Indonesia hosts FAO pilot projects for tackling zoonoses

The Agriculture Ministry and the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have designated four areas in Indonesia for pilot projects to contain the spread of zoonoses.

The four places are Bengkalis in Riau, Ketapang in West Kalimantan, Boyolali in Central Java and Minahasa in North Sulawesi, said Andri Jatikusumah, a national technical advisor for One Health and Zoonosis Control of the FAO’s Emergency Center for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) Indonesia in Jakarta on Wednesday.

"We select areas based on the risks and the state of medical infrastructure and the commitment of regional administrations," he added, as reported by Antara.

Zoonoses are contagious diseases like rabies, anthrax and avian influenza (AI) that can spread from animals to human and vice versa.
