Zoonoses Project 5. Collating examples of Institutions, Policies and Stakeholders involved in the Management of Zoonoses. A final report to the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID)

Abstract

This report ‘Collating examples of policies, institutions and stakeholders involved in managing the risks of zoonoses', was commissioned to assist researchers submitting proposals to DFID, and the reviewers of the proposals by developing a meta-database of information resources, supported by a report, which focus on key researchable issues in this topic. The project scope is strongly focused on small holder livestock production systems and poverty alleviation, while the geographic scope is mainly on South East Asia, South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa. The aim is to encourage researchers and reviewers to think broadly about the opportunities for research, and to point people to information resources in the database that might be useful.

The database and report focus more on generic systems rather than specific diseases, and on key institutions, policies and stakeholders, rather than technical knowledge which is more readily available to researchers and reviewers. The report analyses five cross-cutting themes:
(1) Health systems strengthening research
(2) Livestock value chains and zoonoses
(3) Ecosystems, natural resource management and livestock production systems and their relationship with zoonoses
(4) Sustainable management of endemic zoonoses
(5) Management of zoonotic disease emergencies.

Further detail is provided in Annexes to the report including seven case studies: (1) Nipah, (2) Rift Valley Fever, (3) HPAI, (4) Brucellosis, (5) Hydatid disease, (6) Livestock Value Chains, and (7) Rabies.
