Abstract

Most infectious diseases in the world are zoonotic diseases. Zoonotic diseases are now a public health problem that is taking the world's attention because it can cause a pandemic. Zoonotic pandemic diseases can have a very large impact on people's social and economic life. This article is a literature review of the approach of one health concept in addressing the spread of zoonotic diseases in Indonesia. Data collection is carried out through research libraries in the form of scientific journals, books, articles in mass media, and online media. Improving the world of livestock in Indonesia has an impact on humans and the environment. This can increase the risk of transmitting various infectious diseases from animals to humans. The spread of disease occurs quickly and can reach areas not limited by cities, islands, even continents. Zoonotic diseases are closely related to animals and humans, so the planning and control efforts undertaken must involve many people in charge, especially in the animal, human and environmental health sectors. Starting from the joint vigilance, the concept of One Health was born. One health approach needs to involve cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary by integrating professional concepts in animal health and human health. The concept of one health comprehensively looks at the components related to the process of emergence and spread of zoonotic diseases so that the picture of the disease is more complete and makes it easier to overcome.
