Treurniet, H.F. TNO Preventie en Gezondheid Publication year 1994 Abstract Zoonoses can be defined as infectious diseases that are transmitted from vertebrate animals to man under natural conditions. Applying this definition, a review is presented of zoonoses, occurring in the Netherlands. Data about this group of infectious diseases were collected from public health and veterinary data sources. From the results of the inventory it can be concluded that the major part of the zoonoses is caused by foodborne infections. It has been estimated that yearly a total number of 420,000 persons suffer from Salmonella and Campylobacter infections. The remaining zoonoses under study were found to be of limited importance for the general population; because of their concentration in some professional groups and because of the availability of preventive measures, these infections are important in certain subgroups of the population.
