    Jordan: Evaluation for action
    Assessing animal disease surveillance capacities, May 2021

    Strong surveillance systems are critical to identify and respond to human and animal threats rapidly, and to develop efficient disease control programmes. To support countries in building their national veterinary surveillance systems, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) developed the Surveillance Evaluation Tool (SET). SET provides countries with a comprehensive and repeatable methodology to evaluate animal disease surveillance at all levels (central, intermediate and field), leading to the development of specific recommendations for improvement in the form of a prioritized action plan. Additionally, in 2020 FAO developed the SET Biothreat Detection Module (SET-BT) covering attributes related to the surveillance of agro-terrorism and agro-crime. A SET evaluation and SET-BT pilot mission was conducted in Jordan in May 2021 in close collaboration with the country’s veterinary services and law enforcement agencies. The validation of the SET outputs and recommendations by the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) of Jordan and Jordan’s security forces in the form of a report will provide guidance to the veterinary services as well as financial and technical partners on ways to improve Jordan’s animal and zoonotic disease surveillance, and will contribute to a multifaceted approach to capacity building in the country, and in the region. Results and recommendations of the SET-BT module were kept as confidential for security reasons. This activity was organized with the support of a grant from the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH). The grant was provided through funding from Global Affairs Canada's Weapons Threat Reduction Program as part of the Building Resilience Against Agro-terrorism and Agro-crime project.

    The Republic of Uzbekistan – Evaluation for action
    Assessing animal disease surveillance capacities, October 2021

    In response from a request from member countries, FAO developed the Surveillance Evaluation Tool (SET) in 2017 to assess animal disease surveillance systems and provide country-specific recommendations for improvement. SET has been largely used in Africa under funding by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to guide capacity-building activities related to animal disease surveillance. Following its successful implementation in project countries, the tool was made available to other countries and region under specific funding. Outbreaks of livestock diseases can have devastating impacts on people’s livelihoods, and over 70 percent of animal disease can spill over to humans. Strong surveillance systems are therefore critical to identify and respond to human and animal threats rapidly, and to develop efficient disease control programmes. To support countries in building their national veterinary surveillance systems, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) developed the Surveillance Evaluation Tool (SET). SET provides countries with a comprehensive and repeatable methodology to evaluate animal disease surveillance at all levels (central, intermediate and field), leading to the development of specific recommendations for improvement in the form of a prioritised action plan. An evaluation mission in the Republic of Uzbekistan was conducted in October-November 2021 in close collaboration with the country’s veterinary services. The validation of the SET outputs in the form of a report will provide guidance to the veterinary services as well as financial and technical partners on ways improve Uzbekistan's animal and zoonotic disease surveillance, and will contribute to a multifaceted approach to capacity building in the country, and in the region.

    United Republic of Tanzania – Evaluation for action
    Assessing animal disease surveillance capacities – November 2020

    In response to a request from Members, FAO developed the surveillance evaluation tool (SET) in 2017 to assess animal disease surveillance systems and provide country-specific recommendations for improvement. SET has been largely used in Africa under funding by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to guide capacity-building activities related to animal disease surveillance. Following its successful implementation in project countries, the tool was made available to other countries and region under specific funding. A re-evaluation mission to the United Republic of Tanzania was conducted in November 2020 in close partnership with the country’s veterinary services. This was the first SET re-evaluation done, and the country was the first to pilot the tool in 2017. Findings from the missions and recommendations were compiled in a report that can be used by governments and partners to identify priority areas to improve animal disease surveillance in the United Republic of Tanzania.
