    Competencies for One Health field epidemiology (COHFE) framework 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The competencies for One Health field epidemiology (COHFE) framework includes fourteen domains that cover technical and functional knowledge, skills, and competencies needed by One Health field epidemiologists working at all administrative levels, including district, regional, and national/international levels. This document is structured to cover the knowledge, skills and competencies needed for three levels of epidemiology training programmes, frontline, intermediate and advanced, which loosely correspond to the administrative levels mentioned previously. The subdomains and related competencies in this document are organized to create a link among the three administrative levels.

    Guidance for One Health field epidemiology curriculum development
    A supplemental manual to the Competencies for One Health field epidemiology (COHFE) framework

    This document details higher order One Health competencies at the subdomain level based on competencies defined in the 14 domains of the COHFE Framework. The subdomain level higher order competencies are defined in Table X.1 for each domain (numbered by domain) at three training levels (frontline, intermediate and advanced), with each level building on the previous level so that demonstration of the previous level’s competencies is required in addition to those indicated at the given level. The guidance also recommends and describes curriculum topics and provides example learning objectives for all three training levels.

    Project
    Improving Global, Regional and National Capacities for Field Veterinary Epidemiology and Surveillance Networks - GCP/GLO/892/USA 2024
    Also available in:

    With veterinary epidemiology capacities around the world lacking, there is high demand for a well-trained global veterinary workforce. Training veterinarians and animal health professionals in field veterinary epidemiology will better equip them to monitor livestock diseases, including zoonotic diseases. As a result, surveillance can be conducted efficiently and outbreaks identified and analysed more rapidly, allowing countries to prevent and respond to outbreaks in a more effective and timely manner using a One Health approach. The present project, the second phase of a project implemented between 2014 and 2018, aimed to continue to build field veterinary epidemiology capacity through training sessions on field epidemiology for veterinarians, participatory epidemiology/disease surveillance (PE/PDS) and risk assessment, as well as to support sustainable networks through the development of disease information platforms for sharing of epidemiological information.
