Why public-private partnerships?
  • Public Private Partnerships offer unique
    opportunities to leverage comparative strengths
    among government, industry, NGOs and academia

5
Successful public-private partnerships
  • Focus on shared interests
  • Identify mutual benefits
  • Clearly articulate goals, objectives and
    responsibilities
  • Adapt to changing realities and needs
  • Can withstand public scrutiny

6
The origin of SSAFE
  • Outbreak of Avian Influenza (AI) in chickens in
    Thailand (Feb 2004)
  • Highlighted inconsistent responses to the problem
  • Exposed vulnerability of the global supply chain
  • Demonstrated the lack of alignment among food
    industry, governments, researchers

7
Evolution of SSAFE
  • Stakeholder meetings in March July 2005
    co-sponsored by OIE and Center for Animal Health
    Food Safety (U. Minnesota)
  • Consensus that Global Food Safety was a
    critically important issue that needs focus and
    alignment among all stakeholders
  • Identified the strong links between Human Health
    Animal Health

8
The SSAFE Objectives
  • Protect human and animal health
  • through science-based standards and their global
    implementation
  • Support an uninterrupted, sustainable food supply
    chain to/from all countries
  • consistent, affordable source of food everywhere
    in the world
  • Help developing nations to improve local
    infrastructure capacity
  • feed their population, increase stability,
    promote economic growth, education

9
An Opportunity to Change the Paradigms
OIE
  • Move from adversaries to partners
  • Promote linkages among public health, animal
    health food safety
  • Focus on global food supply
  • Leverage marketing communications channels to
    promote OIE and intl. food safety systems
  • Share risk responsibility

25
Community Vaccination
  • Several model programs in Mozambique
  • Specific to Newcastle Disease vaccination
  • Limited use on other animal health issues
  • Some data collection for animal census
  • Vaccinators are part of local community
  • While part-time business model, in reality a
    voluntary community service

26
Observations
  • Animal Health Services are highly engaged and
    seeking assistance/advice
  • Within Agriculture, animal health is low priority
  • Disease surveillance is a major challenge
  • Socioeconomic value of livestock and poultry are
    likely underestimated
  • Community Animal Health programs, while limited
    in scope and geography, appeared to be
    sustainable with little funding

27
Opportunities
  • Evaluate socioeconomic value of animal
    agriculture
  • Showcase and expand the Community Vaccination
    program
  • Establish an Public-Private Animal Health
    Leadership Team
  • Integrate family sector animal health programs
    into the commercial sector
  • Raise awareness on the importance of healthy
    animals

28
Next steps
  • Develop sustainable Community Animal Health
    program
  • Strengthen existing programs (ND, census)
  • Expand scope to include other basic services
  • Collaboration with commercial sector
  • Enabling technologies
  • Focus on Nampula Province
  • Public-Private Leadership team development
  • Goal to create a model success story for other
    provinces and developing countries

29
South America Compartmentalization project for
animal production
  • Co-sponsor of One World One Health meeting in
    Brasilia, Brazil October 2007
  • Establish and validate model production
    compartments that are recognized by a significant
    trading partner.
  • Dialogue with poultry industry and government
  • OIE project with potential World Bank funding

One World One Health principle
The earnestness and effectiveness of humankinds
environmental stewardship and the future of
health have never been more clearly linked. To
win the disease battles of the 21st Century while
ensuring the biological integrity of the Earth
for future generations requires interdisciplinary
and cross-sectoral approaches to disease
prevention, surveillance, monitoring, control and
mitigation as well as to environmental
conservation more broadly.

Ahead of the proposal of creation of deep
private of R a 1,5 million for research and to
finance practical capable to prevent the risk of
contamination for illnesses as aftosa and aviária
