HHALTER Project on Hendra Virus

May 2014 by Sophie Barrington

The HHALTER Project is examining how virus-related knowledge, attitudes and practices change over a two-year period through a series of five surveys circulated to horse owners around Australia. This project aims to ensure that horse people are central to Hendra Virus-related policy development and research.

The third survey particularly focused on Hendra Virus risk awareness, perceptions and knowledge with large sections dedicated to vaccination attitudes and uptake in the context of horse events and horse health management. The report on this survey (see PDF attached) contains a brief overview of some of the major findings.
