support One Health implementation and continue monitor the
implementation of the National Bridging Workshops roadmap and identify
challenges in the operationalization of the collaboration at the
human-animal- environment interface for complying with the International
Health Regulations (IHR, 2005).
health of humans, animals and is environment vitally interlinked. A
majority of emerging and endemic human diseases have their origins in
animals, transmitted directly, through food or via the environment.
Animal-specific diseases can also have indirect implications for human
health through food security and other impacts on livelihood. There is
therefore a shared responsibility and synergic potential for
collaboration between public and animal health sectors to deal with
zoonotic diseases and other threats at the animal-human interface.
Member States adopted the International Health Regulations (IHR, 2005),
for the prevention and control of events that may constitute a public
health emergency of international concern. The IHR Monitoring and
Evaluation Framework (MEF) has been developed to assist countries in
strengthening minimum national core public health capacities to detect,
assess, notify, and respond to such threats under the IHR.
World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH founded as OIE) is the
international Organisation responsible for developing standards,
guidelines, and recommendations for animal health and zoonoses. WOAH’s
Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS) Pathway is a range of tools to
assist countries in the evaluation and strengthening of the capacities
of their veterinary services.
The joint use of WHO IHRMEF tools
and WOAH PVS Pathway can result in better alignment of capacity-building
approaches and strategies between human and animal health services of a
country. For this purpose, the IHR-PVS National Bridging Workshops
(NBW) was developed. An NBW is a three-day event that enables the animal
health sector, the human health sector, and other sectors including the
environmental sector, etc. in countries to come together and improve
collaboration. This very interactive workshop employs user-friendly
materials, simulation scenarios, and group exercises to identify
strengths and weaknesses in current collaboration in key technical areas
(surveillance, response, and risk communication, among others).
Previous capacity assessments, such as the Joint External Evaluation or
the PVS Evaluation, are examined side by side and outcomes are shared
and discussed. Together, participants from different sectors and
different levels of health structures then identify joint actions to
address gaps and improve their collaboration at the
One of the key outputs of
these NBWs is the NBW Roadmap, a joint action plan that can be
integrated into other mandated plans such as the National Action Plan
for Health Security (NAPHS). However, this will depend greatly on the
status of the country in terms of IHR-MEF and on the level of One Health
As countries began implementing NBW roadmaps, they
requested additional evidence-based tools and resources for
strengthening collaboration. To provide countries with further
operational approaches, several tools are being developed according to
the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide (TZG). These include tools for
multisectoral coordination mechanisms, joint risk assessment,
surveillance and information sharing, and response preparedness
(REPREP), etc. animal health and human health sectors have developed
jointly to improve their collaboration.
With the NBW program,
the WHO country office is looking to recruit a national expert, who can
support the implementation of the NBW roadmap, the use of operational
tools and strategies that can be tailored to meet the country’s needs
for better coordination, collaboration, communication, and capacity
building to address health challenges at the human-animal-environment
