The Kibale EcoHealth Project is a long-term investigation of health ecology and epidemiology in the region of Kibale National Park, Uganda. Through an evidence-based scientific approach, the project strives to discover how anthropogenic changes to tropical ecosystems alter health-related outcomes and infectious disease dynamics in people, wildlife, and domestic animals. The Kibale EcoHealth Project combines ecology, epidemiology, social science, and veterinary and human medicine to achieve its overarching objective of improving human health, animal health, and wildlife conservation. The Kibale EcoHealth Project is dedicated to building capacity in Uganda for transdisciplinary research, education, and outreach in disease ecology and ecosystem health.
The ultimate goal of the Kibale EcoHealth Project is to protect the health and wellbeing of people, wildlife, and domestic animals while simultaneously ensuring the sustainability of the ecosystems we share.
