    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.

    Surveillance and Information Sharing Operational Tool
    An operational tool of the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide
    2022
    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.

    Informing resilience building: FAO’s Surveillance Evaluation Tool (SET) Biothreat Detection Module will help assess national capacities to detect agro-terrorism and agro-crime 2021
    Also available in:

    Attacks using animal pathogens can have devastating socioeconomic, public health, and national security consequences. The livestock sector has some inherent vulnerabilities which put it at risk to the deliberate or accidental spread of disease. The growing concern of countries about the risks of agro-terrorism and agro-crime has led to efforts to prepare against potential attacks. One recent international effort is the launch of a joint OIE, FAO, and INTERPOL project in 2019 to build resilience against agro-terrorism and agro-crime targeting animal health with the financial support of the Weapons Threat Reduction Programme of Global Affairs Canada. Given the importance of strong animal health surveillance systems for the early and effective response to agro-terrorism and agro-crime, the project will use the FAO Surveillance Evaluation Tool (SET) and its new Biothreat Detection Module to evaluate beneficiary countries’ capacities to detect criminal or terrorist animal health events. This paper presents the development of the new SET Biothreat Detection Module and how it will be used to evaluate surveillance for agro-terrorism and agro-crime animal disease threats. The module will be piloted in early 2021 and, once finalized, will be used by beneficiary countries of the joint OIE-FAO-INTERPOL project. Results from evaluations using SET and its Biothreat Detection Module are expected to provide a baseline from which countries can build targeted capacity for animal disease surveillance including early detection and investigation of potential terrorist or criminal events involving zoonotic and non-zoonotic animal pathogens.
