Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa

Project dates: 2011-2016

Over the past few decades, more than 60 per cent of emerging infectious diseases affecting people have had their origin in wildlife or livestock. As well as presenting a threat of global disease outbreak, these zoonotic diseases quietly devastate lives and livelihoods.

From 2011-2016, the Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa Consortium undertook a major ESPA-funded programme to advance understanding of the connections between animal-to-human disease transmission and environment in Africa.
