As a result of several One Health meetings focused on improving governmental policy and providing guidance for countries to reduce the risk of infectious diseases, the Stone Mountain Meeting (SMM) convened 54 leaders in May 2010 to develop specific action plans for operationalizing the goals of One Health. SMM Workgroups developed plans for sustainable inter-sectoral collaboration by identifying concrete opportunities for implementing One Health with a consensus vision for the next 3-5 years.
