The mission of the Zoonotic Disease Program (ZDP) is to prevent and control diseases transmissible from animals (including mosquitoes and other vectors) to humans. ZDP staff work with our local health department partners and other agencies and organizations throughout the state to:
- Conduct surveillance of animal reservoirs and disease vectors
- Investigate zoonotic diseases and conditions in humans
- Carry out disease interventions and educational initiatives
- Provide consultations to animal and human health professionals
Our staff consists of epidemiologists, entomologists and a public health veterinarian.
