After an introduction by Laurent Toulouse on the importance of the OHSEA FSPI, a presentation of the progress and follow-up was made with budgetary details.
The committee then issued recommendations:
– Patrice Debré, in charge of the Aviesan Sud network, suggested that the network of neglected tropical diseases (NTD) should be contacted. In particular, the working group on AMR.
It was also pointed out that the Institut Pasteur offers training via MOOC in this field of NTDs.
– Catherine Constant also suggested a rapprochement with the FSPI on African Swine Fever (François Roger underlined the disappointing results of vaccines, strongly supported by the Americans). Similarly, it is important to take an interest in ticks (Serge recalled that projects selected under the OHSEA call are interested in this aspect).
– It is also recalled to articulate our actions with PREZODE (we recall that Flavie Goutard and Anne-Laure Bañuls, members of the PREZODE coordination, are among the members of the OHSEA monitoring committee). Cécile Adam (MEAE/DDD/Huma) also reminds us of her availability to make the link.
– The integration of the Philippines is possible (and recommended, given the presence of the ADB, the WHO, the strong will of the French embassy and also the Asean Center for Biodiversity). It will nevertheless be necessary to formalise, under NDI addressed to the FSPI unit, the request to carry out and finance actions with the Philippines in the framework of this project.
– An extension in 2023 of the OHSEA project (carry-over of credits) is not possible at the moment but could be reconsidered at the end of 2023.
– It is suggested to participate in training modules in medical schools – We should start thinking about a closing event to promote the FSPI.
