Ecohealth Emerging Infectious Diseases Research Initiative (EcoEID)

New infectious diseases, mostly of animal origin, are emerging more rapidly than ever. Southeast Asia is the current hotspot of disease emergence due to high population and animal densities, on the one hand, and relatively limited (human and animal) healthcare delivery capacity, on the other.

This project aims to understand the relationship between emerging infectious diseases of potentially pandemic proportions, and the agricultural, land utilization and ecosystem management practices that give rise to them. The project will begin with a competition in Southeast Asia for funding multi-country studies coordinated by an institution or consortium of institutions located in the region. The emphasis will be on capacity building, networking and policy impact at the regional level. Lessons learned from the Southeast Asian experience will inform similar activities in other regions such as South Asia, West Africa and Egypt.
