Zoonoses in Tropical Countries
Zoonotic diseases are causing a high burden on human as well as animal health, and also affect animal welfare and production negatively. Additional impacts may arise from trade restrictions. Zoonotic diseases are more likely to be emerging, which is evident by past and present pandemics. In addition to the high-profile emerging diseases, neglected zoonotic diseases are silently causing a toll on the human and animal population, particularly in tropical low and middle-income countries. Foodborne diseases have gained increasing attention as it is evident that the burden is much higher than previously believed, and animal-source foods are an important contributor to spread of zoonotic foodborne pathogens. In addition, antibiotic resistant bacteria can be spread from animals to humans, directly or via food or environment, and could contribute to the high, and increasing, burden of disease caused by antimicrobial resistant bacteria.
In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions on different aspects of zoonotic diseases, with particular focus on the epidemiology in low and middle-income countries, where the burden is the highest. We also welcome submissions focusing on interventions or biosecurity measures that can reduce spread and emergence of zoonotic diseases.
