Strategies to Prevent Spillover (STOP Spillover), a USAID-funded project led by Tufts University, features a global consortium of experts in human, animal, and environmental health focused on:

  • Understanding the risk factors that contribute to viral spillover from animals to humans
  • Implementing interventions at spillover points to prevent zoonotic disease
  • Assessing risk reduction practices and policies to prevent spillover and mitigate amplification and spread of disease
