Diseases that are naturally transmitted from animals to humans are called zoonoses. Outbreaks or events involving new or re-emerging zoonoses also occur in the Netherlands. New zoonotic diseases will continue to emerge. An appropriate response to emerging zoonoses requires close collaboration between medical and veterinary professionals. In this topic, we elaborate on the One Health approach in the Netherlands and our national and international activities on signalling, assessing and controlling zoonoses.
