"One health": the potential of closer cooperation between human and animal health in Africa. (Bovine tuberculosis in Ethiopia.)
Contributor(s):: Zinsstag, J., Tanner, M.
Emerging zoonoses affect livestock and humans, which calls for closer cooperation between animal and public health. Conceptually ideal, such cooperation is difficult to achieve and the causative agents of outbreaks are often confused. A lack of awareness may very likely be due to limited capacity...

The anti-social behaviour of urban dogs
Contributor(s):: Loew, F. M., Fraser, A. F.
Anti-social behaviour of urban dogs includes defaecation, biting, barking, street wandering, pack forming, exploring 'garbage' and public copulation. The authors discuss the use of ethology as a major tool in remedial action. They conclude that since heredity affects behaviour very considerably,...

A study of the interactions of human, pig, and the human pork tapeworm
Contributor(s):: Nemeth, D. J.
The role of pigsty-privies on Cheju Island, South Korea, in the transmission of helminth parasites from pig to man is discussed with particular reference to Taenia solium. It appears that pigsty-privies reduce the incidence of intestinal nematode infections in the human population but not that of...
On the human-animal boundary
Contributor(s):: Cassidy, R.
This paper considers contemporary Western attitudes towards animals. Whilst many studies of human-animal relations look backwards to the inheritance of Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes and others, this paper looks to the future. I want to suggest another batch of possibilities that may serve as...
Pet ownership and knowledge of zoonotic diseases in De Kalb County, Georgia
Contributor(s):: Fontaine, R. E., Schantz, P. M.
In a telephone survey in September 1986, 62% of interviewed households had pets (42% with dogs and 30% with cats). Respondents were poorly informed about the potential health hazards associated with animals. Only 63% of household heads believed that diseases of pets could be transmitted to humans...

Contributor(s):: Steinmetz, H. W., Zingg, R., Ossent, P., Eulenberger, U., Clauss, M., Hatt, J. M.
Traditional husbandry practices for the public display of Callitrichidae involve strict separation of animals and public. An important consideration for the evaluation of such management is the occurrence of health problems and potential zoonotic risks. This study compared animal data and...
