We would like to acknowledge Joseph Haim and Matino Desauguste for their contributions to study implementation and text review, Frantzot Estime for his help in collecting survey data, and RoseDanie Cadet for her translation and logistical assistance in Haiti. We would also like to thank all the MARNDR vaccinators who volunteered their time in order to participate in the surveys. Preliminary results of this study were presented as a dissertation to partly satisfy the requirements for Master of Science in International Animal Health at the University of Edinburgh by the primary author, and he would like to acknowledge the teaching staff at this institution, particularly Michael Thrusfield for his suggestions regarding the statistical analysis.
