The Ethiopian Society of Tropical and Infectious Diseases (ESTAIDs) announced that practical measures should widely be undertaken to minimize the spread of Zoonotic diseases in the country. Addressing the Ethiopian Society of Tropical and Infectious Diseases (ESTAIDs) inaugural conference, ESTAIDs President Dr. Tibebeselassie Seyoum said that 84 percent of the Ethiopian population lives in rural areas where they experience close contact with animals having a high risk of Zoonotic diseases. According to the president, the country couldn’t get the foreign exchange it deserves from the sale of domestic animals due to the prevalence of Zoonotic diseases. In addition, the diseases have become an obstacle to public health and food security calling for more focus and attention to reduce the spread,” he said. A Senior Advisor of Infectious Diseases with USAID, Dr. Yared Kebede, on his part said, “Over the past few years, Ethiopia has made significant progress in expanding healthcare services and combating major infectious diseases. Notably, the prevalence of HIV has been significantly reduced. TB case-detection rates and treatment-success rates have been increasing and, thus, reaching global targets.” Malaria control and treatment strategies have also become fruitful in significantly reducing malaria burden, he said. However, despite huge progress made in tackling these major diseases, significant rates of TB/HIV co-infections and multi-drug resistant TB have been registered, Dr. Yared added. He also cited the WHO 2012 Global report indicating Ethiopia ranks 11th among 22 TB high-burden countries. ESTAIDs was legally established in 2011 as a non-profit and non-governmental professional society to provide better health care for all Ethiopians.
