Guidelines for the development of OIE online modules: core requirement
Published by the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE)
Version 1.0. Updated 1 September 2021
With the support of its Collaborating Centres on Training and Education, WOAH has produced its first Training Guidelines. The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a framework for the development of quality eLearning modules for the WOAH Platform for the Training of Veterinary Services. They can also be used by any education provider or country to develop their own eLearning modules.
Veterinary workforce development: Strengthening national Veterinary ServicesThe World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) Regional Representation for Asia and the Pacific developed an awareness-raising video for veterinary service personnel and stakeholders, explaining the need for veterinary workforce planning and development.
Inspired by regional workshops on the veterinary workforce and veterinary paraprofessionals, the video includes statements from valued colleagues.

Taking a multisectoral, One Health approach: A tripartite guide to addressing zoonotic diseases in countries
Published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Organisation for Animal Health & the World Health Organization
ISBN 978-92-9-511504-0A multidisciplinary and multisectoral collaboration, through a One Health approach, is required to effectively prepare for, detect, assess, and respond to emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases.
However, external and internal health system evaluations continue to identify major gaps in capacity to implement multisectoral and multidisciplinary collaboration within and between many countries, and countries are asking for support from the Tripartite (1) to fill these gaps. This guide is the response to those requests.
(1) The Tripartite is composed of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The University of Gondar College of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences, Ethiopia, and the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, United States of America, developed an objective methodology to assess the curriculum of veterinary institutions and implement changes to create a curriculum that is harmonised with the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) standards while also covering the needs and realities of Gondar and Ethiopia. The process, developed under the sponsorship of the WOAH Veterinary Education Twinning Programme, is outlined in this article with the hope that it can be applied by other countries wishing to improve national veterinary services through the improvement of their academic programmes.

IHR-PVS National Bridging Workshops
IHR-PVS National Bridging Workshops (abbreviated NBW) are three-day events facilitated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) bringing together 50-to-80 participants from public health and from animal health services.
The objective of the workshops is to analyse and improve the collaboration between the two sectors in the prevention, detection and response to zoonotic diseases and other health events at the animal–human interface (food safety, food security, antimicrobial resistance).
