ARCHIVE: Zoonoses: UK Zoonoses reports

This is an annually published retrospective Report on Zoonoses in the United Kingdom (UK) presenting a summary of the trends and sources of zoonotic infection in humans, animals, food and feedstuffs in the UK.  These reports are compiled from data obtained from national surveillance systems and control programmes, research programmes and from data submitted to the European Community under the Zoonoses Directive 03/09/EEC by agencies contributing to the Report.

It is hoped that the report is especially useful to professionals who deal with zoonotic diseases, as well as giving non-specialists an insight into zoonoses, their prevalence and importance. It is not possible to cover all zoonoses in a report of this nature. Those considered important are covered in some detail, whilst others which occur infrequently, or are associated with certain occupations or activities are given only a brief mention.

If you have any queries regarding this, or previous reports please contact the team at: ZoonosesReport@defra.gsi.gov.uk
