Many studies have recalled that infectious diseases cannot be fully understood independently from the complex and heterogeneous socio-economic contexts within which they are embedded. Paying close attention to the knowledge, practices, relationships and concerns of the variegated groups interested in and affected by infectious diseases is indispensable to understand e.g. why some social groups are more vulnerable than others and to take into account their knowledge in order to co-design communication and prevention measures appropriate to their specific situations.

BioRodDis project is based on an early identification and engagement of stakeholders (Managers on one hand and Public at risk and physicians on the other hand). Results are regularly transferred to stakeholders, in particular to assess if win–win situations, in which a single management option could improve environmental protection and human health, might exist in Europe or, on the contrary, if national and micro-local contexts require modes of intervention adapted to their particularities. The participation of different countries, the focus on forests and large urban green spaces, and the transdisciplinarity approach that is at the core of BioRodDis will altogether enable identifying features (environmental, socio-cultural) that are common to these win-win situations and those that are specific.
