Overview of the Project:
Surface water has the potential to accumulate microbes that circulate at the human-domestic livestock-wildlife interface often before disease outbreaks are reported. Our study aims to generate baseline data and novel insights into the depth of microbial diversity and candidate pathogens for epidemics in peri-urban Africa. It conceptualises the incorporation of environmental signals into the Surveillance Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS).
This study will establish how human, animal and environment data can be sync in the context of the One health concept.
