Combining Metrics for One Health

Simon Reid and colleagues at the University of Queensland in Australia will develop a combined metric using Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis to integrate divergent values on impacts of disease interventions from the agricultural, animal husbandry, and human health sectors. These sectors are involved in addressing similar issues such as disease control, but they each have different priorities. They will focus on the impact of interventions to reduce the incidence of two diseases in Bangladesh, and use existing data and consultation with stakeholders to identify priorities for intervention, including livelihood impact and livestock productivity, that are then ranked by each sector. This will be used to develop a measurement framework that preserves the priorities for each sector, but provides a means of comparing them and achieving consensus.
