Case study description

The innovation under study

A central issue in disease management is how to construct permanent surveillance networks that are capable of promptly detecting the emergence of an epizootic to enable a rapid reaction.  This issue is even more important in developing countries where human and financial resources are limited and geographical access and communications are sometimes very restricted. The innovation considered is a set of novel approaches developed to evaluate and improve surveillance systems, based on:

  • Quantitative methods and tools (capture-recapture method; OASISTrop tool)
  • Economic methods to design efficient protocols for emerging disease surveillance strategies.
  • Participatory methods for stakeholder involvement, information sharing and as a tool to determine actor behaviors, benefits and capacities for disease risk management.
