One Health: Professional Stakeholder Engagement Key to Tackling Zoonotic Disease

Globally, endemic and emergent disease risks persist as significant challenges to human and animal health. Rural livestock farming communities in low and middle-income countries are disproportionately affected by zoonoses and animal diseases due to poverty and concomitant poorly available health and veterinary services. Dr. Alison Z. Pyatt, Dr. Stephen C. Mansbridge and Dr. Vetja Haakuria explain why a One Health approach to tackling zoonosis is now broadly advocated and a successful strategy requires sector stakeholder recognition, inclusion, and engagement to ensure a holistic response to a complex problem.
