Alliance for Pandemic Preparedness and Response
APAR will aim to act locally while maintaining a global perspective to create holistic ecosystems, building intersectoral and interdisciplinary bridges and linkages among institutions of varying backgrounds to enhance pan-regional health security capacities. APAR will coordinate and collaborate closely with existing global/regional stakeholders (incl. health organizations; nation state ministries, non-governmental partner organizations; medical; veterinary; agricultural and environmental associations; academia; research organizations as well as Industries) adhering to the highest standards of professional integrity, scientific and technical excellence, and global standards in research ethics. APAR will build on lessons learned from organizations that are advancing One Health Security laboratory capacities as well as vaccine and therapeutics innovation globally. Where possible APAR will create synergistic linkages and leverage competencies, services, strategies and operational frameworks, including mechanisms established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).
