The article is based on the ZOE project, Zoonoses Online Education, (2016-1-RO01-KA203-024732), funded by Erasmus+. The project aims to create open digital educational resources in the field of veterinary medicine based on developing innovative guidelines on zoonotic diseases.
The article looks at the main findings of the project’s state-of-the-art research in Romania on the 5-10 most encountered and identified zoonoses in the last 10 years at national level.
The project research has evaluated the medical literature on zoonotic diseases in the veterinary field and highlighted a variety of diseases that cover the spectrum of infectious agents and display a variety of transmission patterns in different environments, identifying ways of intervention in the local context. This article looks at the second most spread disease present in the-state of-the-art research, Leishmaniasis.
The analysis will be incorporated into a guide and an open online course guide on main infectious diseases transmitted from non-human animals to humans, including videos capturing zoonoses bio-manipulation in simulation centres. It will also be part of a guide and an open online course on medical communication, including the zoonoses videos processed from a linguistic, cultural and communication point of view, available in six languages.
