The One Health Network-South Asia was created to enhance capacity in epidemiology and biosecurity in the South Asia region. This network is an overarching nexus connecting country-based One Health Hubs, collaborative epidemiological projects, and other collaboration groups across South Asia. It is underpinned by Hubnet, providing a resource in which members can share information, expertise and resources, both internally and with regional and international organizations.
Collaborative, one health, epidemiological projects are underway in seven countries within the One Health Network-South Asia. These projects are focused on the national disease priorities, critical needs and key constraints identified after consultation with each country.
