Participatory Surveillance is a growing, innovative approach to preventing pandemics! Wildlife health professionals engaged in or interested in participatory/community-based disease surveillance are invited to attend a workshop focusing on data parameters for these systems.
Ending Pandemics is leading an international effort to develop a compendium of data parameters for multisector, One Health Participatory Surveillance Systems. The goal is to have a reference to support the development of new systems in One Health Participatory Surveillance and/or to support current systems who are interested in adding in a multisector approach (i.e. a human health participatory system which wants to add in environmental and animal health data).
With a group of experts, Ending Pandemics has developed a draft list of wildlife health disease parameters and information on how these parameters are being collected. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to review the current draft and provide feedback. The revised draft from this workshop will inform the fourth International Workshop on Participatory Surveillance (IWOPS IV) in Cambodia in November, 2022. The goal of IWOPS IV is to develop data standards for greater system operability and information sharing.
