One Health Networks and Workforce Response to COVID-19
[ Thank you to the many of you who have already participated. If you have not yet taken this survey, here is a gentle reminder. }

Dear Colleague,

A global survey, One Health Networks and Workforce Response to COVID-19, was launched on July 15. You are invited to take the following two actions:

1) Complete the survey based on your experience.


2) Forward this email and survey link to colleagues and other interested persons in your networks.

Responses are encouraged whether or not you work in One Health or are part of a One Health Network. The estimated time to complete this questionnaire is 10 minutes. It will remain open until 5:00 PM EDT Friday, August 14, 2020.

The objective of this collaborative study is to describe the contributions of the diverse workforce to the COVID-19 pandemic and the connection of One Health networks (OHNs) to workforce response activities. The results will expand the understanding of the value of a One Health approach and the role of OHNs. Results will be utilized to develop targeted interventions to improve workforce capacity for public health response to the COVID-19 and future pandemics. 

Participation is voluntary. By submitting your answers, you consent to the use of this data for the research purposes indicated.
