The USAID Infectious Disease Detection and Surveillance (IDDS) project in Indonesia is supporting the Government of Indonesia through the IDDS (Infectious Disease Detection and Surveillance) project to strengthen the coordination and capacity in Surveillance and Detection of Zoonosis/EIDs and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) across sectors. FAO, OIE, and WHO collaboratively developed a framework called the 4-way Linking Project to support information sharing and risk assessment at the human-animal interface. The framework aims to map, link, and strengthen four information streams critical to zoonotic disease: animal health epidemiological information, animal health laboratory information, human health epidemiological information, and human health laboratory information. Supported by the National Institute of Health Research and Development (NIHRD), Ministry of Health; and the Directorate General of Livestock and Animal Health Services (DGAHS), Ministry of Agriculture, FAO, OIE, and WHO, the 4-Way Linking project was launched in December 2012 in Indonesia. The GOI demonstrated initial enthusiasm for the framework, publishing on the successful implementation of 4-way linking in 2015.
