The One Health Electronic Platform in Burkina Faso Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation—funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—began its work in Burkina Faso in March 2018 under the global health security agenda. In the aftermath of Ebola and other highly pathogenic infectious diseases and zoonoses that have plagued West Africa, USAID’s priority was to strengthen the Burkina Faso electronic health information system to include routine data on priority zoonoses that could affect humans, animals, and the environment.

A result of this multisectoral coalition is the One Health electronic platform, which provides real-time data on unusual events and suspected cases to central-level directorates, laboratories, and the Center for Health Emergency Response Operations (CORUS). The national One Health steering committee insures the piloting of the electronic platform. Furthermore, Burkina Faso’s electronic health management information system—ENDOS—is integrated with the One Health platform. The areas of intervention of the MEASURE Evaluation project are the Center-South and Central Plateau regions, where end users have been trained on the use of the One Health electronic platform and are able to notify suspected cases in real time.

This poster was presented and exhibited at the Global Digital Health Forum, December 9–11, 2019, in Bethesda, MD, USA.
