Project Summary:
This project will minimise risks of leprosy in humans and threatened wildlife at Cantanhez National Park, Guinea- Bissau. It will do this by developing: - an evidence-based public health campaign; - a multi-stakeholder management plan for areas of high human-wildlife interaction and key habitat for protection; - increased capacity for long-term biodiversity and health monitoring; - an infectious disease outbreak and conflict mitigation response programme By strengthening collaboration among local communities, Government, local NGOs, and scientists, the project seeks to achieve multi-stakeholder engagement in long-term public health and conservation strategy.
