Services for mobile populations

Social services and control of infectious diseases in mobile populations of Africa and Asia


This research project combines epidemiological, geographic, economic, and social analyses to assess the demographics and service needs of mobile populations such as mobile pastoralists or migrant vendors and develop generic interventions that can be adapted according to local requirements. Research is based on comparative studies of mobile communities in West Africa, the Horn of Africa, and Southeast Asia.
