Epidemiology & Control of Zoonotic Diseases

The need for greater international co-operation, better local, regional and global networks for communicable disease surveillance and pandemic planning is also crucial issues to be debated on.

These diseases have contributed to the definition of new paradigms, especially relating to food safety policies and more generally to the protection of public health.

Finally, the examples described emphasise the importance of intersectorial collaboration for disease containment, and of independence of sectorial interests and transparency when managing certain health risks.

The annual cumulative number of deaths due to major infectious and parasitic diseases is estimated at approximately 13.3 million in children and young adults (one in two deaths in developing countries).

Six diseases cause 90% of these deaths, namely: acute respiratory infections including pneumonia and influenza (3.5 million), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) (2.3 million), diarrhoeal diseases (2.2 million), tuberculosis (1.5 million), malaria (1.1 million) and measles (0.9 million) (22).

Rabies, the leading cause of death in the zoonotic disease group, accounts for between 40K and 60K deaths per year.
