Working Group 4
NEOH aims to address the questions “does One Health work?” and “is One Health worthwhile” and to generate rigorous evidence that would motivate enablers (policy makers, public sector, development programmes) and value chain actors to apply methods at the relevant scale. Uptake and use of the research is to be facilitated by existing strong connections between the network and national governments, international organisations, and research organisations.
Our objectives are
- To create the necessary evidence-base to enable informed decision-making and resource allocation for One Health (All working groups)
- To develop an evaluation framework for One Health (WG1)
- To evaluate One Health initiatives (WG2 and WG3)
- To promote interdisciplinary collaboration to tackle complex global challenges (WG1-WG4)
WG1 to develop (1) the overall evaluation framework, (2) a One Health index and (3) a protocol for systematic evaluation of One Health, taking into account various disciplinary perspectives and resulting complexity.
WG2 to apply the framework, protocol and index developed to different One Health initiatives (case studies) using primary and secondary datasets.
WG3 to conduct a meta-analysis of the available case study to facilitate international comparison and the elaboration of policy recommendations.
WG4 is responsible for seeking a dialogue with national governments, NGOs, research organisations, and industry throughout the project to ensure that the evidence produced addresses decision-makers’ needs.
