Bridging WHO and OIE Tools to better control global health risks at the human-animal interface

More than 60% of human infectious diseases worldwide are caused by pathogens of zoonotic nature, transmitted by domestic or wild animals.

Tuesday 7 October 2014 (3 years 7 months 15 days ago)

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), jointly with the World Health Organization (WHO) has released a guide for national public health authorities and national animal health authorities represented by Veterinary Services outlining methods for strengthening the good governance of health systems worldwide: “WHO-OIE Operational Framework for Good governance at the human-animal interface: Bridging WHO and OIE tools for the assessment of national capacities”.

More than 60% of human infectious diseases worldwide are caused by pathogens of zoonotic nature, transmitted by domestic or wild animals. The evolution of new and re-emerging pathogens resulting from a multitude of factors represent a growing global threat to human and animal health, food security, food safety, poverty reduction and biodiversity. Therefore, preventing diseases at their animal source is crucial for protecting human health.

With the support of the World Bank, and of the European Union (Avian and Human Influenza Facility, with the World Bank acting as administrator of this Trust Fund), the WHO and the OIE have developed the guide to assist Member Countries develop better coordinated programmes to address national health risks at the human-animal interface. The guide also provides a comprehensive overview and understanding of all the tools available in the context of the IHR Monitoring Framework and the OIE PVS Pathway and furthermore explains how to use these tools to create bridges and meet “One Health” objectives, of which the OIE and the WHO are active promoters with the support of FAO.

Consult the OIE-WHO Operational framework for Good governance at the human-animal interface.
