Despite the high profile of new and emerging zoonotic diseases, many zoonoses remain widely neglected, particularly in poor communities within developing countries. However, evidence is growing that the burden of neglected zoonoses is substantial, not only because of human morbidity and mortality, but also because of the impacts of these infections on livestock health and production. We describe the nature and magnitude of these zoonotic disease problems, the reasons for their on-going neglect, and discuss the constraints and potential for designing and implementing cost-effective interventions for disease control.
