Ugandan monkeys harbor evidence of infection with unknown poxvirus
Date:4/22/2008

wildlife are on the rise, Goldberg said.

Western Uganda has one of the fastest growing populations in sub-Saharan Africa, he said. People need land, and so do wildlife, and as competition for land becomes fiercer, contact between people and wildlife becomes more common.

The relatively high prevalence of HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa also makes human populations more susceptible to pathogens that might otherwise only afflict wildlife.

Goldberg and his colleagues hope the new study increases interest in the diseases currently circulating among mammals in sub-Saharan Africa.

My prediction is that the more we look, the more well find, he said.
