    Challenges of animal health information systems and surveillance for animal diseases and zoonoses 2011
    Also available in:

    Animal Disease Surveillance is key to improving disease analysis, early warning and predicting disease emergence and spread. As a preventive measure, disease surveillance is aimed at reducing animal health-related risks and major consequences of disease outbreaks on food production and livelihoods. Early warning systems are dependent on the quality of animal disease information collected at all levels via effective surveillance; therefore, data gathering and sharing is essential to understand th e dynamics of animal diseases in diverse agro-ecological settings to support effective decision-making to prevent disease and for emergency response. Animal Disease surveillance systems track zoonotic diseases and identify emerging diseases and as such, are recognised as a global public good to support improved animal and global public health.

    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.
