Global drive on improve zoonoses response:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In a move that seeks to promote a faster healthcare response to outbreaks of zoonoses - animal diseases that are transmissible to humans - the WHO and its animal health counterparts are this week launching the Global Early Warning and Response System (GLEWS). Information gathered through the partners' tracking and verification channels will be shared through the GLEWS platform and analysed to decide whether to issue an alert on its potential public health impact. "Early detection and co-ordination is critical," said Mrs Susanne Weber-Mosdorf, WHO assistant director-general for sustainable development and healthy environments. Among the zoonoses that are impacting on healthcare policy are avian influenza and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.
