FAO, OIE, and WHO launch new online training on navigating the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide (TZG)

Zoonotic diseases can have reaching impacts on the health of people, animals, environments, economies and health systems globally. Countries must be prepared to detect, prevent and respond to these emerging and endemic diseases.

The Tripartite organisations (FAO, OIE and WHO) have launched a guide entitled ‘Taking a Multisectoral, One Health Approach: A Tripartite Guide to Addressing Zoonotic Diseases in Countries’, the TZG, to support countries in addressing zoonotic diseases. It provides principles, best practices and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface.

Today, a new online training is available for free to help you navigate and implement the TZG.
