dc.description A behind-the-scenes account of an EcoHealth research study that identified sources, pathways and risk drivers in Ecosystems of Japanese Encephalitis in Kushinagar District of Uttar Pradesh in 2011-14 en
dc.description.abstract The study team that worked on the theme of “Identifying Sources, Pathways and Risk Drivers in Ecosystems of JE in an Epidemic-Prone North Indian District”, as part of their data collection amassed many interviews, built an impressive photo bank and captured nuggets from multiple interactions in formal and semi-formal settings. While the quantitative side of the study examined the eco-epidemiology of the disease, the qualitative arm looked at societal and health system factors, which could influence JE transmission and disease outcomes. Based on experiences of data collectors, an NGO partner, researchers, field staff and select core team members, it captures their anecdotal experiences through words and visuals, adding more depth and meaning to the overall narrative that might be useful to project managers and researchers. The JE Book on “Impressions, Anecdotes and Images from a Japanese Encephalitis Prone District of North India” emerged out of this conviction – that there was a larger story to be told. These pages from the lives of those who lived in Kushinagar will serve to guide researchers, policy makers, programme managers, donors and corporates in ways that will ensure the work will be carried forward. The final objective for all those who were associated with the project remains to step up awareness, contribute to system strengthening and build the capacities of communities to safeguard themselves and prevent JE related deaths en
