Zoonotic diseases (also referred to as zoonoses) are infections that are naturally transmitted, either directly or indirectly, between vertebrate animals and humans. In recent years, a One Health (OH) approach to managing endemic and emerging/re-emerging epidemic of zoonotic diseases has been pushed by international human and animal health agencies, based upon recognition of the need for human and animal (including wildlife) experts to work collaboratively in order to better prevent and control these diseases. In addition, collaboration with the environmental experts, including entomologists, geologists, climatologists, and geospatial experts is important in understanding the mechanisms and drivers of pathogen transmission across the species.
