This is the set goal of the Alianza One Health Selva Maya. The initiative serves as a regional dialogue platform for One Health in Guatemala, Mexico and Belize, which means that it’s been used as a communication channel for different stakeholders, and it’s a tool to facilitate engagement, interaction and the adoption of appropriate prevention and rapid response measures. The focus is on those who put the One Health Approach into practice, be it at academic, research, community or policy level. The Alianza works to go beyond the rhetoric. Therefore, different tools and set ups on the Alianza’s website enable broad participation: You’ll find a discussion forum, an event calendar, working groups, as well as a scientific platform. The already existing working groups are self-managed by members and have different thematic focus, e.g. Water, Air and Soil, Zoonotic and Vector Diseases, Wildlife Health, Academics and research, Monitoring and Surveillance and Local and indigenous knowledge.
