Zoonoses are infectious diseases that are linked with human and animals. During the last few decades, human-animal linkages and close associations have increased the threats of the zoonotic diseases up-to several times. The increasing demands of animal-based edible proteins have resulted in a higher rate of human-animal interaction. Moreover, human, animal and environmental factors have increased the threat of vector-borne and food-borne illnesses globally. In the present study, we have focused on vector-borne and food-borne diseases that are transmissible between human and animal species. We have highlighted a few opportunities through which we can reduce the chances of emerging zoonotic illnesses in developing countries such as Pakistan.
