Preparation of the Atlas of Zoonotic Infections in South Caucasus
The proposed work modernizes national surveillance and identifies areas at risk for diverse zoonotic pathogens in the South Caucasus. The goal of the project is to identify and illustrate geographical, ecological, anthropological, and social factors that drive the emergence, re-emergence, and persistence of pathogens in nature that are communicable to people.
The project will aid in prevention and control efforts throughout South Caucasus by identifying priority areas for targeted surveillance, livestock vaccination and public health education campaigns that reduce human transmission risk and contribute to the development of epidemiological assessment of disease burden and the improvement of programmatic planning and management in the region.
Completion of the project will provide:
- Novel methodology for identifying areas at risk for diverse pathogens;
- Enhanced surveillance to identify cases of diseases in people and animals; and
- Tools for modernized forecasting of emerging infections.
