Factsheets on neglected foodborne parasitic zoonoses

Foodborne parasitic zoonoses, such as trichinellosis, echinococcosis, and cysticercosis, continue to cause significant burden in some populations around the world. Control and prevention of these disease require intersectoral collaboration among public health, animal health, food safety and WASH sectors.  In 2018, the regional tripartite partners organised a Meeting to Accelerate Prevention and Control of Neglected Foodborne Parasitic Zoonoses to bring together national focal points from various sectors. Following the meeting, factsheets on selected foodborne parasitic zoonoses were produced.
