The purpose of this 2-day One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Workshop was to identify zoonotic diseases of greatest national concern for Côte d’Ivoire. This workshop used equal input from representatives of human health, livestock, environment, wildlife, research, and higher education sectors. During the workshop, representatives identified a list of zoonotic diseases relevant for Côte d’Ivoire (Appendix A), defined the criteria for prioritization, and determined questions and weights relevant to each criterion (Appendix B). Five zoonotic diseases/disease groups were identified as a priority (Table 1) by participants using a semi-quantitative selection tool, the One Health Zoonotic Disease Prioritization Tool, developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (Rist, 2014; CDC OHZDP Overview, 2016).
