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.
