Overview of the Project

Recent infectious disease outbreaks over the last couple of decades, such as Ebola, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), and Zika, have had profound impacts, causing severe burdens on human livelihoods and economies, and posing global security threats. These outbreaks have galvanized support to build capacities to meet the requirements of the International Health Regulations (IHR-2005) and to advance the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA).

The One Health approach has emerged as a means to address these infectious disease threats. One Health is an interdisciplinary, collaborative effort to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. Working together, public health, veterinary medicine, environmental science experts, and other stakeholders can better prevent, detect and respond to disease events.

The project works in 15 countries to establish and strengthen multisectoral collaboration in the prevention, detection, and response to emerging disease threats. It accomplishes this by establishing or strengthening national One Health platforms designed to address these threats, drawing on representatives from a broad range of sectors. These platforms bring government agencies and others together to ensure increased preparedness and faster response times in the face of emerging pandemic threats like Ebola, HPAI and others.

As part of this project, TRG provides institutional capacity building expertise to help establish and strengthen platforms and government preparedness and response plans. One of our primary roles is to enhance collaboration among national, regional, and local government entities involved in platforms. Examples of our services include stakeholder engagement workshops that bring together public health, animal health, and environmental sectors at the country level, simulation exercises, and case studies to test standard operating procedures (SOPs).
