The concept of One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. Zoonoses are diseases that are transferable between humans and animals, and, therefore, all fall within the scope of One Health. More than 200 zoonotic pathogens have been described. Work on the control, prevention and, ultimately, elimination of zoonoses is therefore an essential contribution to One Health. We are inviting contributions on this topic, especially submissions on the control, prevention and elimination of zoonoses classified as “neglected” by the World Health Organization (WHO) and in contribution to their Roadmap towards the elimination of these diseases (http://www.who.int/neglected_diseases/diseases/en/).
