World Zoonoses Day – One World, One Health: Prevent Zoonoses

World Zoonoses Day is celebrated on July 6 to raise awareness about diseases in the human-animal interface. More than two-thirds of emerging infectious diseases have their origins in animals. Examples of zoonotic diseases or zoonoses (diseases transmitted between animals and humans) include Zika virus, Ebola virus, avian flu, SARS, MERS, West Nile virus, Lyme disease, and yellow fever. The theme of the 2024 World Zoonoses Day is "One World, One Health: Prevent Zoonoses" This theme emphasises the need to break the transmission cycle to prevent future pandemics like COVID-19.

We at the ISID recognize the intersection of infectious diseases in humans, animals, and plants, and that infectious diseases cross all national and regional boundaries, and that effective long-term solutions require international scientific exchange and cooperation. The Society is dedicated to developing partnerships and finding solutions to the problems of infectious diseases across the globe and encourages the collaborative efforts of human health, veterinary health, and environmental health communities working locally, nationally, and globally for the best control and management of infectious diseases.
