Can we effectively strengthen wildlife health surveillance globally through a collaborative and evidence-based consortium of local, national, and international organizations?
Team Status: ONGOING
Team Critical Challenge:

1a. Prioritize surveillance to focus on high-risk interfaces by synthesizing data on health impacts on wildlife, existing wildlife health surveillance systems, missing cases of wildlife health events and detection bias, and socio-ecological interfaces and high spillover risk practices;

1b. Address sustainability through analyses of data and creation of tools to estimate cost effectiveness and benefits of surveillance, drawing from existing wildlife or livestock surveillance systems;

2a. Communicate a co-developed theory of change that connects multilateral agreements (e.g., Sustainable Development Goals) and international frameworks to the practical implementation of wildlife surveillance systems;

2b. Formalize the consortium through the drafting of a collaboration agreement with endorsements from respective member institutions describing how we work together in the long term and identify capabilities, synergies, and gaps among stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable wildlife health surveillance globally.
