Africa - Regional Disease Surveillance Systems Enhancement (REDISSE) Project (English)

The development objectives of the Regional Disease Surveillance Systems Enhancement (REDISSE) Project are: (i) to strengthen national and regional cross-sectoral capacity for collaborative disease surveillance and epidemic preparedness in West Africa; and (ii) in the event of an eligible crisis or emergency, to provide immediate and effective response to said eligible crisis or emergency. The project has five components as follows: 1) The first component, Surveillance and Information Systems, will support the enhancement of national surveillance and reporting systems and their interoperability at the different tiers of the health systems. It has three sub components as follows: (i) Support coordinated community-level surveillance systems and processes across the animal and human health sectors; (ii) Develop capacity for interoperable surveillance and reporting systems; and (iii) Establish an early warning system for infectious disease trends prediction. 2) The second component, Strengthening of Laboratory Capacity, aims to establish networks of efficient, high quality, accessible public health, veterinary and private laboratories for the diagnosis of infectious human and animal diseases, and to establish a regional networking platform to improve collaboration for laboratory investigation. It has three sub components as follows: (i) Review, upgrade and support network laboratory facilities; (ii) Improve data management and specimen management; and (iii) Enhance regional reference laboratory networking functions. The third component, Preparedness and Emergency Response, will support national and regional efforts to enhance infectious disease outbreak preparedness and response capacity. It has three sub components as follows: (i) Enhance cross-sectoral coordination and collaboration for preparedness and response; (ii) Strengthen Capacity for emergency response; and (iii) Contingent Emergency Response. 4) The fourth component, Human Resource Management for Effective Disease Surveillance and Epidemic Preparedness, aims at bringing the right people with the right skills to the right place at the right time. It has two sub components as follows: (i) Health workforce mapping, planning and recruitment; and (ii) Enhance health workforce training, motivation and retention. 5) The fifth component, Institutional Capacity Building, Project Management, Coordination, and Advocacy, focuses on all aspects related to project management, coordination by West Africa Health Organization (WAHO) as well as support to enhancing the capacity of the Recovery Health Access Center (RHAC) to coordinate the implementation of animal health interventions. It has two sub components as follows: (i) Project coordination, fiduciary management, monitoring and evaluation, data generation, and knowledge management; and (ii) Institutional support, capacity building, advocacy, and communication.
