The Director of Swiss Tropical and Public Health (Swiss TPH) has encouraged Tanzanian health researchers to expand studies on zoonotic diseases because that area was neglected for a long time. Prof. Marcel Tanner told participants of an Ifakara Health Institute stakeholders meeting in Dar es Salaam that diseases caused by infectious agents that can be transmitted between (or are shared by) animals and humans are among the neglected tropical diseases worth intensifying research activities as they will be future national and global health challenges.
