    About This Project

    Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, where tourist activities, rural environments, and wildlife are mixed. Recently, health problems have been observed in white-faced monkeys in a community on the Pacific coast, related to contact with domestic animals, such as dogs and cats. We aim to identify the risks of disease transmission that may be affecting this primate population and generate baseline information for the development of a preventive health program.
