This guide was developed to support countries in taking a One Health approach to address zoonotic diseases. This Guide, referred to as the Tripartite Zoonotic Guide (TZG) is flexible enough to be used for other health threats at the human-animal-environment interface; for example, food safety and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The TZG provides principles, best practices and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface. Examples and lessons learned from countries experiences are also included. By using the TZG and its associated operational tools, countries can build or strengthen their national capacities.
