Abstract

People in many global regions can make complex trade-offs between the risk of contracting disease and the need to support their livelihoods, particularly in situations of poverty. Interventions to promote epidemic preparedness should therefore be sensitive to local contexts. These should incorporate knowledge within communities to ensure more effective zoonotic disease surveillance and control, while appreciating broader local priorities for health and well-being.
