Tropical Zoonotic Diseases

Zoonoses are the disease transmission between animals and humans through agents, which include bacteria, fungi, parasites, virus, or any other disease causing agents. About 1415 pathogens are known to infect humans and 62% of all infectious human pathogens are zoonotic which represent 76% of all emerging pathogens in the past decade. Except for the newly emerging zoonoses which have caused pandemic in the previous years, like SARS and H5N1, the others are not prioritized by national and international health systems and are therefore labelled into neglected tropical diseases. The diseases included in the zoonotic NTDs are anthrax, bovine tuberculosis, brucellosis, cysticercosis, human African trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis and rabies.
