Sega One Health Network
Zika, Ebola, Chikungunya... Indian ocean islands are all vulnerable to epidemic risks. Commercial trade, ease of world travel, increased global interdependence, rapid urbanization and natural disasters contribute to the spread of infectious diseases.
To address these common health issues, the right answer is regional. It is the approach of the Indian ocean Commission (IOC), who has strengthened the cooperation between health services of its five member States and created the regional surveillance network SEGA One health with funding from the Agence Française de développement (AFD).
