OH Integration – Inspiration Catalogue

Inspiration on how to integrate One Health collaboration in Surveillance

Read the idea catalogue here.

The catalogue is developed to inspire surveillance actors and users on how to enhance cross-sector integration in surveillance. It illustrates how many countries already have overcome some of the major barriers such as data-sharing, knowledge exchange and collaboration across sectors, cultures and disciplines. Often the solutions were tailor-made to the specific problem at the time. The catalogue demonstrates clearly that Where there is will -there is a way and many of the integration-solutions are inventive, practical and fit-for-purpose and maybe useful to other countries in different situations.

The inspiration catalogue describes 16 integrated surveillance initiatives in Europe countries and Singapore. Each initiative is described briefly, covering the history, the integration levels, governance and the actors involved as well as some of the main challenges and advantages. The information was obtained from personal interviews and a contact email is included for each initiative for readers to explore the relevant initiatives in more detail.
