Reduce threats to mountain gorillas through negative human interactions associated with disease and human/wildlife conflict. Strengthen capacity of the National Park's staff to monitor gorilla health; train local Village Health and Conservation Team members in capturing sanitation and hygiene information; track diseases shared by gorillas with people, livestock and other wildlife; train Human and Gorilla Conflict Resolution (HUGO) teams in monitoring / reporting conflicts; and raise awareness about the One Health approach.

Strategic Direction: 2 Improve the protection and management of the KBA network throughout the hotspot.
