The International Alliance against Health Risks in Wildlife Trade supports a variety of projects along the One Heath spectrum. The project “Knowledge, attitudes, and practices towards the risk of zoonotic diseases, wildlife trade and wildlife consumption in Latin America” („KAP-Study wildlife“) is being carried out by the Center for International Health of the LMU Hospital, which is working with its partner universities in four Latin American countries.
The project aims to identify knowledge, attitudes, and practices towards the risk of zoonotic diseases, wildlife trade, and consumption in different populations living in urban and rural areas, including indigenous communities, of Latin America. Based on its results, the project team will develop innovative approaches, according to the local context, to educate communities and co-construct behavioral change approaches to raise awareness and change behavior in the population.
