The project operates in three areas: Firstly, it improves international and regional cooperation on One Health and pandemic prevention. Secondly, it supports relevant institutions in six partner countries and regions to implement this approach (Cambodia, Cameroon, East African Community, Ecuador, , Selva Maya and Viet Nam). Thirdly, it promotes the technical and professional skills in the organisations concerned.
The project provides advice on digital solutions and early warning systems, using open source and existing applications. It also promotes the exchange of knowledge and long-term training in partner structures. In the Selva Maya region, indigenous knowledge is also used in pandemic prevention.
The German Epidemic Preparedness Team (SEEG) is integrated into this approach. Experts from different fields participate in it as part of a cooperation network. At the request of the various partners, they carry out short assignments in partner countries and support them in pandemic prevention and early detection.
