The Liberia National Malaria Strategic Plan 2021–2025 redefines the strategic direction and focus of the malaria program, including strengthening of management and coordination structures, health systems, and capacities to achieve greater equity, coverage, quality, and more effective delivery of the interventions. In addition, the malaria NSP includes plans for preparedness and timely response during emergencies to ensure malaria control activities continue with minimal disruptions in an emergency (e.g., Ebola virus disease or coronavirus).
This kit aims to help NGOs strengthen their disease outbreak preparedness and respond quickly and effectively to emerging epidemics and pandemics.
This webinar provides an overview of the One Health concept and practical guidance on entry points for One Health approaches targeted to humanitarian sector operations for outbreak response. A key goal of the webinar is to promote dialogue on how One Health strategies can be best leveraged to add value to existing humanitarian operations to improve readiness for health threats and emergencies at the human-animal-environment interface. This event was hosted by the USAID Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance-supported READY initiative. Presentation slides are also available.
The purpose of this manual is to provide expert guidance on the planning and preparation needed for epidemic prevention and control. The manual focuses on practical and essential knowledge about infectious diseases for national political and operational decision makers.
The Tripartite Zoonoses Guide was jointly developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the World Health Organization to support countries in taking a multisectoral One Health approach to address zoonotic diseases.
This document provides key messages for individuals and communities on how to prepare for and stay safe during pandemics and epidemics.
These guidelines provide evidence-based guidance on how risk communication should be practiced in an emergency, including guidance to countries on building capacity for communicating risk during health emergencies. This includes guidance on: building trust and engaging with communities and affected populations; integrating risk communication into existing national and local emergency preparedness and response structures; and emergency risk communication practice—from strategizing, planning, coordinating, messaging, channeling, and different methods and approaches of communication and engagement, to monitoring and evaluation—based on a systematic assessment of the evidence on what worked and what did not work during recent emergencies.
FAO developed this National Framework for One Health to assist national authorities in initiating steps to strengthen the control of antimicrobial resistance and disease in a comprehensive manner through collaborative action among various sectors.
This Operational Framework provides a practical reference toward achieving public health systems preparedness and resilience to existing and future disease threats at the human-animal-environment interface. It offers a comprehensive overview of the One Health concept and operational guidance for One Health application (what, why, and how), serving as a detailed orientation for users who wish to understand and implement this approach.
This national risk communication strategy document was developed in collaboration with One Health stakeholders in Cote d'Ivoire, with support from Breakthrough ACTION. It focuses on the country's five priority zoonotic diseases and has been structured according to the main phases of health threat management (preparation, response, and recovery).
