Celebrating our 7th year as a registered charity in 2021, Humanimal Trust launched One Medicine Day on Thursday 6 May which also saw us host the world’s first ever One Medicine Symposium, for those in human and animal medicine to come together to share ideas and areas of challenge, considering how medical collaboration could benefit all humans and all animals.
Creating a step change in many ways, the global pandemic has been an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come in driving One Medicine since those early days, and to consider our focus for the weeks, months and years to come. We report on our achievements every year in our annual report and accounts, however, this is the first time we have produced a historical view of the impact story so far.
The report describes our successes from the first seven years of the charity, as well as the things we could have done better and our targets for the future. In the future we aim to produce an annual impact report alongside our annual review and financial report – with periodic special updates for our supporters. It outlines our strategic aims for each of our five work streams (awareness, collaboration, education, research, influence), our short-term objectives for each, and the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) we use to track our performance.
We are proud of our achievements so far, but we are also aware of the challenges of raising income in difficult times to allow us to do as much as we would like. We are still a young, small, developing charity. We have a firm foundation, a powerful vision and have achieved a great deal thanks to the donations and voluntary support we receive from so many generous and kind people, but there is always more to do than there are funds or people to do it.
