    SIS OT is an operational tool for guiding a gradual assessment process on a specific country's (in this example, Indonesia's) integrated surveillance capacity and cross-sectoral information system for zoonotic disease. A cross-sector Surveillance and Information Sharing System coordinated by One Health (OH) is critical for the rapid detection of zoonotic disease events in a country, using information from animal health, human health, environment, and other relevant sectors. Under a cross-sectoral OH coordination, SIS OT assists national authorities in their efforts to create and strengthen zoonotic disease surveillance and information sharing (SIS).During the SIS OT workshop, participants agreed on the scope and rationale for zoonotic disease targets such as Rabies, Avian Influenza, Japanese Encephalitis, Nipah, Anthraks, Leptospirosis, and others. The followings were established during the SIS OT workshop, which took place from 5-7 October 2021: 1) a step-wise methodology for independent evaluation of current national structures or systems; 2) a list of target activities to be completed, a plan for improving surveillance and information sharing, and a timetable for the development of integrated surveillance national system for zoonotic disease; and 3) a list of resources to support the list of activities, based on nationally determined priorities and unique situational needs.The SIS OT recommendations will be implemented during three time periods. Each activity is led by a ministry/institution, with other ministries/agencies assisting its implementation. Since 2021, a portion of SIS OT activities have been carried out concurrently and will continue to be carried out according to the specified timetable.

    Taking a Multisectoral One Health Approach : A Tripartite Guide to Addressing Zoonotic Diseases in Countries 2019
    The 2019 FAO-OIE-WHO (Tripartite) zoonoses guide, “Taking A Multisectoral, One Health Approach: A Tripartite Guide to Addressing Zoonotic Diseases in Countries” (2019 TZG) is being jointly developed to provide member countries with practical guidance on OH approaches to build national mechanisms for multisectoral coordination, communication, and collaboration to address zoonotic disease threats at the animal-human-environment interface. The 2019 TZG updates and expands on the guidance in the one previous jointly-developed, zoonoses-specific guidance document: the 2008 Tripartite “Zoonotic Diseases: A Guide to Establishing Collaboration between Animal and Human Health Sectors at the Country Level”, developed in WHO South-East Asia Region and Western Pacific Region. The 2019 TZG supports building by countries of the resilience and capacity to address emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases such as avian influenza, rabies, Ebola, and Rift Valley fever, as well as food-borne diseases and antimicrobial resistance, and to minimize their impacts on health, livelihoods, and economies. It additionally supports country efforts to implement WHO International Health Regulations (2005) and OIE international standards, to address gaps identified through external and internal health system evaluations, and to achieve targets of the Sustainable Development Goals. The 2019 TZG provides relevant country ministries and agencies with lessons learned and good practices identified from country-level experiences in taking OH approaches for preparedness, prevention, detection and response to zoonotic disease threats, and provides guidance on multisectoral communication, coordination, and collaboration. It informs on regional and country-level OH activities and relevant unisectoral and multisectoral tools available for countries to use.

    Surveillance and Information Sharing Operational Tool
    An operational tool of the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide
    Zoonotic diseases pose risks to both animal and human health and impact livelihoods, economies, and national and global food and health security. Surveillance is an essential part of prevention and control of zoonotic diseases but cannot be effectively addressed by one sector alone. A collaborative, One Health approach and a coordinated multisectoral surveillance system are essential to rapidly identify and respond to zoonotic disease events within a country. The Surveillance and Information Sharing Operational tool (SIS OT) is a Tripartite (FAO, WHO, WOAH) tool developed under the leadership of FAO to support national authorities to establish or strengthen their coordinated, multisectoral surveillance and information sharing for zoonotic diseases. The SIS OT is based on the principles presented in the Tripartite Zoonosis Guide, in particular on “Surveillance for zoonotic diseases and information sharing”. It includes the guidance document with annexes and the Excel-based tool (SIS OT workbook). It is intended for use by a working group or in a workshop setting, by participants representing the animal health, human health, environmental health and other relevant sectors within a country that have responsibility for zoonotic diseases. It provides guidance and a stepwise method and instrument for assessing the national structures and mechanisms already in place. It links users to a curated set of existing resources developed by the Tripartite and other institutions that can help develop or improve that capacity. Finally, the SIS OT guides development of a roadmap and SIS development plan to use those resources to bridge existing structures and build or strengthen the country’s coordinated surveillance system.
