Impact evaluation and risk ranking: Zoonoses in Mongolia

Provided international technical assistance on an impact evaluation and priority ranking model for zoonoses in Mongolia as part of the country’s Capacity Building for Infectious Disease Preparedness Project.

Project outputs included:

  • Development of qualitative and quantitative procedures to assess the current and potential future impact of zoonotic diseases to Mongolia, and development of a procedure for ranking the most important diseases so that priorities can be set for surveillance and control activities.
  • Provision of advice on how to use this information to develop recommendations for a joint surveillance and control strategy involving both the human health and animal health sectors.
  • Organisation of a training program so that Mongolian personnel can apply the same approach periodically in the future.
