Abstract


The study reports the results of an electronic survey to identify surveillance stakeholder attitudes towards One Health Surveillance (OHS) and a workshop held at the 2014 ISDS conference to identify strategies from improving surveillance. The majority of respondents reported that OHS is valued and needed. Many respondents reported that improving surveillance is of medium to high priority, but that improvements would be difficult to make. Practical approaches for moving forward included cross domain staff exchanges, tools for data integration and reporting diseases across domains.
