The PVD project is an interdisciplinary collaboration of researchers, health professionals, students, and local Preventório community members. Team members involved are from various organizations including the Universidade Federal Fluminense, The University of California, Berkeley, and The Family Health Program of Niterói (PMF-Niterói).

Innumerable other people have also contributed to making this project possible. Unfortunately we can not begin to thank everyone who was involved, on this page alone. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all of the study participants, without whom, in addition to the researchers and volunteers involved in this project, none of this would be possible

We would also like to thank José Neto (Audio MultiSolutions), Dona Manuela, Dona Edyr, Dona Maria da Gloria, ALL OF THE MED STUDENTS W/ LUCIA, ALL OF FABIO'S LAB, ALL OF THE PEOPLE IN THE VIDEO, ALL OF DIMAS/MARAS STUDENTS
