Abstract: Deals with the protozoa, helminths and arthropods transmissible between man and lower animals, emphasizing methods of surveillance, prevention, and control that can reduce the incidence of zoonoses and foodborne disease. Parasitic conditions covered include toxoplasmosis, sarcosporidiosis, leishmaniasis, African and American trypanosomiases, malaria, Pneumocystis carinni infection, babesiosis, amebiasis, giardiasis and balantidiasis. The opening section concentrates on the significant economic losses caused by these infections, particularly in draught animals, meat, milk, and other foods and products of animal origin. Factors identified as influencing prevalence include the introduction of large-scale intensive animal production and social and cultural customs that determine food habits and attitudes towards domestic animals. The most extensive section concentrates on the principles of surveillance, prevention, control, and elimination of parasitic zoonoses. A system for classification of zoonoses is also presented. Other sections cover immunological tests used for a variety of zoonoses and list diseases in man, the causative organism, and the main vertebrate animals involved. The report concludes with recommendations for field and laboratory workers, parasitologists, and veterinary and public health agencies
