IHR-PVS National Bridging Workshop

 

 

IHR-PVS National Bridging Workshops (abbreviated NBW) are three-day events facilitated by WHO and OIE bringing together 50-to-80 participants from public health and from animal health services. The objective is to analyse and improve the collaboration between the two sectors in the prevention, detection and response to zoonotic diseases and other health events at the animal-human interface (food safety, food security, antimicrobial resistance).

About

 

The workshop is made up of a series of group exercises and follows a step-by-step progression from gap identification to solution finding. The methodology used was developed jointly by WHO and OIE and has been fined-tuned workshop after workshop to ensure an interactive, motivating and fruitful process. Participants use several fictitious scenarios of emergencies to identify the strengths and the weaknesses of the current collaboration between the sectors. Using also the results from WHO’s IRH Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and OIE’s PVS Pathway, home-grown solutions are then proposed by participants and a road-map of joint activities to improve the work at the animal-human interface is produced. This analytical process is broken down in 7 different sessions, made up of interactive and dynamic group exercises and discussions.

What are the key products of a NBW?

-       A diagnosis of current strengths and weaknesses in the collaboration between animal and human health services for 15 key technical areas;
-       A road-map of concrete, practical and realistic actions to improve the collaboration between the two sectors.

How is the NBW related to other IHR tools?

Though the workshop focuses mainly on the IHR and on the PVS Pathway, any other assessment can be used to feed into the discussions. Results of Joint External Evaluations (JEE), After-action Reviews and Simulation exercises bring a significant added-value to the discussions and to the development of the road-map. Corrective measures identified in the road-map can also feed directly in the development of the National Action Plan for Health Security (NAPHS) or in the JEE self-evaluation.
