Closer intersectoral collaboration using existing tools can defeat zoonoses affecting humans

A newly published report finds that most neglected zoonotic diseases can be controlled through the use of existing knowledge and tools. The report urges to accelerate action by the global community in line with World Health Assembly resolutions that provide the policy framework to act collectively against these diseases.
