Uniting One Health Stakeholders

Between November 7th and 9th, Jembi proudly participated as a founding member in the Enhancing Research For Africa Network (ERFAN) regional meeting for Southern African countries.


This significant event brought together various stakeholders to discuss and share insights on veterinary science and the One Health initiative. The One Health concept integrates human, animal, and environmental health, emphasizing their interconnectedness.


Contributions and Presentations

A key highlight was the presentation by Antonio Macheve Jr., Project Manager at Jembi Mozambique.


His talk focused on:

  • Human health surveillance systems and Jembi's technical architecture for One Health.

  • This architecture is pivotal for integrating systems and exchanging data across human, animal, and environmental health information systems.

  • The primary aim is to facilitate the generation of timely data reports, automated dashboards, and analytics.

  • These tools, powered by artificial intelligence, are crucial for the prompt surveillance and prevention of outbreaks stemming from the interplay of animal, human, and environmental health.


Collaboration and Networking

The ERFAN meeting witnessed active participation from representatives of partner organizations such as the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale (IZS), World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH), World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), University of Namibia, University of Pretoria, Eduardo Mondlane University, and Central Veterinary Laboratories from various countries including Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Tanzania, and Zambia.


These collaborations underscored the event's importance, with partners stressing the value of networking to fulfill ERFAN's objectives. The meeting was not just a platform for sharing results but also a testament to the power of collective effort in advancing healthcare research and implementation in the African region.
