Using innovation and using apps to define rat ecology in Sint Eustatius
Eastern Caribbean Public Health Foundation has teamed up with the company VectorAnalytica to control rat populations and provide disease surveillance of rat borne diseases. Rat ecology can be very complex and managing data can become an issue. With the use of innovation, surveys are being conducted using apps to define rat ecology, see what pathogens they are potentially carrying and ultimately reducing populations and the threat of disease. Funding for this project is by the Nature Funds, Ministry of Economic Funds, NL.
