Re-evaluating the burden of rabies in Africa and Asia.
Rabies remains an important yet neglected disease in Africa and Asia, and disparities in the affordability and accessibility of post-exposure treatment and risks of exposure to rabid dogs result in a skewed distribution of the disease burden across society. Expand
Brucellosis and Q-fever seroprevalences of nomadic pastoralists and their livestock in Chad.
Seroprevalences in humans were relatively low (likely due to limited active foci in livestock), and being a camel breeder was associated with Q-fever seropositivity in humans. Expand
Estimating the Global Burden of Endemic Canine Rabies
Investment in dog vaccination, the single most effective way of reducing the disease burden, has been inadequate and that the availability and affordability of PEP needs improving, demonstrating that collaboration by medical and veterinary sectors could dramatically reduce the current large, and unnecessary, burden of rabies on affected communities. Expand
Bovine tuberculosis: an old disease but a new threat to Africa.
The impact of bovine TB on the health of animals and humans in Africa is examined to examine the impact of M. bovis in human TB cases. Expand
From “one medicine” to “one health” and systemic approaches to health and well-being☆
Faced with complex patterns of global change, the inextricable interconnection of humans, pet animals, livestock and wildlife and their social and ecological environment is evident and requiresExpand
Correction: Estimating the Global Burden of Endemic Canine Rabies
There are a number of errors in Table 3. The table legend should read: Breakdown of economic costs of rabies by cluster in millions of USD. The headings for columns six, seven, and eight areExpand
Invited review: Role of livestock in human nutrition and health for poverty reduction in developing countries.
Recognition of the complexity of the role livestock play in household decision-making and of the opportunities foregone due to these misconceptions can enhance the ability of livestock to contribute to human well-being in the developing world. Expand
Transmission dynamics and economics of rabies control in dogs and humans in an African city
A single parenteral dog rabies-mass vaccination campaign achieving a coverage of at least 70% appears to be sufficient to interrupt transmission of rabies to humans for at least 6 years, and beyond a time-frame of 7 years, it seems to be more cost-effective to combine parenTERal dog-vaccination campaigns with human PEP compared to human P EP alone.

Human Benefits of Animal Interventions for Zoonosis Control
Animal interventions to control zoonoses save money, even in resource-limited countries, and can be used to improve the quality of life in developing countries. Expand
Economics of brucellosis impact and control in low-income countries.
The prospects for national, technically feasible, and economically viable, national brucellosis control programmes in most low-income countries are limited, however, some targeted control programmes will be beneficial and can probably be feasibly managed and provide good economic returns. Expand
