Abstract

Two constructs of social exchange theory explain the perception of veterinary and medical health professionals about knowledge sharing on zoonotic disease control. Two research questions were raised as follows: What is the perception of veterinary and medical health professionals about knowledge sharing in managing zoonotic diseases? How do the constructs of social exchange theory explain the perception of veterinary and medical health professionals about knowledge sharing in managing zoonotic disease? A qualitative method using a case study research design was used for the study. Purposive sampling technique was used to select participants for the study. Data were collected through a semi- structured interview and focus group discussion. The analysis was done using qualitative content analysis. Findings revealed that the two construct of social exchange theory “reciprocity” and “trust” explain the perception of health professionals about knowledge sharing in managing zoonotic disease.
