Miatrana Rasamoelina

Miatrana Rasamoelina (DVM) (r.miatrana@gmail.com) is a young veterinarian working at Institut Pasteur of Madagascar on the NifNaf project. She recently completed her veterinary thesis on West Nile disease in wild birds of Madagascar. She is particularly interested in wildlife diseases, in particular those which are transmissible to humans and which impact public health and the economy. She is dedicated to ecological issues and wants to contribute to the improvement of wildlife environmental situation and of animal health both in wild and domestic animals.

She is interested by ASF because it has a major economic impact for farmers, and it is important to better understand the domestic/wildlife interface to better control the disease for which there is still no vaccine available.
