Observatoire Scientifique en Appui à la GEstion de la Santé sur un territoire (OSAGE-S)

Abstract : Within the “Health and Environment” framework, a group of scientists in disciplinary fields as diverse as biology, medical sciences, modelling, ecology, geography, computer sciences, are collaborating to study the dynamics of infectious diseases in Southeast Asia. In this paper they propose to pool their knowledge on biological pathogens, environment and societies and to share their field, laboratory and clinical expertise to address questions on research, disease monitoring and health management. An integrative platform has been suggested and organised in order to implement a Scientific Observatory (OSAGE-S), dedicated to supporting Health Management in a Territory. The first part of this work addresses generic and epistemological questions, formally explicits the formula “Health and Environment” in order to relate it to concepts such as « pathological system », « environment » and « observatory »; the second part relates to further operational issues for the observatory concept dedicated to the support of Health management. Thereafter we illustrate our proposition with a case study, the Chikungunya disease in Indonesia.
