Two research areas

Researchers at the AGIRs unit focus their work on the health risks threatening local communities, societies and socio-ecosystems in the South. The unit is organized around two primary, interdependent domains: the ecology and evolution of diseases, and socio-ecosystems and public health. Multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approachs are followed, mobilizing the following fields within these two research axes: ecology, epidemiology, economics, anthropology, geography, biostatistics, applied mathematics, geomatics, and molecular biology.

The following are the key words and approaches in the two principal domains:

Ecology and evolution of diseases

  • Analysis of determinants
  • Biodiversity and health
  • Human/livestock-wildlife conflicts
  • Description of cycles and patterns
  • Mobility ecology
  • Ecology and modelling transmission
  • Microbial ecology
  • Wildlife diseases
  • Modelling and simulation
  • Study of causality
  • Contact and sector networks
  • Reservoirs and vectors

Socio-ecosystems and public health

  • Risk analysis
  • Participatory approaches
  • Risk mapping
  • Cost-effectiveness of management
  • ‘Bush meat’ supply chains
  • Surveillance systems
  • Health geography
  • Impacts and prioritization of diseases
  • Modelling and decision support
  • Ecosystem health
  • Veterinary public health
  • Ecosystem services
