Download Publication Download Ag quickCAST

By looking through the lens of One Health, we identify key lessons learned in the dynamics of zoonotic diseases including their transmission and prevention. With this knowledge and the insights from the vignettes presented in this paper, we are able to make more effective recommendations to address the growing challenges of zoonoses. Finally, the paper discusses the need and benefits for agriculture to become more engaged in One Health activities and opportunities to better manage the global threats of zoonotic diseases.
