Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) Program: PREVENT

A project under the Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) Program that focused on characterizing risks associated with disease transmission between animals and people and developing risk-mitigation strategies. Specific activities included: characterizing specific practices and behaviors (e.g. bushmeat hunting and butchering, raising wildlife for trade and consumption) that expose people to zoonotic diseases; and developing and deploying risk-mitigation strategies, including a tool for extractive-industry workers to decrease their exposure to emerging zoonoses.
