The zoonotic diseases, agricultural production, and impact channels: evidence from China. The outbreak and wide spread of COVID-19 poses a new threat to global food security. This paper aims to address two important policy related issues, that is which agricultural subsector suffers more under zoonotic diseases and how do zoonotic diseases affect these subsectors. Using provincial panel...

Land use-induced spillover: a call to action to safeguard environmental, animal, and human health. The rapid global spread and human health impacts of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, show humanity's vulnerability to zoonotic disease pandemics. Although anthropogenic land use change is known to be the major driver of zoonotic pathogen spillover from wildlife to human populations, the...

Forensic science interventions in wildlife mediated zoonotic outbreaks: a systematic review. Millions of people are suffering from the repeated emergence of zoonotic diseases across the globe. The latest pandemic of Covid-19 suspected to be originated from wild animals and was transmitted via an intermediate animal host to humans. Possibilities of the intentional use of zoonoses as...

Preventing the next pandemic: zoonotic diseases and how to break the chain of transmission. This report focuses specifically on the environmental side of the zoonotic dimension of disease outbreaks during the COVID-19 pandemic. It tries to fill a critical knowledge gap and provide policymakers with a better understanding of the context and nature of potential future zoonotic disease...

Tackling zoonoses in a crowded world: lessons to be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 zoonosis is bringing about a number of lessons to humanity. One is that of transforming our links with nature and, particularly, wildlife given the likely COVID-19 origin from illegal wildlife trading. Similar to vector borne diseases (VBD, diseases transmitted by vectors), the...

Zoonotic and reverse zoonotic transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2: a review and implications for Africa. There is an urgent need to properly understand the transmission dynamics of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in the event of continuous rise in morbidity in both humans and animals as well as an increase in the mortality rate in man. Since the novel SARS-CoV-2 emerged in...

Animal-human transmission models. In this chapter the authors primarily focused on the diseases of the first categories (i.e. without human-to-human transmission or with limited human-to-human transmission), which clearly require an intervention in the animal reservoir and in food safety or improved sanitation in order to interrupt...

Insect-borne diseases. This chapter describes the 2 main groups of disease-transmitting mosquitoes (anophelines and culicines) and arbovirus infections grouped into 3 symptom complexes: those producing mainly fever or arthritis (Chikungunya, O'nyong-nyong, West Nile, Orungo, Oropouche and Ross River fevers and Zika);...

Zoonoses. This book chapter focuses on zoonoses that are not transmitted primarily through food. Establishing systematic data collection is the first step to manage zoonoses. Management is complicated by heterogeneity: zoonoses may have a significant and debilitating effect on some communities but not on...

The role of social sciences in one health - reciprocal benefits. This chapter discusses the role of social sciences in developing a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives of health and illness in animals and humans, as well as in contributing to improve services and programmes using a One Health approach. Drawing on evaluated and ongoing examples from...

Zoonotic diseases: a one health perspective. The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases including zoonoses and persistence of neglected zoonotic diseases threaten the global health and economy of rural societies now more than any time in the history of humanity. Animals are the main reservoirs of zoonotic disease agents, and...

Onchocerciasis: status and progress towards elimination. Craw craw was first described almost 150 years ago. Since then considerable progress has been made in understanding the Onchocerca volvulus life cycle, its effects on the host (blindness, skin disease and epilepsy) and potential control measures. Early attempts were aimed at controlling the black...

Buruli ulcer: currents status and options for future prevention. Buruli ulcer (BU) is a serious skin disease caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans infection. Over the last 10 years, the understanding of the epidemiology, ecology, aetiology and physiopathology of BU has progressed considerably. This paper reviews the current knowledge of BU and the options for future...
