SOCIO-ECOLOGICAL DYNAMICS OF DISEASE


We've added three new research projects we're involved in to the website, under the heading "Socio-ecological dynamics of disease". The projects are all looking at the social, ecological, biological and institutional dynamics of disease. The work focuses particularly on diseases originating in animals, using cases in Africa and Asia. Photo: Fruitbat / Brian Gratwicke / Flickr

Diseases that are transmitted through livestock or wildlife take a major toll on people's lives. The research will identify the tipping points and thresholds involved, and how to lessen some of the negative impacts of these diseases on people's lives and livelihoods.
