The approach used for the study is based on a rapid appraisal of the literature and use of research tools, expert opinion and workshops to identify priorities for research into interventions for control of zoonoses in low and middle income countries (LMICs). Our analysis was based on detailed studies of 20 zoonotic diseases, selected for their development relevance and to be representative of the diversity of zoonoses generally. For each of the 20 selected zoonoses, literature reviews and expert interviews were undertaken to identify opportunities for innovative technologies and management practices for control of zoonoses, focused primarily but not exclusively on Asia and Africa. We considered diagnostics, drugs, vaccines and management practices for each selected disease.
