NEOH dissemination workshop

Coordinated and delivered by Simon Rüegg, Barbara Häsler and NEOH facilitators


The NEOH dissemination workshop aims to give participants an introduction to systems thinking and to evaluation of integrated approaches to health by using frameworks and protocols developed by the Network for Evaluation of One Health. Theoretical aspects will be directly applied to case studies that participants are kindly asked to bring along.


Target audience

The workshop is suitable for scientists and professionals who work with integrated approaches to health, such as One Health or EcoHealth, and want to improve the evaluation aspects of their activity with a view to evaluate an initiative prospectively, in itere or retrospectively. Any type of initiative, such as implementation of new health services, health programmes dedicated to education, surveillance, vaccination, etc., can be considered.


What we will cover

The workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn about the NEOH evaluation framework and protocols and how to apply them to their case studies. It will be also a special occasion to exchange thoughts and ideas with experts in the field.


Format: Lectures, discussions, exercises.

Participants: maximum 30 participants.
