Abstract : The Global Early Warning System for Animal Diseases including major Zoonoses (GLEWS) is a joint tool that builds on the added value of linking FAO, OIE and WHO alert mechanisms, and triangulating expertise and disciplines from the three organizations to provide joint risk assessment of potential health threats. FAO, OIE and WHO use their organizational systems to detect threats and to verify information via national authorities, other country representation and relevant networks. A closed electronic platform has been developed to manage, present and store GLEWS data. The GLEWS Task Force in FAO, OIE and WHO regularly tracks disease events, conducts epidemiological analyses and maintains a Web platform to facilitate information exchange on disease threats at the animal-human interface. GLEWS could be strengthened by supplementing joint risk assessment with information about the drivers for emergence and persistence of disease, to build a more complete body of evidence towards understanding trends and epidemiology, and to build on preventive and predictive capacity to better assess risks and ultimately to assist in preventing, controlling and effectively containing these disease risks. This presentation describes GLEWS current status and the potential for its future use, in support of the renewed tripartite commitment to reduce the impact of disease threats on animal and human health and development.
