HHALTER Project: Hendra Virus Research Project and New Survey
The second of five HHALTER surveys was made available for completion from mid May 2013 to mid July 2013. We would like to thank those of you who remained with us for the second survey, in addition to those who joined the HHALTER project in time for the second survey. We hope that you will all stay with us for the remaining three surveys! The HHALTER project aims to ensure that horse people are central to Hendra virus related policy development and research, and your involvement is critical to achieving this goal.
The second survey focused on aspects of personal health and safety, flying foxes and their management, and the (then) recent case of Australian Bat Lyssavirus in a horse. It also enabled us to re-evaluate your Hendra virus risk awareness and perceptions, as well as uptake of vaccination. This Newsletter report contains a brief overview of some of our findings.
The third Survey is now available for new participants. This survey there will be Gift Card giveaway where 20 randomly selected survey respondents will receive a $50 Woolworths Gift Card (that can be spent in a number of stores) when the survey closes on 20th December 2013.
