Public Health | Assessing Risks & Trade-offs


In the communities I work with, I often see people making choices that are risky, but they have no other way sometimes. They are many examples in relation to disease transmission. People keep their animals inside their homes which puts them at risk for many zoonotic diseases. When we explain the risks, they try to change but it is not easy. Many don’t even have the space to keep them outside. The environmental conditions they face also make it hard to leave the animals outside as they need to look after them for their livelihood.
