Research Sub-theme

One Health at the human/domestic animal/wildlife interface through the Mnisi Community Programme

Communities that live in areas adjacent to conservation areas, live in close association with their direct environment. Community health is significantly dependent on environmental health, and likewise, environmental health is significantly impacted by community and livestock management practices. There are also the rippling consequences on the greater conservation areas downstream from these communities. Our research aims to focus on issues that are relevant in the context of One Health in the Mnisi Community.
