• diseases
  • Zoonoses are diseases of microbiological origin that can be transmitted from animals to people. (faqs.org)
  • While this may be the first time you are hearing the name zoonoses, these diseases have been around since the dawn of man. (floridataxwatch.org)
  • While the current list of nearly 900 diseases seems daunting, there is a constant threat of newly emerging zoonoses, which are pathogens that have just acquired the ability to affect humans, have mutated to become more virulent, or have developed drug resistance. (floridataxwatch.org)
  • Major modern diseases such as Ebola virus disease and salmonellosis are zoonoses. (wikipedia.org)
  • The programme aims to support European Member States in the surveillance of food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses and in responding to multi-country outbreaks. (europa.eu)
  • The overall objectives for the surveillance of Food- and Waterborne Diseases and Zoonoses are improving and harmonising the systems in the EU in order to tackle multi-country foodborne outbreaks and to increase the scientific knowledge regarding aetiology, risk factors and burden of food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses. (europa.eu)
  • For more detailed information on the surveillance of food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses by pathogen, please see the individual disease health topic pages and factsheets. (europa.eu)
  • In doing so, the programme aims to improve and strengthen the surveillance of and response to multi-country outbreaks of food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses at a European level. (europa.eu)
  • The FWD-Net network advises ECDC and contributes to strengthening surveillance and prevention of 21 food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses in the EU/EEA, in close collaboration with EFSA, WHO and global public health partners. (europa.eu)
  • The precarious position of these people who depend on their animals for survival is yet another reason why prevention and control of all animal diseases, including zoonoses, is particularly important for human health and well-being. (merial.com)
  • In GMS countries, helminth zoonoses are still imposing a huge impact on human and domestic animals, particularly schistosomiasis and liver fluke diseases (clonorchiasis, opithorchiasis and fasciolasis) which are emerging or re-emerging in some areas due to environmental change in the face of socioeconomic development.

  • Giardia
  • As the most common intestinal parasite, it's surprising how little is firmly known about Giardia, especially the zoonosis question. (bio.net)
  • meat
  • Brucellosis is a highly contagious zoonosis caused by ingestion of unpasteurized milk or undercooked meat from infected animals, or close contact with their secretions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Food
  • Many zoonoses can be prevented by following rules for safe food preparation, drinking only bottled or treated water, washing hands after touching animals, keeping pets healthy and up to date on their shots, following precautions to prevent mosquito or tick bites and staying away from wild animals.

  • Special
  • We do hope with more cooperative efforts and sharing the social-ecosystem-packaged strategy in GMS through this special thematic issue, the elimination program on helminth zoonosis in GMS will be accelerated. (biomedcentral.com)
  • cause
  • The importance of a zoonosis as a human infection does not depend only on its incidence in the population, but also on its severity, as some may cause serious illnesses or have higher mortality rate, despite relatively low number of cases. (thefishsite.com)
