Resources for the Prevention and Control of Neglected Parasitic Zoonoses

Neglected parasitic zoonoses (NPZ), such as trichinellosis, echinococcosis, and cysticercosis, continue to place significant burdens on some populations around the world. Control and prevention of these diseases require intersectoral collaboration among the 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 and other resources were produced. This page lists resources to control and prevent NPZs published by FAO, OIE, or WHO.
