In 2002, the Table de coordination nationale de maladies infectieuses tasked a multisectoral working group with the development of a professional practice and intervention guide for persons who work with nonhuman primates. In 2010, the Table asked the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) to publish the guide and make it available to the public.

This guide is intended primarily for public health professionals, clinicians, emergency physicians, veterinary physicians, and occupational health and safety physicians who work in the organizations concerned with the exposure to nonhuman primates (including physicians responsible for occupational health in the public system).
