The OSH FORUM approach
The OSH Forum is based on a transversal and multidisciplinary process driven by a community of experts (public and private operators and researchers), with the objective of identifying impactful operational programmes and pilot actions that can be funded.
With the organisation of transdisciplinary International Working Groups, OHS Forum allows a plurality of actors concerned with global health (researchers, operators, regulators…) to be able to exchange constructively in order to formulate operational recommendations.
One major expected outcome is to mitigate existing “silos” through trans-disciplinary and multi-sectorial discussions and address priorities in the field in a consistent manner. However, such a horizontal approach must preserve a certain verticality, essential for all disciplines, each of which has its own priorities for action and relevance.
Faced with these major challenges, how can we articulate the long-term work of research, preparation, anticipation, prevention and programming with that of the short time imposed by health emergencies and natural disasters?
The OSH Forum approach consists in analysing, among the primary global health issues, the current disciplines and action programs, in order to work on their transversality with the other complementary areas. The development of this approach without boundaries between the public and private sectors, national and international players, can be followed on the OSH Forum website.
The One Sustainable Health Forum is defined as an approach serving all actors contributing to the improvement of Global Health and its strong inclusion in the 2030 Agenda of the 2030 SDGs. It is a project of general interest, abounding in valuable down-to-earth interchange, the main purpose of which is to gather significant recommendations and initiate innovative actions in favour of one sustainable health for all.
