Neglected Zoonoses and Antimicrobial Resistance: Impact on One Health and Sustainable Development Goals provides a thorough examination of how neglected zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance together hinder the achievement of sustainable development goals declared by the United Nations in the pursuit of a disease-free world. Neglected zoonotic diseases, as defined by the World Health Organization, are diseases likely to impact the livelihoods of livestock keepers and those living in periurban communities in developing countries. This book examines how such zoonoses affect the health of vulnerable farming populations and reduce the production capacity of their livestock.

Written by internationally recognized experts in the field of livestock and poultry zoonoses, this book provides the reader with a comprehensive description of modern sustainable development goals and defines neglected zoonotic diseases and their impacts on human physical, mental, social, and economic health. Subsequent chapters systematically describe the epidemiology, hosts and transmission, disease process, economic significance, and prevention and treatment protocols of key neglected zoonotic diseases, including echinococcosis, leishmaniasis, zoonotic tuberculosis, anthrax, brucellosis, leptospirosis, borreliosis, rickettsioses, and rabies. The book concludes with an assessment of the obstacles to achieving Sustainable Development Goals and possible mitigation strategies for veterinary researchers and policymakers alike.
