Self-Reported Selected Zoonotic Diseases among Animal Handlers in Ahmedabad City

The usual mechanism of disease or infection transmission from vertebrate animals to humans and vice-versa is classified as zoonosis. Globally out of all microbial pathogenic disease, 61% are zoonotic with 13% species are regarded as emerging or reemerging. Studies suggest the prevalence of innumerable known and important Z/D/S such as leptospirosis, rabies, avian influenza but the extent of burden of zoonotic diseases amongst high-risk cohorts such as animal handlers within urban geography not adequately documented.

Syndromic Surveillance Climate and Health Guidance Document

In general, data from public health surveillance can be used for short- and long-term planning and response through retrospective data analysis of trends over time or specific events. Combining health outcome data (e.g., hospitalizations or deaths) with environmental and socio-demographic information also provides a more complete picture of most vulnerable populations. Using syndromic surveillance systems for climate and health surveillance offers the unique opportunity to help quantify and track in near-real time the burden of disease from climate and weather impacts.

An Integrated Mosquito Surveillance Module in New York State

There were several stand-alone vector surveillance applications being used by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to support the reporting of mosquito, bird, and mammal surveillance and infection information implemented in early 2000s in response to West Nile virus. In subsequent years, the Electronic Clinical Laboratory Reporting System (ECLRS) and the Communicable Disease Electronic Surveillance System (CDESS) were developed and integrated to be used for surveillance and investigations of human infectious diseases and management of outbreaks.

Monitoring of Brucellosis in Agricultural Animals in Ukraine During 2013-2015

Brucellosis is one of the most widespread zoonosis in the world. Only 17 countries informed WHO that their territory is free from brucellosis. About 500 thousand cases of brucellosis in humans are registered in the world each year. The problem of brucellosis has remained actual to agriculture and health care for many years. Almost all agricultural animals are highly susceptible to brucellosis.

Epidemiology of visceral leishmaniasis in Georgia

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a zoonotic, protozoal infection that is endemic in Georgia, which commonly affects young children. In recent years, the incidence of VL has increased sharply and the geographic distribution has increased. Recently, VL moved to highly populated areas as new foci appeared from 2010-2015, during which, 610 laboratory confirmed cases of VL were registered in Georgia. The majority of cases were found in East Georgia (94.2%) and 5.8% of cases in West Georgia (representing new foci of VL in Georgia).

Seroprevalence of zoonotic diseases among farm animals in Kvemo Kartli (Georgia)

Zoonotic diseases are an important cause of human morbidity and mortality; around 75% of recently emerging human infectious diseases are zoonoses. Herein we report the first seroprevalence study to include a range of emerging or re-emerging zoonotic pathogens of economic concern (including: Bacillus anthracis, Coxiella burnetii, Francisella spp., Brucella spp., and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV)) affecting domestic animals (e.g., cattle, sheep, goat, and dog) in Georgia.

What do we know about the behavior of animal rabies in Chile through the last years?

Rabies is a zoonotic disease caused by an RNA virus from the family Rhabdoviridae, genus Lyssavirus. Worldwide distributed, control of rabies has been considered to be particularly amenable to a “One Health” strategy (1). In Chile, rabies was considered endemic in domestic dog population until the late 1960s, when a surveillance program was established, decreasing the number of human cases related to canine variants until the year 1972 (2). Rabies is recognized as a endemic infection in chiropterans of Chile and prompted the surveillance of the agent in this and other species (3).

First detection of Salmonella spp. in backyard production farms from central Chile

Characteristics and conditions of backyard production systems (BPS) transform them into potential maintainers of priority zoonotic agents, like Salmonella spp., highly important agent because of its impact in animal and public health. 

Objective

The purpose of this study was to detect the presence of circulating Salmonella spp. on backyard production systems (BPS) with poultry or swine breeding in central Chile
