Important International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) One Health survey request… October 22, 2014 Dear Colleagues and readers of the One Health Initiative website, Your assistance is greatly needed to help identify gaps in capacity, information, and networks with regard to One Health Surveillance (OHS) approaches to disease surveillance.  International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) is conducting a survey to gauge the views of health surveillance professionals worldwide on the motivations and general capabilities for implementing integrated animal, human, and environmental surveillance approaches to solve complex health problems.  The results will help ISDS and other partner organizations to develop and deliver capacity-building activities that meet the priority needs of surveillance professionals in different domains to advance OHS approaches. The survey results will also be used to launch further discussion at the 2014 ISDS Conference.  Your responses will be kept confidential. Please answer every question to the best of your ability. Your survey responses should represent your experiences and perceptions and will not be viewed as the official position of your organization. Feel free to add comments where indicated to clarify your responses. Please respond to the survey by Friday November 7, 2014. If you have any questions contact: Thank you for your participation!
