  • Assisting universities with capacity building in the One Health area – One Health curriculum development, faculty linkages, workshops, staff development and mentoring arrangements between schools
wildlife health capacity building 1
Wildlife Health Capacity Building – 1
  • If EPT is primarily concerned with wildlife diseases jumping to humans
  • Then it follows that the earliest possible detection should be while the threat is still primarily confined to wild animals
  • Forestry and wildlife departments in Southeast Asia are therefore a critical component of One Health and early response to an EPT
wildlife health capacity building 2
Wildlife Health Capacity Building –2
  • Developing the capacity of government wildlife workers (e.g. rangers, biologists) to act as ‘first responders’ in wildlife disease surveillance activities
  • Enhancing capacity of veterinary professionals to develop wildlife disease surveillance programs and investigate outbreaks of disease in wildlife
  • Strengthening regional networks and linkages between wildlife workers, veterinarians and medical professionals in a One Health approach to investigating infectious diseases of human importance in wildlife
building capacity of wildlife rangers and veterinarians to be the first line of surveillance

Wildlife Health Capacity Building –3

Building capacity of Wildlife Rangers and Veterinarians to be the first line of surveillance
