Addressing transboundary animal diseases through a One Health approach

Addressing transboundary animal diseases through a One Health approach
Dec 2021

Transboundary animal diseases can spread rapidly irrespective of national borders, with serious consequences for the health of animals and humans as well as the livelihoods of livestock farmers and the food security of the communities they serve. The FAO Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) plans and delivers animal health assistance to more than 37 countries responding to the threat of high-impact diseases, helping to avoid spread and contributing to the protection of people and animals.

This quarterly newsletter is an update on FAO’s efforts to address transboundary disease threats using a One Health approach, featuring recent activities from ECTAD teams in Africa, Asia and the Near East.
