Do you work on disease surveillance systems?
Are you concerned about foodborne zoonoses in food production chains?
A new scientific article by JIP MATRIX, published in Frontiers in Public Health journal, mapped food surveillance chains through different sectors.
The paper described the methodological approach used to map the components of the existing disease surveillance systems for two case scenarios:
1) Listeria monocytogenes in dairy products in Norway.
2) Salmonella surveillance in pig meat in France.
These zoonotic bacteria pose risks to public health.
This paper aims to enable further application of this methodological approach to other contexts/scenarios and shares the lessons learned. This approach can support identifying new opportunities for integrating One Health Surveillance.
