Abstract:

Zoonotic diseases constitute a unique group of infectious diseases that affect humans as well as animals. About 73 per cent of emerging infectious pathogens are of zoonotic origin. Ticks are the major vectors involved in the dissemination of many infectious pathogens, responsible for human and animal diseases. In India, ticks and tickborne diseases have been implicated to cause projected loss of USD $500 million per year. Numerous wild and domestic animals are considered as reservoirs for tickborne infections in livestock, pet animals and humans. The accelerating appearance of zoonoses via ticks is a serious global public health threat, due to its morbidity and mortality in humans. Over the past three decades, vector-borne infectious agents have been on the move, initiating contemporary challenges for public health. There are three important drivers, namely anthropic, ecological and climatic which are responsible for rise in tick borne zoonoses. Reducing the risk factors will be the effective step in preventing the diseases. Understanding the evolutionary relationships between mechanical vectors, use of chemicals to manage ticks, wide spread usage of anti-tick vaccine will help to alleviate the effects of tick borne zoonoses. One Health approach for better management of emerging tick borne zoonotic diseases may be widely adopted.
