Summary
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and National Research Council (NRC) convened a 2-day workshop titled Workshop on Sustainable Global Capacity for Surveillance and Response to Emerging Zoonoses in Washington, DC, on June 25 and 26, 2008. The goal of the workshop--as one of several planned data gathering sessions for the committee to meet their overall charge--was more narrowly focused to review the current global capacity to carry out surveillance to detect, report, and monitor emerging infectious diseases in both humans and animals. This included brief discussions that began to examine how these systems might inform the necessary responses to emerging and reemerging infectious diseases of zoonotic origin that would be discussed more in-depth in the committees forthcoming consensus report. The workshop did not address, however, the details of any specific global or regional responses to any particular disease outbreak. The workshop did provide an opportunity for participants to examine the effectiveness of communication pathways among multidisciplinary practitioners and researchers, between the human and animal health constituencies, and between these professionals and the public. This document is a report of that workshop and is a companion to the full consensus report (anticipated for summer 2009) of the IOM/NRC Committee on Achieving Sustainable Capacity for Surveillance and Response to Emerging Diseases of Zoonotic Origin. For the complete study, the committee is charged with exploring how emerging zoonotic disease surveillance, prevention, detection, and response could be strengthened and sustained globally over time to reduce or eliminate outbreaks of zoonotic diseases in human populations.--Page ix-x
