A Workshop on the Development of a One Health Manual on Handling Disease Outbreaks III

Continuing from the last workshop in August, from 19th to 22nd October at the Swiss Garden Resort, Lumut Perak, a Workshop on the Development of a One Health Manual on Handling Disease Outbreaks III was held in order to finalize the manual. In this workshop, each groups had to review their chapter as well as reviewing a chosen chapter from another group. This workshop was the third of the three workshops planned to develop the first ever user-friendly multi-disciplinary One Health Manual on handling disease outbreaks in Malaysia. Only 12 participants were involved at this stage where there were 5 representatives from universities, 5 from Department of Veterinary Services and 2 from the Ministry of Health. During the workshop, constructive comments were made by members and participants and amendments to the manual were made in the workshop itself. The final draft of the manual was assembled by the project leader before another meeting with representatives from each group will be held to check and finalize the draft. Afterward, the finalized manual will be forwarded to the Director General of Ministry of Health and Department of Veterinary Service to contribute their foreword.
