Electronic surveillance (e-Surveillance) is the use of electronic systems to empower the digitization of the PHS functions of prevention, detection, and response. The African One Health e-Surveillance Initiative (OHSI) established a project framework consisting of One Health teams conducting a national assessment of ICT capacity to support e-Surveillance. Results will be used to inform national strategic planning. OHSI stimulated efforts of an African Surveillance Informatics Governance Board chaired by the World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa.
