The overall One Health PACT project sets out to provide warning indicators for tipping points, new surveillance and risk assessment tools and ecosystem maps, my PhD project aims to translate all this new knowledge into actionable interventions and preparedness/response guidelines. In addition to the knowledge generated during the OHPACT project, relevant stakeholders will be identified and their expert opinion will be taken into account. The interventions and guidelines that will be developed within this PHD project will be tested in outbreak simulation exercises with the identified stakeholders. In addition to that, interventions will be modelled to test their effectiveness. Eventually this PhD will result in, up to date guidelines for an arboviral disease outbreak and a set of interventions for the prevention and control of these arboviruses. Within these interventions and guidelines the four change scenarios will be taken into account.
Research questions / objectives
To create preparedness plans and outbreak management guidelines for new emerging arbovirus disease outbreaks including intervention strategies, based on stakeholder priority topics, research results from work package 1 to 8 and outbreak simulation results.
This project 'Preparing for vector-borne virus outbreaks in a changing world: a One Health Approach' (NWA. 1160.1S.210) is (partly) financed by the Dutch Research Council (NWO).
