One Health Sweden – Benefits of an overall One Health perspective in society
The overall aim of the Network on Evaluation of One Health, NEOH, is to enable appropriate evaluations of One Health activities and hence the comparison of initiatives as well as informed decision-making and resource allocation.
To this end, NEOH will deliver:
1) A science-based, standardised framework for the evaluation of One Health;
2) a suite of example evaluations of One Health initiatives;
3) a networked community of experts collaborating to assess the value of One Health; and
4) a pool of early-stage researchers trained in performing evaluations of One Health activities.
The NEOH specifically focuses on an integrated, interdisciplinary evaluation of One Health activities to form an evidence-base on the added value of OH (or even demonstrate in which instances there is not an added value). The first activity focused on an evaluation protocol and guidelines, which will then be applied to case studies and hopefully NEOH will be able to do a meta-analysis later on.
Those who are already working on One Health and are interested in collaboration, cooperation and networking are welcome to contact the coordinator Barbara Häsler at the Royal Veterinary College in the UK, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
