Checklist for One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence
What is COHERE?
The Checklist for One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence (COHERE) was designed in the style of the widely-used research tool STROBE (STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology). The authorship team of COHERE includes both well established and rising One Health researchers from multiple disciplines. In addition to the authorship team, international experts were consulted for external review prior to manuscript submission. Inclusion of many experts in the process has resulted in a robust and unique tool that many believe has been “greatly needed.” The authors intend that this be a “living document” which is revised as needed, and encourage users of the tool to provide feedback via the corresponding author.
The goals of COHERE:
- Improve the quality of reporting of observational epidemiology studies integrating data on humans, animals and/or vectors, and their shared environments.
- Promote the concept that One Health studies should integrate data from these three sectors.
The COHERE Framework:
