Network for Evaluation of One Health

Network for Evaluation of One Health (NEOH)

COST Action TD1404

Funded by COST from the 17 Nov 2014 to 16 Nov 2018

Human health and well-being are increasingly affected by global challenges such as malnutrition, emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial resistance and climate change. A One Health approach has been proposed to tackle the challenges through accepting that their complexity requires interdisciplinarity.

 

 

Several One Health initiatives have been implemented, such as the establishment of cross-sectoral coordination, communication and data sharing mechanisms, but no standardised methodology exists for quantitative evaluation of One Health activities.Therefore the Network for Evaluation of One Health (NEOH) aims to enable future quantitative evaluations of One Health activities and to further the evidence base by developing and applying a science-based evaluation protocol in a community of experts (See our Memorandum of Understanding for more information).

 

 

 

The NEOH grant is held by the Royal Veterinary College, London and chaired by Dr Barbara Häsler
