How did we monitor the implementation of transparency standards?
Monitoring the implementation of standards related to transparency of Veterinary Services requires building and analysing indicators using various data sources.
What transparency indicators did we use to monitor the implementation of these standards?
Several indicators made it possible to monitor the implementation of standards related to transparency, among them:
Lag between the confirmation of a listed disease and the submission of an immediate notification to WOAH
Confidentiality status of PVS reports
Performance of Veterinary Services regarding transparency, as assessed by the PVS Tool:
– Percentage of Members that have been assessed with a Level of Advancement of 3 or more for the Critical Competency IV-6 related to transparency
Number of Members that have published a national report on the use of antimicrobials
What data sources did we use to build transparency indicators?
Four main data sources made it possible to build the monitoring indicators:
Lag between the date of confirmation of a listed disease and the date the immediate notification was sent to WOAH: data extracted from WAHIS immediate notifications (2005-2021)
Confidentiality status of the PVS reports corresponding to PVS Evaluation, Follow-up and Gap Analysis missions: PVS dataset, as compiled and provided by the WOAH Capacity Building Department (2006-2021)
Performance of Veterinary Services on transparency: PVS dataset, as compiled and provided by the WOAH Capacity Building Department (2016-2021)
Members that have published a national report on the use of antimicrobials: specific question about the existence of such a publicly available report at national level in the annual reports on the use of antimicrobials submitted to WOAH (2016-2021)
