Assessing Food Safety Interventions Relevant to Foodborne Zoonoses in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

This EatSafe report highlights the multiple and complex factors involved in mitigating foodborne zoonoses in animal source foods (ASF) sold at traditional markets in resource-poor settings. Many of those factors may also be relevant to pathogens in non-ASF. Given that most food safety interventions require a “farm to fork” approach, this report discusses interventions implemented at the market and consumer levels, as well as at the farm and processing stages. Factors that previous interventions have identified as inhibitory or enabling to effective food safety strategies, such as cultural settings, governance policies, or infrastructure, are highlighted.
