieved in line with the following values:
The governing framework of the One Health Coordination consists of the Steering Committee, which is the highest governing body, the Technical Committee, the Technical Working Groups, and the One Health Secretariat at the national level. At the subnational level are the Steering Committee, Technical Working Groups, and the One Health Secretariat.
The OHP membership includes a multisectoral body known as the One Health Platform (OHP) with three layers: (1) Steering Committee, with the Minister of Health as its Chairperson; (2) Technical Committee, with the Director General of the National Public Health Institute of Liberia as its Chairperson; (3) Technical Working Groups, rotationally chaired by subject matter experts from key line ministries and agencies (see Figure 1 of the 2nd edition of the One Health Governance Manual). The One Health Coordinator and the One Health Secretariat serve as an overall liaison across all three layers. (Annex 3: National One Health Platform TOR).
